NIGHTWISH – The Phantom Of The Opera

“The Phantom Of The Opera” taken from END OF AN ERA. Recorded at our live performance at the Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland, on October 21, 2005, the final concert of a long worldwide tour for our album Once.

Lyrics:

[Verse 1: Tarja Turunen]
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
[Verse 2: Marko Hietala]
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

[Verse3: Tarja Turunen & Marko Hietala]
Those who have seen your face draw back in fear
I am the mask you wear, it’s me they hear
Your spirit and my voice in one combined
The Phantom of the Opera is there inside my/your mind

He’s there, the Phantom of the Opera
Beware, the Phantom of the Opera

[Verse 4: Tarja Turunen & Marko Hietala]
Where all your fantasies, you always knew
That man and mystery lay both in you
And in this labyrinth where night is blind
The Phantom of the Opera is here inside my/your mind

[Outro]
Sing, my Angel of Music
He’s there the Phantom of the Opera
Sing for me
Sing, my Angel of Music
Sing for me
