You and the Night and the Music

Lyrics:Howard Dietz
Music:Arthur Schwartz

The song was publishe 1934.

The song was debuted in the Broadway show Revenge with Music.
The show originally opened on November 28, 1934,
ran for 22 performances, after which it closed.
It then reopened on December 24, 1934,
and ran for an additional 135 performances.
Authors Caryl Brahms and Ned Sherrin, in their book Song by Song:
14 Great Lyric Writers, say that “...the musical yielded two enduring hits
and a profit although it was an artistic failure.”
The song has since become an enduring jazz standard.

Revenge with Music

You and the night and the music
Fill me with flaming desire,
Setting my being completely on fire!

You and the night and the music
Thrill me but will we be one
After the night and the music are done?

Until the pale light of dawning and daylight,
Hearts will be throbbing guitars,
Morning may come without warning,
And take away the stars.

If we must live for the moment,
Love till the moment is through!
After the night and the music die,
Will I have you?

You can never capture it again. "
