Phantom of the Opera Lyrics

4. Phantom of the Opera (7:20)
Track rating :  95 / 100      Votes :  2     
I've been looking so long for you; now you won't get away from my grasp
You've been living so long in hiding; in hiding behind that false mask
And you know and I know that you ain't got long now to last
Your looks and your feelings are just the remains of your past

You're standing in the wings; there you wait for the curtain to fall
Knowing the terror and holding you have on us all
Yeah, I know that you're gonna scratch me, maim me and maul
You know I'm helpless from your mesmerising cat call

Keep your distance, walk away; don't take his bait
Don't you stray, don't fade away
Watch your step, he's out to get you; come what may
Don't you stray from the narrow way

I'm running and hiding in my dreams - you're always there
You're the Phantom of the Opera, you're the devil, you're just out to scare
You damaged my mind and my soul - it just floats through the air
You haunt me, you taunt me; you torture me back at your lair
