The song has been described as “haunting” and “seductive”, and is one of the most popular songs from The Phantom of the Opera.

The Lyrics

The Opening

Christine Daaé, a young girl in 19th century Paris, is taken to the Opéra Populaire by her father. She is captivated by the performance of the “Angel of Music”, whom her father says is the spirit of music itself. When her father dies, Christine goes to live with her aunt who forbids her from ever going back to the opera house.

The First Verse

‘Angel of music,
My guardian dear,
How can I ever show you
The gratitude I feel?
You have brought me back to life,
You have given me back my soul.
I was lost until you came,
And showed me the way.

I thank you, angel of music,
For all that you’ve done for me.
I will never forget you,
You will always be in my heart.’

The Chorus

The lyrics to ‘Angel of Music’ from ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ are:

“In sleep he sang to me, in dreams he came
That voice which calls to me and speaks my name
And do I dream again for now I find
The Phantom of the Opera is there
Inside my mind”

The Second Verse

Angel of music,
My guardian angel,
Teach me to sing,
And I will try to be as good as you.

I have often dreamed,
Of a world where I could be,
All that I am meant to be.
And though my heart may break,
I know that I must go on.
Angel of music, please stay with me!

The Third Verse

I am the spirit of music,
The guardian of all that is good.
I know your secret yearnings,
Your hopes and your fears.
I will be with you always,
The angel of music.

The Fourth Verse

Fourth Verse:

You are music,
You are the voice of my dreams,
I am but a composer,
I merely transcribe what I see,
And what I hear inside of me.

The Fifth Verse

“Sing once again with me
Our strange duet
My power over you
Grows stronger yet
And though you turn from me
To glance behind
The phantom of the opera is there
Inside your mind”

The Sixth Verse

You are music
The voice of music
Far-off and charming
The sound of music
Till dawn is warning
And then you fade away
Your notes are trembling
Your chords are gray
You are music
The spirit of music
And soon you will be gone

The Seventh Verse

“But, Mother, I am not afraid,”
I answered firmly. “He is here, in my own room,
and will do me no harm. I have asked him to teach me
to sing like he does.”
For a moment, she did not reply, and I thought
I saw a ghost of a smile flit across her face.
“Very well,” she said at last. “If it is your wish, I will not interfere.
But this man is not to be trusted, Christine. He is dangerous.”


Now you know the lyrics to ‘Angel of Music’ from ‘The Phantom of the Opera’, one of the most popular songs from the musical. This number is sung by the Phantom to Christine, as he tries to lure her into his underground lair. It’s a beautiful and haunting melody that has stayed with fans long after they’ve seen the show.
