''Please Miss Giry, I Want To Go Back...'' [GUSTAVE]
Please Miss Giry, I want to go back;
I want my mother

[MEG]
The world is hard, the world is mean
It's hard to keep your conscience clean

[GUSTAVE]
Please! You're hurting me!

[MEG]
The sea is calm, the sea is grey,
It washes everything away

[GUSTAVE]
I can't swim!

[MEG]
Don't worry, it's almost over.
Sink into the deep,
Blue, and cool, and kind
Then, drift off to sleep;
Let the past unwind
Leave the hurt behind.

[CHRISTINE]
Gustave!

[GUSTAVE]
Mother!

[MEG]
No, I'm not done yet!

[PHANTOM]
Let go of the boy, now!

[MEG]
Not another step!

[PHANTOM]
Let go of him, girl
Or, I promise you, I'll--

[MEG]
Not another word!
Always wondered how to make you watch,
Well watch me now!

I took a little trip to Coney Island;
I took a little trip, because of you.
I did as Mother said,
And followed where you led,
And tried to do what little I could do.

Well,
Here's the way it works on Coney Island:
They make you pay for every little crumb
I gave what they would take;
I gave it for your sake.
Now look at me,
And see what I've become.

Bathing beauty on the beach;
Bathing beauty in her dressing room.
Bathing beauty in the dark;
On their laps, in their arms,
In their beds!

[MADAME GIRY]
Meg! My little Meg...

[PHANTOM]
What are you saying?

[MEG]
Who helped you raise the money?
Who helped the permits come through?
Who greased the wheels
Of your high flying deals;
Bought you time when the bills came due?

Who swayed the local bosses?
Curried favor with the press?
Oh, not her!

And who kept singing--
Desperate for your favor?
Who kept dancing--
Hoping you would save her?
Who kept dying,
And this is what you gave her?

Now that I've got your attention at last
Here's the big finish and the you can go

[PHANTOM]
Give me the gun, Meg;
Give me the hurt, and the pain,
And the gun, Meg;
Give me the blame for not seeing
The things that you've done, Meg.
Give me the gun, Meg;
Give me the chance to see you clear
At last...

[MEG]
See me clear at last...

[PHANTOM]
You feel ugly, you feel used,
You feel broke, and you feel bruised,
Ah, but me, I can see
All the beauty underneath

[MEG]
Yes!

[PHANTOM]
You've been robbed of love and pride,
Been ignored and pushed aside,
Even so, I still know
There is beauty underneath.

[MEG]
Yes!

[PHANTOM]
Diamonds never sparkle bright
If they aren't set just right
Beauty sometimes goes unseen
We can't all be like Christine

[MEG]
Christine, Christine...
Always "Christine!"

*MEG SHOOTS CHRISTINE*

[MEG]
No! I didn't mean to!

[GUSTAVE]
Mother, dear! Say something!
Say anything!

[PHANTOM]
Giry! Go get help!
Go!

[GUSTAVE]
Where's Papa? He should be here.
Where's Papa?

[CHRISTINE]
Your father, your real father...

Look with your heart,
And not with your eyes.
The heart understands
A heart never lies.
Believe what it feels,
And trust what it shows.
Look with your heart,
The heart always knows.

Love's not always beautiful
Not at the start
So open your heart,
And close your eyes tight.
Look with your heart,
And when you find love...

[GUSTAVE]
No!

[PHANTOM]
Once upon another time,
Our story had only begun.
I had a taste of joy--
The most I ever knew.
Now there isn't any time,
And somehow our story is done;
And what about the boy?
What am I to do?

[CHRISTINE]
Just love, just live
And give what you can give.
And take my love that you deserve.

[THE PHANTOM & CHRISTINE]
Just love, just live
And give

[PHANTOM]
All that I have
And take what little I deserve.

[CHRISTINE]
Come closer, I beg you.
Closer, still.
Remember, love never dies.
Kiss me one last time.
