Down Once More .../Track Down This Murderer ... - Charles Hart, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Richard Stilgoe, Phantom Of The Opera Original London Cast & Michael Reed

PHANTOM: 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!

(Faintly) Track down this murderer, he must be found! {x2}

PHANTOM: Hounded out by everyone,
met with hatred everywhere
No kind words from anyone,
no compassion anywhere (sobs)
Christine (says): Why? Why!?

GIRY: Keep your hand at the level of your eyes
(echoed by RAOUL and a CHOIR)

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 this infection which poisons our love
This face which earned a mothers fear and loathing
A mask, my first unfeeling scrap of clothing
Pity comes to 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!

(captures RAOUL and pins him to the gate)

Order your fine horses now!
Raise 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: The 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: To late for turning back
To late for prayers and useless pity

Raoul: Say you love him and my life is over
For either way you choose he has to win

Phantom: Past the point of no return,
no use in fighting
For either way you choose you cannot 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?

Christine: Angel of music you deceived me
Why do you curse mercy?

Phantom: Past the point of no return
The final threshold...

Raoul: Christine say no. Say no
Don't throw your life away for my sake
I fought so hard to free you

Christine: Angel of music,
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!
(She Kisses Him Long on the lips while Raoul watches in horror)

(Fainted Echo) Track down this murderer
he must be found

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 never to tell the secret
you know of the angel in hell
Go now... Go now and leave me
(The phantom is in his room listening to his music box
and begins to sing)
Phantom: Masquerade...
Paper faces on parade...
Hide your face so the world will never find you...
(Christine re-enters the room and walks slowly towards him. She takes off her ring and gives it to the Phantom)
Phantom: Christine I love you...

Christine/Raoul:(in the distance to):
Say you'll share with me, one love, one lifetime...
say the word and i will follow you...
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...
