This is a classic duet from Andrew Lloyd Webber's 1986 musical Phantom of the Opera. It takes place on the rooftop of the Paris Opera House when Christine flees there in terror of the Phantom, and her childhood friend Raoul, who is very much in love with Christine, comforts her and promises to protect her.

Other artists have covered this song, in both solo and duet versions, including Barbra Streisand, The Shadows (in an instrumental version), and Elaine Paige.

LYRICS

RAOUL
No more talk of darkness,
Forget these wide-eyed fears.
I'm here, nothing can harm you -
my words will warm and calm you.

Let me be your freedom,
let daylight dry your tears.
I'm here, with you, beside you,
to guard you and to guide you

CHRISTINE
Say you love me every waking moment,
turn my head with talk of summertime
Say you need me with you, now and always
promise me that all you say is true -
that's all I ask of you

RAOUL
Let me be your shelter,
let me be your light.
You're safe: No-one will find you
your fears are far behind you

CHRISTINE
All I want is freedom,
a world with no more night
and you always beside me
to hold me and to hide me

RAOUL
Then say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime
Iet me lead you from your solitude
Say you need me with you here, beside you
anywhere you go, let me go too -
Christine, that's all I ask of you

CHRISTINE
Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime
say the word and I will follow you

BOTH
Share each day with me, each night, each morning

CHRISTINE
Say you love me

RAOUL
You know I do

BOTH
Love me - that's all I ask of you

Anywhere you go let me go too
Love me - that's all I ask of you
