What happened you say?

To the one with the mask

Who lived in the shadows

And had a dark past

---

Who loved her beauty

Her voice and her song

Who wished her to be with him

Yet now she is gone

---

Let me tell you the tale

Of after the fact

Of the Phantom who killed

Whose face was abstract

---

He loved her, oh yes

But she could not live with he

Now I'm changing the play

For both mine and his glee

---

When Christine had gone with her lover

And sorrow of Phantom's proved true

He found a world might love him

So to the world he flew

---

In the darkness of night

He sang a song without meaning

With love for the one

Whose beauty he was now dreaming

---

No song did she sing

Her soul carried a trouble

For her past was weighed also

Seemed memories of rubble

---

One night did she sit

Moonlit in the darkness

Her gold hair in tangles

Her heart in distress

---

Then he sang her a song

Of beauty, of devotion

And took hold of her heart

Said that she was his motion

---

In the end she found love

Where once was a scar

And he found a lover

Who cared not if his face was bizarre

---

They vowed then words of agreement

To love and to care

For ever and always

In happiness or despair

---

So this be the true tale of that Phantom

Who looked for acceptance

And found hate

Despite his brilliance

---

But worry no longer

For he now has found what he sought

A person to love

And for looks cares not

---

Once a phantom now a man

Once a killer now a lover

Once in hiding now in happiness

Once deceiver now in truth he hover
