To Good To Be True

You're just too good to be true can't take my eyes off of you
You'd be like heaven to touch I wanna hold you so much

She was so beautiful, her dark ringlets cascading down her shoulders, her deep blue smiling eyes and her soft pink lips, utter perfection. Erik couldn't take his eyes off her as she stood on the stage talking and laughing with the other ballet rats. Her laughter tinkled up to the rafters where he sat motionless but for his eyes following her every movements. Oh how wonderful it would be to touch her, to hold her, to love her and, dare he dream it, kiss her. Heaven.

At long last love has arrived and I thank God I'm alive
You're just too good to be true can't take my eyes off of you

But he didn't have to dream any longer because she was his and she loved him. She held him, caressed his monstrous face and even kissed the marred flesh, allowing him to press his malformed lips to hers, allowing his hands to touch her even though she is an angel and he but a lowly monster, allowing him everything he had ever dreamed but never thought he could possibly have. He still believes she's too good to be true and that one day she will just vanish and it would have all been a wonderful dream.

Pardon the way that I stare is nothing else to compare
The sight of you leaves me weak there are no words left to speak

But if you feel like I feel please let me know that it's real
You're just too good to be true can't take my eyes off of you

Christine is always there though to tell him it isn't a dream, that it is real and that he, Erik, is not a monster and that he is loved and always will be and Erik believes it and knows that for once in his miserable life he can be happy.

The End.

A/N I have another songfic in mind with the same song but a modern universe, slightly more humorous fic. That might be published later if people want me to write it and if my brain can get the words to paper LOL.
