 help me make the mu-sic of the night-------------------|

Here's just the lyrics:

Night time sharpens, heightens each sensation:
darkness stirs and wakes imagination.
Silently the senses abandon their defences.
Slowly, gently, night unfurls its splendour;
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 darkest dreams!
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 caress you.
Hear it, feel it, secretly posseess 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.
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, savour 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.

And finally I'll give you the lyrics with general chords in case you just want to strum along.

Gb        Db                 Gb              Db
Turn your face away from the garish light of day,

          Gb                 Cb      Gb      Db/Ab
turn your thoughts away from cold, unfeeling light

    Gb/Ab         Ab7          Db
and listen to the music of the night.

           B                          E
Close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams!

           A                               Eb
Purge your thoughts of the life you knew before!

Eb7        Ab            Ab7             Db
Close your eyes let your spirit start to soar

           Fm             C             F
and you'll live as you've never lived before.

Db      Ab/Db   Db            Ab/Db
Softly, deftly, music shall caress you.

Db       Ab/Db    Gb       Ab
Hear it, feel it, secretly posseess you.

Gb           Db            Gb          Db
Open up your mind let your fantasies unwind

        Gb                 Cb       Gb     Db/Ab
in this darkness which you know you cannot fight,

    Gb/Ab           Ab7          Db
the darkness of the music of the night.

         B                              E
Let your mind start a journey through a strange, new world,

          A                              Eb
leave all thoughts of the world you knew before.

         Ab            Ab7               Db
Let your soul take you where you long to be!

     Fm       C             F
Only then can you belong to me.

Db        Ab/Db    Db          Ab/Db
Floating, falling, sweet intoxication.

Db        Ab/Db     Gb/Db          Ab/Db
Touch me, trust me, savour each sensation.

Gb              Db            Gb               Db
Let the dream begin, let your darker side give in

       Gb           Cb    Gb     Db/Ab
to the power of the music that I write,

    Gb/Ab        Ab7          Db
the power of the music of the night.

[Ab/db  Db  Ab/Db  Db  Ab/Db  Gb  Ab7  Gb  Db  Gb  Db]

Gb            Cb      Gb        Db/Ab
You alone can make my song take flight,

Gb/Ab            Ab7          Gb  Ebm  Dm  C Db
help me make the music of the night.


Sorry the chords are so hairy and un-guitar friendly, but that's what Webber wrote.  I'd 
using a capo on this song so you don't kill your hands.  Enjoy!
