Differences between Raoul and Erik singing “All I Ask of You”

When Raoul sings it, he’s literally saying to Christine, “I know you’re going through a rough time, but please remember that you don’t have to always be by my side and make sure I’m always okay through this. As long as I know you love me, everything will turn out alright and I’ll try my best to be by your side.”

When Erik sings it, he’s saying, “Christine, you need to love me. All I’m asking is for you to love me. Is that so hard? Love me, Christine. I need you, and I deserve you.”

The differences is love and posession. While Erik is forcing Christine to love him, Raoul is telling Christine that she doesn’t need to give him affection and love all the time, she just needs to care for him.

I am the twentieth century. I am the ragtime and the tango; sans-serif, clean geometry. I am the virgin’s-hair whip and the cunningly detailed shackles of decadent passion. I am every lonely railway station in every capital of Europe. I am the Street, the fanciless buildings of government. the cafe-dansant, the clockwork figure, the jazz saxophone, the tourist-lady’s hairpiece, the fairy’s rubber breasts, the travelling clock which always tells the wrong time and chimes in different keys. I am the dead palm tree, the Negro’s dancing pumps, the dried fountain after tourist season. I am all the appurtenances of night.

what does angst mean?
like a compression of the heart, not tears or whimpers but the heavy suffocating feeling that clogs everything up and kind of changes your perspective on life, at least for a second. angst is not the half-empty glass but the full glass, with water slowly evaporating, inevitably, certainly, and the knowledge that one day it will be completely empty not because someone drank it or because of some calamity but because that’s how all things are. disappearing.
