The show The Phantom of the Opera contains a number called Angel of Music, sung by the characters Christine and Meg. In the original Phantom Sarah Brightman played and sang the role of Christine, and thus she sang part of Angel of me; Meg was played by Janet Devenish. Below follow the lyrics of this version.


Sarah Brightman -- Angel of music

Phantom's voice
Bravi, bravi, bravissimi ...
Where in the world have you been hiding?
Really, you were perfect!
I only wish I knew your secret!
Who is this new tutor?
Father once spoke of an angel,
I used to dream he'd appear.
Now as I sing I can sense him,
And I know he's here.
Here in this room he calls me softly.
Somewhere inside, hiding.
Somehow I know he's always with me,
He -- the unseen genuis.
Christine, you must have been dreaming,
Stories like that can't come true.
Christine, you're talking in riddles,
And it's not like you.
Angel of Music!
Guide and guardian!
Grant to me your glory!
Who is this angel?
This ...
Angel of Music!
Hide no longer!
Secret and strange angel.
He's with me, even now ...
Your hands are cold ...
All around me ...
Your face, Christine, it's white ...
It frightens me ...
Don't be frightend ...
