And though you turn from me To glance behind The Phantom of the Opera is there, Inside your mind… Those who have seen your face Draw back in fear. I’m the mask you wear, It’s me they hear. My spirit and my voice In one combined. The Phantom of the Opera is there, Inside my mind… In all your fantasies, You always knew That man and mystery Were both in you. And in this labyrinth Where night is light The Phantom of the Opera is there, Inside my mind…
