Erik, do you not see?
You mightn't be the one for me.
But then again I do not know,
Which way my heart means to go.
My father's dead and now I'm lost.
What will my decision cost?
Do you think that I can't tell?
You've got me cast under your spell?
Your eyes they love but yet they hate
With loneliness my heart you bate
Still for some reason I feel
Stuck in a dreamland I wish were real.
You enthrall me with your mystery…
But Raoul and I have history
The darkness in me seeps away
He leads me to the light of day.
Still I must give you an answer
For fear ignorance becomes a cancer
I do not love Raoul for looks
It is not my heart that he took
Raoul loves my voice and face
But my heart feels like empty space
Nostalgia comes, and then it goes
Now at last I finally know
My childhood has broken down
I have made my decision now
Raoul says he loves me
He swears that it's true.
Up till now I never knew.
That Raoul's love, is hollow, he practiced what to do.
His noble education, dictates what he ought to know
Now, that I think about it, it's time to let it go.
I loved him back, but I love you
More-so now I know what to do
I run to you, as fast as light and hold my arms out for you
Because no, Erik, Raoul does not love me like you do
