Nighttime sharpens, heightens each sensation  Darkness stirs and wakes imagination
 Silently the senses abandon their defenses

Slowly, gently night unfurls its splendor  Grasp it; sense it, tremulous and tender 
Turn your face away from the garish light of day
Turn your thoughts away from cold, unfeeling light
And listen to the music of the night 

 Close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams
 Purge your thoughts of the life you knew before  Close your eyes; let your spirit start to soar
And you'll live as you've never lived before.

Softly, deftly music shall caress you
Hear it, feel it secretly possess you
Open up your mind, let your fantasies unwind
In this darkness which you know you can not fight 
The darkness of the music of the night 

Let your mind start a journey though a strange new world  Leave all thoughts of the life you knew before 
Let your soul take you where you long to be
Only then can you belong to me

Floating, falling sweet intoxication  Touch me, trust me, savor each sensation 
Let the dream begin, let your darker side give in
To the power of the music that I write 
The power of the music of the night 

You alone can make my song take flight 
Help me make the music of the night

Written by: Andrew James Bullimore, Daniel Dubose
