Please Miss Giry, I Want to Go Back Lyrics

A Romantic Musical (2012 Australian Version)
Love Never Dies the Musical - Please Miss Giry, I Want to Go Back Lyrics

Gustave:
Please Miss Giry
I want to go back, I want my mother

Meg:
The world is hard, the world is mean
It's hard to keep your conscience clean

Gustave: (spoken)
Please, you're hurting me

Meg:
The sea is calm, the sea is grey
It washes everything away

Gustave: (spoken)
I can't swim!

Meg: (spoken)
Don't worry, it's almost over

Meg:
Sink into the deep
Blue, and cool, and kind
Then drift off sleep
Let the past unwind
Leave the hurt behind

Christine: (spoken)
Gustave!

Gustave: (spoken)
Mother!

Meg: (spoken)
No, I'm not done yet

Phantom: (spoken)
Let go of the boy, now!

Meg:
Not another step

Phantom: (spoken)
Let go of him, girl, or I promise you-

Meg:
Not another word
Always wondered how to make you watch
Well, watch me now!

I took a little trip to Coney Island
I took a little trip because of you
I did as mother said, and followed where you led
And tried to do what little I could do

Well here's the way it works on Coney Island
They make you pay for every little crumb
I gave what they would take
I gave it for your sake
Now look at me, and see what I've become

Bathing Beauty on the beach
Bathing Beauty in her dressing room
Bathing Beauty in the dark, on their laps, in their arms, in their beds

Madame Giry:
Meg, my little Meg

Phantom:
What are you saying?

Meg:
Who helped you raise the money
Who helped the permits come through
Who greased the wheels of your high flying deals
Bought you time when the bills came due

Who swayed the local bosses
Carried favor with the press
(Scoffing) No, not her

And who kept singing, desperate for your favor
Who kept dancing, hoping you would save her
Who kept dying, and this is what you gave her

Now that I've got your attention at last
Here's the big finish and then you can go

(Meg pulls out gun and then points it to her head)

Phantom:
Give me the gun, Meg
Give me the hurt, and the pain, and the gun Meg
Give me the blame for not seeing the things that you've done Meg
Give me the gun, Meg
Give me the chance to see you clear at last

Meg:
See me clear at last

Phantom:
You feel ugly, you feel used
You feel broken, you feel bruised
Ah, but me, I can see all the beauty underneath

Meg:
Yes

Phantom:
You've been robbed of love and pride
Been ignored and pushed aside
Even so, I still know there is beauty underneath

Meg:
Yes

Phantom:
Diamonds never sparkle bright
If they aren't set just right
Beauty sometimes goes unseen
We can't all be like Christine

(Phantom royally screws up and Meg gets upset)

Meg:
Christine, Christine, always Christine!

(Meg shoots Christine)

Meg:
No!
I didn't mean to
Mother Dear! Say something, say anything!

Phantom: (holding Christine)
Giry, go get help!
Go!

Gustave: (spoken)
Where's papa, he should be here!
Where's papa?!

Christine: (spoken)
Your father, your real father

Christine:
Look with your heart
And not with your eyes
The heart understands
The heart never lies
Believe what it feels
And trust what it shows
Look with your heart
The heart always knows
Love is not always beautiful
Not at the start

Gustave:
So open your heart

Christine:
And close your eyes tight

Gustave:
Look with your heart

Christine:
And when you find love

(Christine faints and Gustave thinks she's died)

Gustave:
No!

(Gustave runs away)

Phantom:
Once upon another time, our story had only begun
I had a taste of joy, the most I've ever knew
Now there isn't any time, and somehow our story is done
And what about the boy, what am I to do

Christine:
Just love
Just live
And give what you can give
And take the love that you deserve

Phantom + Christine:
Just love
Just live

Phantom:
I'll give all that I have
And take what little I deserve

Christine:
Come closer, I beg you
Closer still
Remember, love never dies
Kiss me one last time

(Phantom and Christibe kiss, Christine dies, Gustave comes back
and accepts the Phantom in all his ugly glory and I'm a crying mess)
