Night time sharpens  Heightens each sensation  Darkness wakes
And stirs imagination
 Silently the senses  Abandon their defenses  Helpless to resist the notes I write 
For I compose the music of the night 

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 embelish on your darkest dreams,
 Purge all thoughts of the life you knew before,
 Close your eyes, let your spirit start to soar
And you'll live like 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 cannot fight
The darkness of the music of the night 

Let your mind start a journey through a strange new world,
 leave all thoughts of the world 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
