To Pain My Heart Selfishly Dooms Me

THE PHANTOM:
To pain my heart selfishly dooms me,
My senses have devoured my soul.
This cruel love tortures, consumes me,
Love I know I will never control.

(The following two verses are sung in harmony together: The Phantom and Raoul)

Mad with passion, I bow before you,
Till the day hell makes you my bride.
I despise and adore you...
I only want to die by your side.

RAOUL:
Full of joy, how I adore you,
With a love I cannot hide!
Oh, Christine, how I adore you,
Soon heaven will make you my bride.

(The previous harmony ends. The following three verses are sung in harmony together: The Phantom, Raoul and Christine)

THE PHANTOM:
My dreams delude me,
Devouring my soul.
I curse this love that so eludes me,
This love I cannot seem to control.
I despise and adore you!
My heart so lost before you!
I despise and adore you!
How I wish that I controlled my feeble soul.
I try to turn away,
But I know that I adore you...
You will always be mine.
Be mine...

RAOUL:
Take my heart,
The willing heart you stole.
I am yours,
Your love subdues me.
Oh, Christine, how I adore you,
Must I say how I adore you,
Must I say how I'll always adore you? Every glance confesses my longing,
Every sigh is so revealing,
They show I'm under your spell,
They show that I adore you...
You'll always be mine.
Be mine...

CHRISTINE:
This man has conquered and wooed me,
I have lost my heart and soul...
I am yours!
Love has subdued me,
And it's a love I cannot control,
My own one, I adore you.
Surrendering unto your charms,
I softly fell into your arms.
I give all my love, I give all my love to you!
I give all my heart, I give my heart to you!
My own one, I adore you, my own one, I adore you.
You'll always be here in my heart, my heart...
So be mine...

(The previous harmony ends with the song)
