From the musical, The Hunchback Of Notre Dame


F   Fsus   F   Fsus   F  

        C/F            D#/F  
So many times out there
               A#/F  F    G9/F  
I've watched a happy pair
          A7/F           F    Gm7/C
Of lovers walking in the night
                         F         A#sus2  
They had a kind of glow around them
          A#sus2/D    Am7      A#   F  
It almost looked like heaven's light

           C/F       D#/F
I knew I'd never know
              A#/F   F    G/F  
That warm and loving glow
               A/F              Asus   A   Dm  
Though I might wish with all my might
           Dm/C       A#(add2)   F/A   Gm7    
No face as hideous as my face
                   F(add2)/A  A#(add2)
Was ever meant for heaven's light

    F  A#m/F  F   F7      A#(add2)
But suddenly an angel has smiled at me
    Dm                                 G   C7sus    C7    F  
And kissed my cheek without a trace of fright
          C/F           D#/F  
I dare to dream that she
           A#/F     F    G7/F  
Might even care for me
         A7/F               Em7/A   Am   A# 
And as I ring these bells tonight
                            Am   Dm7   Gm7  
My cold dark tower seems so bright
           C7sus            F5
I swear it must be heaven's light

Beata Maria
    Gm       Dm7b5   D/A   A/G   
You know I'm so much purer than
    A#/F            Asus/E  A7       D
The common, vulgar, weak, licentious crowd

Quia peccavi nimis (That I have sinned)

     Gm         D  Gm   
Then tell me, Maria
Cm            A#/D    D   
Why I see her dancing there
D#                 Asus       A7        D    
Why her smold'ring eyes still scorch my soul

        A/D  D   
Cogitatione (In thought)

  Gm          D   Gm   
I feel her, I see her

The sun caught in raven hair
   D#            A7            D7sus 
Is blazing in me out of all control

                               D7b9    G5
Verbo et opere (In word and deed)

Like fire
This fire in my skin
This burning
Is turning me to sin

It's not my fault
Mea culpa (Through my fault)
I'm not to blame
Mea culpa (Through my fault)
It is the gypsy girl, the witch who sent this flame
Mea maxima culpa (Through my most griveous fault)

It's not my fault
Mea culpa (Through my fault)
If in God's plan
Mea culpa (Through my fault)
            C#maj7        Dm7b5    G/B    Csus
He made the devil so much stronger than a man
Mea maxima culpa (Through my most griveous fault)

   F          C  F   
Protect me, Maria
      A#m            F/C      C/A#   
Don't let this siren cast her spell
      F/A          A#                Dm
Don't let her fire sear my flesh and bone
Destroy Esmeralda
    A#m               F/A   
And let her taste the fires of hell
   Gm7                            A7sus   A7  
Or else let her be mine and mine alone

A5 (8 bars)


Dark fire
Now gypsy, it's your turn
Choose me or
Your pyre
Be mine or you will
