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 it's Splendor
Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender
Hearing is believing, music is deceiving
Hard as lightening, soft as candlelight.
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, savor 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.

    Its obvious what this song is about... Its about the phantoms need for a partner... A lover but most importantly a friend to understand him and his music. Christine is that person

    This song is about the phantom wanting to give Christine his love. He is afraid that she won't because of his appearance, but in the dark he can be beautiful for her through his music. He is saying that in the dark he can hide behind his music and make her love him.

    No I think even though Christine does not love the phantom she understands him and cares about him, It's society that loathes him; at leas the phantom thinks society as a whole loathes him. And this is a way of taking Christine with him out of society, but he will have companionship and maybe even he dreams will turn to love, without a society that judges him.

    This song is about giving into your darker side and darker fantasies. The only way they can be together is if she leaves behind her innocence and gives into his darker ways. Hes trying to seduce her with the beauty of darkness.

    It is about true love the sharing of life... Submission and domination s&m... Pweor and control... Giving and taking... Call it what you will... It's in all of us
