You're Beautiful

Songfic to "You're Beautiful" by James Blunt. ErikxChristine.

Erik muses on his relationship with Christine years in the future. Webber (play/film). Erik POV. Rated T for one word. Song belongs to James Blunt. I was struck by the lyrics and it occurred to me the similarity between the men and woman mentioned in the song and Erik, Christine, and Raoul. Sorry to anyone who has done this before! Also, I updated my LJ (http/ life is brilliant.
My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I'm sure.
She smiled at me on the subway.
She was with another man.
But I won't lose no sleep on that,
'Cause I've got a plan.

Beautiful. She was so beautiful. That face…those dark eyes that seemed so deep and …those chestnut curls…all so beautiful. Most of all, that voice. It had stopped my heart. She looked so sweet and small at the ballet barre. There were so many ballerinas but she simply stood out. Such a beautiful dancer. Giry said otherwise, of course. Immediately, I got to work. She deserved something special. Yes…she was going to be a star. How could she not? She would be my star. My angel from Heaven. But then…disaster. Oh, God…how could there have been another? And now…more than a century later…she's here again. But still with that damn fop! How could he possibly be back, too? So many challenges to overcome.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Fucking high,

And I don't think that I'll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

I have "lived" all these long years alone in the catacombs of Paris, waiting for her to return to me, body and soul. She is still so beautiful. Yet fate still works against me, even now. She's back…but with him. His name is not even worthy of pen on paper. Damn! How will I ever…never mind. I must accept it. She is his. As much as it hurts…she is his. But I love her. I love her, I love her, I love her.


You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.
You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it's time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.

To this day, it is not I who haunts her…it is she who haunts me. And it will always be.
