Phantom of the opera
Steve Harris

I've been looking so long for you now
You won't get away from my grasp
You've been living so long in hiding
Hiding behind that false mask

You know and I know that
You ain't got that long to last
Your looks and feelings
Are just the remains of your past

Standing in the wings there
You wait for the curtain to fall
Knowing the terror
And holding you have on us all

I know that you're gonna
Scratch me and maim me and maul
You know I'm helpless
From your mesmerising cat call

Keep your distance, walk away don't take his bait
Don't you stray, don't fade away
Watch your step, he's out to get you, come what may
Don't you stray, from the narrow way

I'm running and hiding
In my dreams you're always there
You're the phantom of the opera
You're the devil you're just out to scare

You damaged my mind
And my soul just floats through the air
You haunt me, you taunt me
You torture me back at your lair
