Catcher in the Rye


The Music of the Night

By Andrew Lloyd Webber

Night time sharpens, heightens each sensation
Darkness stirs and wakes imagination
Silently the senses abandon their defenses.

Slowly, 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 the cold, unfeeling light
And listen to the music of the night.

Close your eyes and surrender to your darkest needs
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 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 find
The darkness of the music of the night.

Let your mind start a journey to a strange new world
Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before
Let your soul take you where you love 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

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