Twisted Every Way, "The Phantom of the Opera"

"We Have All Been Blind"

Raoul: We have all been blind and yet the answer is staring us in the face.
This could be the chance to ensnare our clever friend.

Firmin and Andre: We're listening. Go on.

Raoul: We shall play his game, perform his work, but remember we hold the ace.
For if Ms. Daae sings, he is certain to attend.

Firmin/Andre: We are certain the doors are barred.
We are certain the police are there.

Raoul: We are certain they're armed.

Firmin/Andre/Raoul: The curtain falls, his reign will end.

"Twisted Every Way"

Christine (speaking): Raoul I'm frightened. Don't make me do this. It scares me.
Don't put me through this ordeal by fire.
He'll take me. I know. We'll be parted forever. He won't let me go.
What I once used to dream, I now dread. If he finds me it won't ever end.
And he'll always be there singing songs in my head.
He'll always be there singing songs in my head.

Raoul: You said yourself he was nothing but a man,
yet while he lives he will haunt us 'til we're dead.

Christine: Twisted every way, what answer can I give?
Am I to risk my life to win the chance to live?
Can I betray the man who once inspired my voice?
Do I become his prey? Do I have any choice?
He kills without a thought. He murders all that's good.
I know I can't refuse, and yet I wish I could.
Oh God, if I agree what horrors wait for me, in this, the Phantom's opera?

Raoul: Christine, Christine don't think that I don't care,
but every hope, and every prayer rests on you now.

"Seal My Fate"

Phantom: Seal my fate tonight. I hate to have to cut the fun short.
But the jokes wearing thin, let the audience in, let my opera begin.


If you know me, you probably know that my favorite movie is The Phantom of the Opera. It's just such a beautiful story. "Twisted Every Way" has to be my favorite song in the whole film. (starts at 1:08. I couldn't find a video that didn't include "We Have All Been Blind") I just love the way she sings it, and the lyrics. It's just so beautiful.

A wonderful movie. I can remember the first time I watched it. I had not desire to see it. Once it started I had planned to leave the room and work on other things. Once it came on all I could do is stare. I suppose I had my mouth hanging open. It was just beautiful. The music really grabs you.
