Lyrics

You left the grayness behind
Life was in monochrome
Or were you just colour blind
Lost in the dark at home

Somehow the illness became the cure
And the fever ran high
In the chords of an overture
For the beast and the belle of the ball

Someone is waiting
And he says he knows you well
All those who need him
Have a long sad tale to tell

There is a treaty
And a bargain to renew
Between the devil
And the opera house and you

Love was a curse until now
Held in a heavy hand
Claiming much more than you'd ever allow
Ignoring all you planned

Somehow you learn to embrace the night
With eyes open wide
So whenever you face the light
You'll be ready for your curtain call

Someone is waiting
And he says he knows you well
All those who need him
Have a long sad tale to tell

There is a treaty
And a bargain to renew
Between the devil
And the opera house and you

Majesty reigns on the stage
Floats in a perfume cloud
Voices rejoice in the wonders of the age
You never felt so proud

Somehow you're flying above the sun
Your wings are on fire
But you won't be the only one
To discover how far you must fall

Someone is waiting
And he says he knows you well
All those who need him
Have a long sad tale to tell

There is a treaty
And a bargain to renew
Between the devil
And the opera house and you

Someone is waiting
With a blessing in disguise
Look to the heavens
And a smile you recognise

Will offer comfort
And a bargain to renew
Between the devil
And the opera house and you

Between the devil
And the opera house and you
Between the devil
And the opera house and you
Between the devil
And the opera house and you
Between the devil
And the opera house and you
