Capo
1st fret
As I'm sure you know, Andrew Lloyd Weber is most likely the most famous writer of
Broadway musicals in the 20th century.  Some of his more famous works include "The
Phantom Of The Opera," "Jesus Christ Superstar," and "Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor
Dreamcoat".  

Here's "Music Of The Night" from Andrew Lloyd Weber's "Phantom Of The Opera"

Capo 1st fret.

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

F Bb F C Dm Em

C       G       C                 G
Slowly, gently, night unfurls its splendour
C         G         F             G
Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender
F              C             F               C
Turn your face away from the garish light of day
          F              Bb    F         C
Turn your face away from cold, unfeeling light
F                 G7           C
And listen to the music of the night

Bb                                   Eb
Close you eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams
          Ab                             D     D7
Purge all thoughts of the world you knew before
           G              G7              C
Close your eyes, let your spirit start to soar
           Em             B           E
And you'll live as you've never lived before

C       G       C           G
Softly, deftly, music shall caress you
C        G        F        G
Hear it, feel it, secretly possess you
F            C              F         C
Open up your mind, let your fantasies unwind
        F                  Bb       F      C
In this darkness which you know you cannot fight
    F               G7           C
The darkness of the music of the night

         Bb                             Eb
Let your mind start a journey through a strange, new world
          Ab                             D
Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before
         G             G7                C
Let your soul take you where you long to be
     Em       B             E
Only then can you belong to me

C         G        C     G
Floating, falling, sweet intoxication
C         G         F           G
Touch me, trust me, savour each sensation
F             C               F           C
Let the dream begin, let your darker side give in
       F            Bb    F      C
To the power of the music that I write
F                G7           C
The power of the music of the night

G C G C G F G7 F C F C

F             Bb      F         C
You alone can make my song take flight
F                G7           F     Dm Dbm B C
Help me make the music of the night
