Now available as printSlowly, 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 ...
Phantom Of The Opera - Music of the NightThis is a collab with =JinDevilKazama

If there is ever a more powerful song than this.. oh.. anyway, this is really one of the most stunning songs with supreme lyrics. And I most say when I first heard it song years ago in English class, I really wondered what.. I did not liked it.. but I needed to grow and listen it again, see the lyrics to find the deep and moving meaning of it.
It's not easy to live up for all the expectation we have in life.. from ourselves, from others.. and sometimes I just feel when curtains are on and light turn in and it is all dark outside.. then I really get my creativity - I used to write so much when I was younger and all the best things I wrote in darkness, sitting alone in room, having candlelight around - it just creates that amazing atmosphere.. it opens your mind and lets you forget the limitations you have.. You find the freedom, the feeling you would not usually have.. Find courage to express what you wish.. not care what you usually would think is correct..
And I just love the way that piece of music makes me feel. The story it tells.. I think you all know what the musical is about.. but to think that tortured soul.. finding his piece and his muse in the night.. we all can feel the same - in some ways we are all tortured.. but the Phantom.. a really powerful char.. weird, I never liked the handsome boy in the musical.. always the phantom.. maybe because his songs were more powerful.. but.. something on that poor soul.. something that makes me feel that all he wanted was to create and be accepted by world and it is just so familiar.. I wanted to be accepted by world so long turning my school years.. but kids just can be so mean.. but I survived them.. I found my hiding place in my writings first, then in art.. it is a place where I can feel I am complete.. a place where I belong..Open up your mind, let your fantasies unwind...dani-stock
