Nighttime 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.

Softly, deftly, night unfurls it's splendor
Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender
Hearing is believing,
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.

Slowly, gently, music shall caress you
Fear 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.

Close your eyes, and surrender to your darkest dreams,
Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before.
Close your eyes and let music set you FREE!!!
...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 ni------gh----t.

rachel (hirumayoichis) "who would have the all to send this?
someone with a purille (sp?) brain.
these are both signed O.G., who the hell is he?

message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

This is really not amusing, he's abusing our position, in addition he wants money, he's a funny apparition, and it's something (Can't remember) that he's clearly quite insane!
That was probably wrong, it was from memory.

message 28: by Danni (new)

Danni | 10 comments The first time I heard the music of the night I was 15 in a beginning choir class for women. The teacher let us sing music of the night and none of us were trained for it. It would have been beautiful but we slaughtered it at a concert. It ended up being pretty embarrasing. I was fasinated with the words and friends started showing me the other songs. I was hooked

message 29: by Danni (new)

Danni | 10 comments I have a medly for the piano that is the first half of music of the night and then it goes into all I ask of you and then back into music of the night. I was supposed to be playing the piano for a talent show and the song I was playing wasn't working so I put these two songs together. ( It goes back into music of the night like the phantom does at the end of all I ask of you.) The people that I played for loved it.

Erica  (ericamariej) This song is so beautiful. It definitely tells us how much he cares for her. As much of a Raoul fan I am, I think it would have been nice to do a side story where she ended up with Erik.
