Floating, falling, sweet intoxication
Touch me, trust me, savour each sensation

The Music of the Night

Nighttime sharpens, heightens each sensation.
Darkness stirs and wakes imagination.
Silently the senses abandon their defences

Slowly, gently, night unfurls its 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 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

The Music of the Night (thephantomoftheopera tarafından)

Married Man

Dreams of summer
Secret smiles between us
Of us meeting
You thought they had seen us
We thus tried explaining
Then it started raining
Then you said I love you girl and then
I’m much too old to fall in love again.


Time was golden
I felt I was falling
Waiting, smiling
Hoping you’d be calling
Loving eyes upon me
Showing me you love me
I woke up beside you once and said
I don’t think I could fall in love again

Married man you were happy and you let me know
As you run up the stairs to reach my door
But I cried every time you had to go
Should have said, don’t come here anymore?

Winter, silence
Shadows on the ceiling
You said, you’re too young to know that feeling?
Then your voice seemed colder
Then you said I told her
I said well she’s older but then
She’s young enough to fall in love again

Though I tried to forget her as you live with me
But you cried when she met you to return
You said no that’s all over but you lied
Married man, are you too old to learn?
Spring can be a very cruel season
Help me, help me
Don’t ask for a reason

Please you must believe me
I want you to leave me
One day if you’re free
But not till then
I’m young enough to fall in love again
I’m young enough to fall in love again.

The original version of, The Music Of The Night, Andrew wrote this for Sarah while he was married to his first wife.

Gerard Butler - The Music of the Night (The Phantom of the Opera movie soundtrack)

One of the most enchanting songs I’ve ever heard and my all time favourite musical. Seen the film countless times - it’s always a pleasure to go back to the magical world it reveals.
