Think of me - Phantom of the Opera

I've heard many versions of this song, by David Archuleta and the original by Sarah Brightman; this is one of my favourite songs from the Phantom of the Opera. My favourite take on this song is by Emmy Roseum in the movie version. A song most poignant in the middle of the night, with its yearning and sense of regret. Esp love the cresendo at the end, which helps keep me awake while doing my SoP - who knew writing about yourself can be tt diff?! Thank god for S, JR and friends to keep me going! :)

Think of me - Emmy Roseum

Christine Da ae
Think of me
think of me fondly, when
we've said goodbye
remember me
once in a while, please
promise me you'll try

When you find,
that once again you long
to take your heart back,
and be free
if you ever find a moment,
spare a thought for me

We never said
our love was evergreen
or as unchanging as the sea...
but if you can still remember,
stop and think of me

Think of all the things
we've shared and seen,
don't think about the things
which might have been

Think of me
think of me waking, silent
and resigned...
imagine me, trying too hard to
put you from my mind...

Recall those days,
look back on all those times,
think of the things
we'll never do...
there will never be a day when
I won't think of you

We never said
our love was evergreen
or as unchanging as the sea...
but please promise me,
that sometimes
you will think of me
