Ariana Grande – Moonlight lyrics

[Verse 1]
The sun is setting
And you're right here by my side
And the movie's playing
But we won't be watching tonight
Every look, every touch
Makes me wanna give you my heart
I be crushin' on you, baby
Stay right where you are

[Chorus]
Cause I never knew, I never knew
You could hold moonlight in your hands
'Til the night I held you
You are my moonlight
Moonlight

[Verse 2]
I kiss his fingertips
As I'm wishing he's all mine
He's giving me Elvis
With some James Dean in his eyes
Puts his lips on my neck
Makes me want to give him my body
I be fallin' for you, baby
And I just can't stop

[Chorus]
Cause I never knew, I never knew
You could hold moonlight in your hands
'Til the night I held you
You are my moonlight
Moonlight
Baby, I be fallin'
You are my moonlight
Moonlight

[Verse 3]
He's so bossy
He makes me dance
Tryna sit in the back of his whip
And just cancel my plans
Sweet like candy
But he's such a man
He knows just what it does
When he’s holding me tight
And he calls me "Moonlight" too

    To me, this song shows the beauty of falling in love with someone so easily. "Moonlight," she refers to her lover as. To me, the setting was nighttime and you can only see the light of the moon when it's shining on someone/something. Her focus was him. He was wearing the moonlight, and she viewed him as something beautiful and a work of nature in that aspect. Things get sensual and sexual. "He's giving me Elvis" refers to their sexual relationship, as we all know Elvis was known for his pretty, hip-thrust dancing. "James Dean" in his eyes refers to a mixture of sweet yet dangerous. And throughout this all, the beauty and grace he sees in him throughout the night, there's the beautiful acknowledgement that he sees her the same way.
