Night time 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…

Slowly, gently, night unfurls its splendour,
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.

Softly, deftly, music shall caress you,
Fear 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 to a strange new world,
Leave all thoughts of the world you knew you 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 night…

-Phantom of the Opera (Music of the Night)

I’m convinced that the Phantom Highlights CD has different lyrics than the full CD, so I’m transcribing them both, to compare.
