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

*Softly*, gently night unfurls it's 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

Let your mind start a journey through a strange new world
Leave all thoughts of the world 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, savor each sensation
Let the dream begin, let your darkest side give in
To the power of the music that I write
The power of the music of the night, of the night

You alone can make my song take flight
Help me make the music of the night

    i got goosebumps when he sang this. he'd make a good phantom, too, i think...

    i think the song is about a guy who'se in love with a girl and he's trying to tell her to forget all those who came in her life before him, and he's doing it in a very seductive(?), yet sophisticated and romantic way.
    (that's a lot to put up with)
