Music of the Night [From Phantom of the Opera]
by Andrew Lloyd Webber



Nightime sharpens, hightens each sensations
Darkness stirs, and wakes imagination
Silently the senses abandon their defences
Slowly, gently night unfurls its splendour
Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender
Turn your face away from the garish light of day
Turn your thought away from cold, unfeeling light
And listen to the music of the night

Close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams
Purge all thoughts of the life you knew before
Close your eyes, let your spirit start to soar
All 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 that 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 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, savour 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 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
