You've been living so long in hiding. Hiding behind that false mask.
You know and I know that you ain't got that long to last,
Your looks and feelings are just the remains of your past
Standing in the wings there, you wait for the curtain to fall.
Knowing the terror and holding you have on us all.
I know that you're gonna scratch me and maim me and maul.
You know I'm helpless from your mesmerising cat call.
Keep your distance, walk away don't take his bait.
Don't you stray don't fade away.
Watch your step, he's out to get you
Come what may,
Don't you stray, don't fade away.
I'm running and hiding, in my dreams you're always there.
You're the Phantom of the Opera, you're the devil you're just out to scare.
You damaged my mind and my soul just floats through the air.
You haunt me, you taunt me, you torture me back at your lair.
