Oh God, if I agree
What horrors wait for me
In this, the Phantom’s opera?
He told me I will be protected by an angel
An angel of music

Paris Opera House by Michael Maniezzo
"For you were my entire book and I was merely a line in yours." (x)
It is true, Christine!…I am not an Angel, nor a genius, nor a ghost…I am Erik!
"C’est vrai, Christine!… Je ne suis ni ange, ni génie, ni fantôme… Je suis Erik!"
"It’s true, Christine!… I am neither angel, nor genie, nor phantom… I am Erik!”
(This is another de Mattos flub; Erik would never admit to not being a genius. ;D)
See point 3 and 4 though.
Google translate (not that I trust it completely but it’s useful for quickly checking stuff) translates génie into spirit soo take that as you will
But like everything I’ve ever known, you’ll disappear one day…
