I watched her eyes, like a sorrowed river.
The remorse in them caused me to shiver.
Watery pools, blue as the night.
I watched her weep, what a horrible sight.
He sang his passionate music tonight
When I heard him I knew I'd been right.
Her heart beats with forbidden love of the most exquisite kind.
I guess I always knew in the back of my mind.
I knew that we could never be
But I closed my eyes and refused to see
I forced myself to be, what I'd always wanted to be
Her little Hero who saved her scarf from the sea
But now I fear I must concede
It was never her and me
She's shown me the truth clear as day
For she has never looked at me that way
I see now that she cannot stay
For the words, 'I love you' she cannot say
My governess was right, our dream was a game
But in the end we were both to blame
I see now that my heart untamed
Made me lose my life's true aim.
I am a Viscount, a powerful man
She is beneath me from where society stands
Because of her station, our love was banned
Now at last I understand
No, not our love the feeling was mine
And now I'm cursed to find
I'm tied to a gate, struggling against my binds.
Watching her give him a gesture that is more than kind
Her lips embrace his and her kiss becomes deep
This is an image that will haunt me in my sleep
She pulls away and he starts to weep
My heart hurts and my tears begin to seep
Welling high, because it's true
I see something I wish I knew
I close my eyes, my heart splits in two
For I see now why she would have to choose
And she would pick him, give the man his due
Because that man will love her
Her teacher will be true
Christine Daaë, your Angel loves you
Far more than I do.
