The Music of the Night (Duet with Michael Crawford)

Lyricist: Charles Hart/Richard Stilgoe    Composer: Andrew Lloyd Webber

The music of the night

Night-time sharpens, Heightens each sensation
Darkness stirs and wakes imagination.
Silently the senses abandon their defenses
Helpless to resist the notes I write
For I composed the music of the night

Slowly, gently, Night unfurls its splendor.
Grasp it, sense it tremulous and tender.

Hearing is believing, music is deceiving,
Hard as lightning soft as candle light,
There you trust the music of the night

Close your eyes, For your eyes will only tell the truth
And the truth isnt what you want to see.
In the dark it is easy to pretend
That the truth is what it ought to be

Softly
Deafening
Music shall caress you.
Hear it
Feel it
Secretly posses 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 and let music set you free

Only then can you belong to me

Floating, falling sweet intoxication
Floating, falling, sweet intoxication
Touch me touch me, trust me, savour each sensation
Touch me 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



Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah...
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah...
Ah-ah-ah...

You alone can make my song take flight,
Help me make the music of the
Night
Help me make the music of the night
