Let the dream begin, let your darker side give in...

I can-not be-lieve that I have never blogged about this song. This is possibly the only song in the entire galaxy that I have truly utterly suckerly believed each and every word, note, pause and pitch of! Especially special because it's subject is two of my favorite things in this world - music and the night. Many an insomniac night I have lied awake listening to this song imagining being face to face (or maybe mind to mind) with the Phantom. All in all I do believe it has secret powers.

Presenting the Music of the Night:

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

Slowly, gently,
night unfurls its splendor
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 posses you
Open up your mind,
let your fantasies unwind
In this darkness
that you know you cannot fight
The darkness of
the music of the night

Let your mind start a journey through a strange, new world
Leave all thoughts 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,
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
