一些如夢似幻的歌詞抄錄於下,與格友共賞,引發共鳴。


THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA

In sleep he sang to me.

In dream he came.

That voice which calls to me and speaks my name.

And do I dream again for now I find the phantom of the opera there inside of my mind.

He is there, the phantom of the opera.

Beware the phantom of the opera.


THE MUSIC OF THE NIGHT

Night time sharpens, hightens 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 garnish light of day.

Turn your thoughts away from cold unfeeling light and listen to the music of the night.


MEMORY

Midnight, not a sound from the pavement.

Has the moon lost her memory? She is smiling alone.

In the lamplight the withered leaves collect at my feet and the wind begins to moan.

Burnt out end of smoky days, the stale cold smell of morning.

The street lamp dies.

Another night is over; another day is dawning.

Touch me.Its so easy to leave me all alone with the memory of my days in the sun.

if you touch me youll understand what happiness is.

Look a new day has begun.

這些歌詞的意境詩畫兼具,而且歌曲旋律悠揚,顫動人心,所以唱畢,餘音繚繞,令人終日沉浸在文字與旋律的氛圍。
