Lyrics To Masquerade / Why So Silent? – Live At The Royal Albert Hall/2011

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 . . .

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 . . .?

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!

To the new chandelier!

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
No, Raoul, please don’t let them see

RAOUL
Well let them see.
It’s an engagement, not a crime.
Christine, what are you afraid of?

CHRISTINE/RAOUL
Let’s not argue (Let’s not argue)
Please pretend (I can only hope)
You will understand in time (I’ll understand in time)

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 chattered chandelier!

PHANTOM
Your chains are still mine,
You will sing for me!
