This one was really fun to work out and sounds great on flute and piano! "The Point of No Return" is a key song in the Phantom of the Opera and has a distinctive and unusual tone to it - it's a great practice for beginners and intermediates :)

Past all thought of if or when

Silence, silence...

 

^E ^F#  ^D# ^C#
I have come here

^E-^E   ^F#-^F#  ^F# ^D#-^D# ^C#
Hardly   knowing   the   reason   why

^C# ^C# ^D#
In   my   mind

^D#  ^D#-B-B   B-B-A
I've  already  imagined

B   ^C#-^C#  ^C#-^D#-^D#
Our   bodies   entwining,

^D# - B - B       B     B-A
Defenseless and silent...

Past all thought of right or wrong

F        G-F    A-^C
One final question

^D#   ^D#    ^F    ^C#  ^C   Bb
How long should we two wait

^C-^C#  ^D#  ^C
Before we're one?

 

^C       ^C   ^C    ^C   ^C#-F   G#  Bb
When will the blood begin to race

Bb     Bb-Bb     Bb       B      F#-D#    D
The sleeping bud bursts into bloom?

F#          B       B     ^C#   Bb   F#     D-C#    C
When will the flames at last consume us?

 

D         G     F#    G   A   Bb-A
Past the point of no return

G      A-G      B-^D
The final threshold

^F        ^F   ^G    ^D#
The bridge is crossed,

^D    ^C  ^D   ^D#  ^F  ^D
So stand and watch it burn

We've passed the point of no return...
