Music Of The Night (The Phantom Of The Opera) Lyrics by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Music Of The Night (The Phantom Of The Opera) by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Darkness wakes and stirs imagination
Silently the senses abandon their defences
helpless to resist the notes I write
for I compose the music of the night
Slowly, gently, night unfurls its splendour
Grasp it, sense it - tremulous and tender
feeling is believeing
music is decieving
hard as lightning, soft as candlelight
dare you trust the music of the night
close your eyes for your eyes will only tell the truth
and the truth isn't what you want to see
in the dark it is easy to pretend
that the truth is what it ought to be
and listen to the music of the night
music shall carress you
hear it, feel it, secretly posess 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
close your eyes, start a journey
through a strange, new world!
Leave all thoughts
of the world you knew before
close your eyes, let the music set you free
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
