A slightly shorter song-phic than my last one, but I love the lyrics in this song. This is narrated by Christine or by Erik. That's for you to decide. Enjoy and review please!

The chill in the night air slightly jars my senses, causing me to pull my thick cloak around my body tighter than before. The wind cuts across the rooftop of the opera with a low moan, pushing leaves across its iron surface with a dry scraping sound. Over the edge of the rooftop, the soft lights and sounds of Paris at night happily greets my rather somber mood, mocking my lonely existence where I now stand. I walk to the edge, below the proscenium where I had once stood before many times with you, my beloved. We would come here to be away from the prying eyes of the public to share a quiet moment. I can still feel your presence here, even though you have been gone for quite a long time.

Who can say for certain
Maybe you're still here
I feel you all around me
Your memories so clear

In remembrance of you, I close my eyes and listen for your voice on the wind, as though I can still hear you. Can you still hear me where you've gone? I gave my soul to you long ago, surely, God would not deny us that connection still.

Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak
You're still an inspiration
Can it be
That you are mine
Forever love
And you are watching over me from up above

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile to know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

Come for me and wrap your Angel's wings around me. Take me with you. I miss you so. I wish I could see your face once more, smiling at me. I wish there were some sign that you still existed in one form or another. I miss your voice, inspiring me to dare for greater things. When we would sing together, all the rest of the world disappeared.

Are you gently sleeping
Here inside my dream
And isn't faith believing
All power can't be seen

As my heart holds you
Just one beat away
I cherish all you gave me everyday
'Cause you are mine
Forever love
Watching me from up above

And I believe
That angels breathe
And that love will live on and never leave

I will be with you soon. I can feel it deep down inside me. Since you have been gone, the other half of my soul has been calling to its mate. My soul is searching for you and will not be at rest until you are with me once more. I cannot live without you my Angel. I love you more than this life I'm now forced to live without you and I look forward to the day I can leave this place and go to where you are now.

Fly me up
To where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
To know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

I know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

If God would be willing, I offer my soul to him tonight. I pray that he takes me soon. I could take three small steps off this rooftop and be with you right now, but I know that isn't what you would want me to do. You would want me to live on and remember you until the time was right. So, in memory of you, my dear, I shall wait patiently and listen for your voice on this rooftop to call me home to you.
