Think Of Me

Reno, you silly forgot Think Of Me! I agree that the other songs rock too, but this one is my favorite. Angel Of Music is probably second on the list, followed by Music of the Night in a close third.
I absolutelly love the lyrics! This song is absolutelly beautiful, whether it means anything to you or not. But if it doesn't touch your heart...I think there's something wrong with you.
I agree with Reno...Phantom Of The Opera is a fabulous musical gone book gone movie, although I've only seen the movie. I can imagine the book is good, too...ask Reno. But I bet the musical blows them all out of the water.
Anyway, here are the lyrics to Think Of Me... In the movie, the female vocals are sung by Christine, and the male vocals are sung by Raoul.

Think Of Me
From the Film Phantom Of The Opera

{female vocals}
Think of me, think of me fondly,
when we've said goodbye.
Remember me once in a while -
please promise me you'll try.
When you find that, once again, you long
to take your heart back and be free -
if you ever find a moment,
spare a thought for me

We never said our love was evergreen,
or as unchanging as the sea -
but if you can still remember
stop and think of me . . .

Think of all the things
we've shared and seen -
don't think about the things
which might have been . . .

Think of me, think of me waking,
silent and resigned.
Imagine me, trying too hard
to put you from my mind.
Recall those days
look back on all those times,
think of the things we'll never do -
there will never be a day,
when I won't think of you . . .

{male vocals}
Can it be? Can it be Christine?
Long ago, it seems so long ago
How young and innocent we were...
She may not remember me,
but I remember her...

{female vocals}
Flowers fades,
The fruits of summer fade,
They have decisions, so do we
but please promise me, that sometimes
you will think of me!

Phantom of the Opera!

Hey guys, new music genre for ya, if you've never seen Andrew Lloyed Webber's, Phantom of the Opera you have missed an absolutely amazing performance with some of the best singers, lyrics, and music of all time. Needless to say, watch it as soon as you possibly can. Emmy Rossum is stunning, "voice like an angel" as she is suppose to have, she fits the part absolutely perfectly, she is such an amazing actress and vocalist, and only 17 when she filmed Phantom! Gerard Butler has a very unoperatic voice but is amazing as well. The lyrics for all of the songs are incredible, just breath taking, and with the musics the entire thing is just, omg there's no words that can desribe, here are some lyrics from my favorite songs, not all of the lyrics sometimes, but some favorites and samples...

Phantom of the Opera

In sleep he sang to me
In dreams he came
That voice which calls to me
and speaks my name
And do I dream again
for now I find
The Phantom of the Opera is there
Inside my mind

Sing once again with me
Our strange duet
My power over you
grows stronger yet
And though you turn from me
to glance behind
The Phantom of the Opera is there
Inside your mind

Those who have seen your face
Draw back in fear
I am the mask you wear
It's me they hear...

Your/My spirit and my/your voice
in one combined
The Phantom of the Opera is thereInside my/your mind

*the your / mys are where the Phantom and Christine are both singing one of them, Christine says Your spirit and my voice, while the Phantom says My spirit and your voice, meaning together they make up the whole song. The meaning behind all the lyrics is incredible...

Angel of Music

Father once spoke of an angel
I used to dream he'd appear
Now as I sing, I can sense him
And I know he's here
Here in this room he calls me softly
Somewhere inside hiding
Somehow I know he's always with me
He, the unseen genius

This is an amazing verse by Emmy, she just nails it, so beautifully.

Music of the Night by far has the most incredible lyrics, I have to add the whole of them here, it's the Phantom's solo, and the words are just so so true and gorgeous, I cannot get enough of this song!

Music of the Night

Nighttime sharpens, heightens each sensation.
Darkness stirs and wakes imagination.
Silently the senses abandon their defences

Slowly, gently, night unfurls its splendour.
Grasp it, sense it tremulous and tender.
Turn your face away from the garish light of day,
Turn your thoughts away from cold, unfeeling light -
and listen to the music of the night...

Close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams!
Purge your thoughts of the life you knew before!
Close your eyes,let your spirit start to soar!
And you'll live as you've never lived before

Softly, deftly, music shall caress you
Hear it, feel it, secretly possess you
Open up your mind, let your fantasies unwind,
in this darkness that you know you cannot fight
the darkness of the music of the night.

Let your mind start a journeythrough a strange, new world!
Leave all thoughts of the life you knew before!
Let your soul take you where you long to be!
Only then can you belong to me

Floating, falling, sweet intoxication!
Touch me, trust me, savour each sensation!
Let the dream begin, let your darker side give in
To the power of the music that I write
The power of the music of the night

You alone can make my song take flight
Help me make the music of the night

Well I was going to bold the phrases I liked the most but I think I would have nearly the entire song bolded, these lyrics are just too perfect. There are so many other great lyrical songs in the movie, here's a link to all of the song lyrics, so please see the movie, please listen to the songs, and be ready to just become obbsessed with it.
