The Phantom of the Opera: Masquerade Songtext

[Chorus]
Masquerade!
Paper faces on parade . . .
Masquerade!
Hide your face,
So the world will
Never find you!
Masquerade!
Every face a different shade . . .
Masquerade!
Look around -
There's another
Mask behind you!

Flash of mauve . . .
Splash of puce . . .
Fool and king . . .
Ghoul and goose . . .
Green and black . . .
Queen and priest . . .
Trace of rouge . . .
Face of beast . . .
Faces . . .
Take your turn, take a ride
On the merry-go-round . . .
In an inhuman race . . .

Eye of gold . . .
Thigh of blue . . .
True is false . . .
Who is who . . .?
Curl of lip . . .
Swirl of gown . . .
Ace of hearts . . .
Face of clown . . .
Faces . . .
Drink it in, drink it up,
Till you've drowned
In the light . . .
In the sound . . .

RAOUL/CHRISTINE
But who can name the face . . .?

ALL
Masquerade!
Grinning yellows,
Spinning reds . . .
Masquerade!
Take your fill -
Let the spectacle
Astound you!
Masquerade!
Burning glances,
Turning heads . . .
Masquerade!
Stop and stare
At the sea of smiles
Around you!

Masquerade!
Seething shadows
Breathing lies . . .
Masquerade!
You can fool
Any friend who
Ever knew you!
Masquerade!
Leering satyrs,
Peering eyes . . .
Masquerade!
Run and hide -
But a face will
Still pursue you!

GIRY
What a night

MEG
What a crowd!

ANDRE
Makes you glad!

FIRMIN
Makes you proud!
All the creme
De la creme!

CARLOTTA
Watching us watching them!

MEG/GlRY
And all our fears
Are in the past!

ANDRE
Six months...

PIANGI
Of relief!

CARLOTTA
Of delight!

ANDRE/FIRMIN
Of Elysian peace!

MEG/GIRY
And we can breathe at last!

CARLOTTA
No more notes!

PIANGI
No more ghost!

GIRY
Here's a health!

ANDRE
Here's a toast:
To a prosperous year!

FIRMIN
To the new chandelier!

PIANGI/CARLOTTA
And may its
Splendour never fade!

FIRMIN
Six months!

GIRY
What a joy!

MEG
What a change!

FIRMIN/ANDRE
What a blessed release!

ANDRE
And what a masquerade!

CHRISTINE
Think of it!
A secret engagement!
Look - your future bride!
Just think of it!

RAOUL
But why is it secret?
What have we to hide?

CHRISTINE
Please, let's not fight . . .

RAOUL
Christine, you're free!

CHRISTINE
Wait till the time is right . . .

RAOUL
When will that be?
It's an engagement,
Not a crime!
Christine,
What are you
Afraid of?

CHRISTINE
Let's not argue . . .

RAOUL
Let's not argue . . .

CHRISTINE
Please pretend . . .

RAOUL
I can only hope I'll . . .

CHRISTINE
You will . . .

BOTH
. . . understand
In time . . .

ALL
Masquerade!
Paper faces on parade!
Masquerade!
Hide your face,
So the world will
Never find you!
Masquerade!
Every face a different shade!
Masquerade!
Look around -
There's another
Mask behind you!
Masquerade!
Burning glances,
Turning heads . . .
Masquerade!
Stop and stare
At the sea of smiles
Around you!
Masquerade!
Grinning yellows,
Spinning reds . . .
Masquerade!
Take your fill -
Let the spectacle
Astound you

PHANTOM
Why so silent, good messieurs?
Did you think that I had left you for good?
Have you missed me, good messieurs?
I have written you an opera!
Here I bring the finished score -
"Don Juan Triumphant"!

I advise you
To comply -
My instructions
Should be clear -
Remember
There are worse things
Than a shattered chandelier . . .

Your chains are still mine -
You will sing for me!
