Poster Til I Hear You Sing

‘Til I Hear You Sing ” is a song from the musical Love Never Dies, the 2010 sequel to the 1986 musical The Phantom of the Opera. It was originally performed by Ramin Karimloo as the Phantom during the London run and was recorded with him for the original London cast album.
The Phantom sings about how he has done next to nothing in the ten years since the events of the first musical took place. He now feels like he cannot be productive in any way until he hears Christine sing again.


‘Til I Hear You Sing

Ten long years
Living a mere facade of life
Ten long years
Wasting my time on smoke and noise

In my mind
I hear melodies pure and unearthly
But I find
I can’t give them a voice without you

My Christine, my Christine
Lost and gone, lost and gone

The day starts
The day ends
Time crawls by
Night steals in pacing the floor

The moments creep
Yet I can’t bear to sleep
‘Til I hear you sing

And weeks pass
And months pass
Seasons fly
Still you don’t walk through the door

And in a haze
I count the silent days
‘Til I hear you sing once more

And sometimes at night time
I dream that you are there
But wake holding nothing
But the empty air

And years come
And years go
Time runs dry
Still I ache down to the core

My broken soul
Can’t be alive and whole
‘Til I hear you sing once more

And music, your music
It teases at my ear
I turn and it fades away
And you’re not here

Let hopes pass
Let dreams pass
Let them die
Without you, what are they for?

I’ll always feel
No more than halfway real
‘Til I hear you sing once more
