We Have All Been Blind

This song is by Andrew Lloyd Webber and appears on the movie soundtrack The Phantom of the Opera (2004).

We have all been blind
And yet the answer is staring us in the face
This could be the chance
To ensnare our clever friend

We're listening...

Go on.

We shall play his game
Perform his work, but remember we hold the ace
For if Miss Daae sings
He is certain to attend

We are certain the doors are barred

We are certain the police are there

We are certain they're armed

The curtain falls
His reign will end!

Christine (spoken):
Raoul, I'm frightened...
Don't make me do this
It scares me,
Don't put me through this ordeal by fire.
He'll take me, I know
We'll be parted forever...
He won't let me go.

What I once used to dream, I now dread.
If he finds me, it won't ever end.

(Sung) And he'll always be there,
Singing songs in my head...
He'll always be there,
Singing songs in my head...

You said yourself,
He was nothing but a man...
Yet while he lives,
He will haunt us till we're dead.

Twisted every way
What answer can I give?
Am I to risk my life
To win the chance to live?
Can I betray the man
Who once inspired my voice?
Do I become his prey?
Do I have any choice?

He kills without a thought
He murders all that's good
I know I can't refuse...
And yet, I wish I could
Oh God, if I agree
What horrors wait for me
In this, the Phantom's opera

Christine, Christine
Don't think that I don't care
But every hope, and every prayer
Rests on you now

Seal my fate tonight
I hate to have to cut the fun short
But the joke's wearing thin
Let the audience in
Let my opera begin!
