When you performed your part in Faust

I thought, 'I must see her, no matter the cost.'

I took you to my lair through the mirror

Down under the cellar

And on top of the lake

I sang songs only you could hear.

Christine,

My dear, my love, my light

Lead me from my cold, dark night.

You were my one single light

In my world full of cold, dark night.

As I stood upon Apollo's Lyre

I felt I would burst into tears

For seeing you so much in love

Made me curse the gods above.

Oh, Christine

My love, my light

Lead me from my cold, dark night.

I sit here and hum a song

I've heard for so very long.

A song of love and war and hate.

A song destined to be my fate.

I feel as though my heart spilt in two.

My Angel, what am I to do?

Oh, Christine

My love, my light

Lead me from my cold, dark night.

You were my lovely Angel

But I was just a stranger.

Now, my love, I find that I

Am destined to be alone when I die.

Look for it in the paper as you lie in your bed

The obituary notice that says "Erik is dead."

Christine,

My dear, my love, my light

You've led me from my cold, dark night

tear… tear… sniffle
