Whenever I close my eyes, I see your reflection.
Whenever silence sets in, I hear your voice.
You are a vision that never departs
but forever lingers in my mind...
May 9, 1999
Music of the Night from the Phantom of the Opera Webber Andrew Lloyd
C G Night time sharpens F G heightens each sensation C G Darkness wakes F G and stirs imagination F C Silently the senses F C abandon their defences F Bb Helpless to resist C the notes I write G For I compose F G C the music of the night...
Slowly, gently night unfurls its splendour. Grasp it, sense it - tremulous and tender Hearing is believing music is deceiving Hard as lightning soft as candlelight dare you trust the music of the night...
Bb Close your eyes Eb for your eyes will only tell the truth Ab And the truth D isn't what you want to see G In the dark C it is easy to pretend G that the truth B7 E is what it ought to be.
Softly, deftly music shall caress you... Hear 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 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! 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...
This song is lovingly dedicated to Elaine.
