Sarah Brightman The music of the night Lyrics

Last updated: 07/25/2010 11:00:00 AM

Nighttime 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 deceiving
Hard as lightning, soft as candle light
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
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

I'm an island girl and the first time I went to NY that was the one show I HAD to see even if it meant missing something else. I have always loved the story and I love listeing to Sarah sing the Music of the Night. Thanks for sharing

I've been a fan of Phantom of the Opera (a Phan) for a couple of years now, but now that I've seen the movie, I just love it even more.

The lyrics from the play and the movie must be diffrent, oh well.

Love this song. Love the Phantom.

Love this song!! | Reviewer: Raquel Rivera | 11/20/07

I think that this is the best song in the entire musical. Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman are the PERFECT Phantom and Christine (as is Emmy Rossum and Gerard Butler). I fell in love with this musical the first time i have seen it, and have never stopped singing any of the songs.

The Music of the Night has a place in my heart forever.....the lyrics are so beautiful. The voice of Michael Crawford moves and adds more depth to the number. 5 stars from me :)
