Music of the Night

A piano solo performed by me!

Sorry for the piano being out of tune!  Getting it tuned is on my Christmas wishlist so we'll see what happens.

Also, if you're wondering why my fingerings are so terrible, it's because I was never formally trained.  Okay, I took like two weeks worth of lessons in the fourth grade, but all I learned to do was scales.

This video may not appear on mobile devices--sorry!!

Also, I now have a YouTube channel (in an effort to fix the mobile device problem) so please head over there and subscribe if you're interested in receiving my videos.  Enjoy!!

Lyrics
Night time sharpens, heightens each sensation
Darkness wakes and stirs imagination
Silently the senses abandon their defenses
Helpless to resist the notes I write
For I compose the music of the night

Slowly, gently night unfurls it's splendor
Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender
Hearing is believing, music is deceiving
Hard as lightening, soft as candlelight
Dare you trust the music of the night

Close your eyes for your eyes will only tell the truth
and the truth isn't what you want to see
In the dark it is easy to pretend
That the truth is what it ought to be

Softly, deftly, music shall caress you
hear it, fear it, secretly possess you
Open up your mind, let your fantasies unwind
this darkness which you know you cannot fight
The darkness of the music of the night

Close your eyes, start a journey to a strange new world
Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before
Close your eyes and let music set you free
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 the song take flight
Help me make the music of the night
