I don’t think I’ve ever heard this song sung with more passion and beauty then David Cook – two seasons ago on American Idol. Enjoy!
heightens each sensation
Darkness stirs and wakes imagination
Silently the senses abandon their defenses …
Slowly, gently night unfurls its 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 …
Close your eyes and surrender to your
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 …
music shall surround you …
Feel it, hear it,
closing in around 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 …
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 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 . . .
