Andrew Lloyd Webber Monologues

The Phantom of the Opera (Raoul)

No more talk of darkness. Forget these wide-eyed fears, I’m here. Nothing can harm you. My words will warm and calm you. Let me be your freedom. Let daylight dry your tears. I’m here, with you, beside you, to guard you and to guide you. … Say you’ll share with me one love, one lifetime. Let me lead you from your solitude… Say you need me with you here, beside you . Anywhere you go, let me go too. Christine, that’s all I ask of you… Anywhere you go, let me go too. Love me, that’s all I ask of you.

The Phantom of the Opera (The Phantom)

You have come here, in pursuit of your deepest urge. In pursuit of that wish which ’til now has been silent… SILENT! I have brought you, that our passions may fuse and merge. In your mind you’ve already succumbed to me. Dropped all defenses, completely succumbed to me. Now you are here with me. No second thoughts. You’ve decided… DECIDED! Past the point of no return. No backward glances… our games of make-believe are at an end! Past all thought of if or when. No use resisting… abandon thought and let the dream descend! What raging fire shall flood the soul? What rich desires unlock its door? What sweet seductions lie before us? Past the point of no return. The final threshold… what warm unspoken secrets will we learn? Beyond the point of no… return!

Phantom of the opera (Christine Daae)

You were once my one companion
You were all that mattered
You were once a friend and father
Then my world was shattered
Wishing you were somehow here again
Wishing you were somehow near
Sometimes it seemed
If I just dreamed
Somehow you would be near
Wishing I could hear your voice again
Knowing that I never would
Dreaming of you won’t help me to do
All that you dreamed I could
Passing bells and sculpted angels,
Cold and monumental.
Seem, for you, the wrong companions,
You were warm and gentle.
Too many years fighting back tears,
Why can’t the past just die!
Wishing you were somehow here again,
Knowing we must say goodbye!
Try to forgive, teach me to live!
Give me the strength to try!
No more memories, no more silent tears!
No more gazing across the wasted years!
Help me say goodbye
Help me say goodbye…
