Down Once More


Down once more  - Phantom of the Opera



Down once more to the dungeon of my black despair!
Down we plunge to the prison of my mind!
Down that path into darkness deep as hell!
Why, you ask, was I bound and chained in this cold and dismal place?
Not for any mortal sin, but the wickedness of my abhorrent face!


PHANTOM:
Hounded out by everyone!
Met with hatred everywhere!
No kind word from anyone!
No compassion anywhere!

Christine, Christine ...
Why, why ...?


CHRISTINE:
Have you gorged yourself at last in your lust for blood?
Am I now to be prey to your lust for flesh?


PHANTOM:
That fate which condemns me to wallow in blood, has also denied me the joys of the flesh ...
This face - the infection which poisons our love ...
This face, which earned a mother's fear and loathing ...
A mask, my first unfeeling scrap of clothing ...
Pity comes too late - turn around
and face your fate: an eternity of this before your eyes!


CHRISTINE:
This haunted face holds no horror for me now ...
It's in your soul that the true distortion lies ...


PHANTOM:
Wait! I think, my dear, we have a guest!
Sir, this is indeed an unparalleled delight!
I had rather hoped that you would come.
And now my wish comes true - you have truly made my night!


RAOUL:
Free her!
Do what you like only free her!
Have you no pity?


PHANTOM:
Your lover makes a passionate plea!


CHRISTINE:
Please Raoul, it's useless!


RAOUL:
I love her!
Does that mean nothing?
I love her!
Show some compassion ...


PHANTOM:
The world showed no compassion to me!


RAOUL:
Christine, Christine...
Let me see her...


PHANTOM:
Be my guest, sir ...
Monsieur, I bid you welcome!
Did you think that I would harm her?
Why would I make her pay for the sins which are yours?
Order your fine horses now!
Raise up your hand to the level of your eyes!
Nothing can save you now - except perhaps Christine...
Start a new life with me -
Buy his freedom with your love!
Refuse me, and you send your lover to his death!
This is the choice -
This is the point of no return!


CHRISTINE:
That tears I might have shed for your dark fate grow cold, and turn to tears of hate!


RAOUL
Christine, forgive me, please forgive me...
I did it all for you,
And all for nothing...

CHRISTINE
Farewell, my fallen idol and false friend
We had such hopes, and now those hopes are shattered!

PHANTOM
Too late for turning back...
Too late for prayers and useless pity...

RAOUL
Say you love him
And my life is over...

PHANTOM
Past all hope of cries for help.
No point in fighting,

PHANTOM (RAOUL)
For either way you choose you cannot win.
(Either way you choose he has to win!)

PHANTOM
So do you end your days with me,
Or do you send him to his grave?

RAOUL
Why make her lie to you to save me?

PHANTOM
Past the point of no return

CHRISTINE
Angel of Music...

RAOUL
For pity's sake, Christine, say no!

CHRISTINE
Who deserves this?

PHANTOM
The final threshold...

RAOUL
Don't throw your life away for my sake!

CHRISTINE
Why do you curse mercy?

PHANTOM
His life is now the prize
Which you must earn!

RAOUL
I fought so hard to free you...

CHRISTINE
Angel of Music...

PHANTOM
You've passed the point of no return!

CHRISTINE
You deceived me!
I gave my mind, blindly!

PHANTOM
You try my patience...
Make your choice!


CHRISTINE
Pitiful creature of darkness,
What kind of life have you known?
God give me courage to show you,
You are not alone...

MOB
Track down this murderer,
He must be found!
Hunt out this animal, who runs to ground!

PHANTOM
Take her, forget me,
Forget all of this.
Leave me alone,
Forget all you've seen.

Go now don't let them find you,
 
Take the boat.
Swear to me, never to tell.
The secret you know of the angel in Hell.

Go now! Go now, and leave me!



Masquerade
Paper faces on parade.
..
Masquerade
Hide your face so the world will never find you...
Christine, I love you...

CHRISTINE
Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime
RAOUL
Say the word and I will follow you
CHRISTINE
Share each day with me
Each night, each morning

PHANTOM
You alone, can make my song take flight
It's over now, the music of the night!
