The Music Of The Night Lyrics
The Music Of The Night Song Lyrics
heightens each sensation
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 thoughts away
from cold, unfeeling light -
and listen to the music of the night ...
Close your eyes and surrender to your
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 ...
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 to 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 of the night ...
You alone can make my song take flight -
help me make the music of the - night ...
