Andrew Lloyd Webber – Music Of The Night lyrics

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 that 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.

    I think he is referring to the fact that, in the dark, you can use your other senses to discover, feel and think things. If christine closed her eyes, and didn't care what he looked like, he's hoping that somehow, she would love him. He longs for a feeling of acceptance, and he wants to know if its possible to love him if she ignores his looks, because from his life, he knows no one would accept him otherwise. He seems to be saying that everything looks more beautiful when you can't see it, and wants christine to join him in the dark, live with him and accept him, and make his songs 'take flight'.

    This song is less about making love and more about making music. He wants christine because she is beautiful and has a beautiful voice- he tells her "i am the voice, you are the face". He knows in the darkness (night) they can make music together and there no one will judge him for his disfigurement, he doesn't want christine to judge him by his looks either. Such a sad story, poor phantom! ; _;.

    Music of the night to me means compasion greatness it mean it or shall I say he wants loyalty and he thinks hes been patraded so no he wants reveng but reveng should not have been the way but overall it means he wants love and he feels empty without love so this means with or without he needs to be nurtured and that's what this song to me is explaining in a way we could not imagine so listen closely in you could understand what this is trying to sh you this song means help honor me and at least love me, but you didn't so I want reveng.
