The Phantom of the Opera Lyrics: Music of the Night

The Phantom of the Opera: Lyrics for “The Phantom of the Opera”

Night time sharpens,
Heightens each sensation
Darkness stirs and wakes imagination
Silently the senses
Abandon their defenses

Slowly gently, night unfolds
It’s 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 darkest dreams
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

Softly, deftly
Music shall caress you
Hear it, feel it
Secretly possess you

Open up your mind
Let your fantasy’s unwind
In this darkness that you know
You can not find
The darkness of
The music of the night

Let your mind start a journey
Through a strange new world
Leave a box 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
Savory 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
