I believe that you were born
during an eclipse
and the stars named you moon child
then you come, you rise in to my sky
you stepped in front of my sky and it makes my whole world dark
and you light up the night
just like the moon
just like the moon you light up the night
and sometimes, sometimes I only get a sliver of ya
but I'm hopin', I'm hopin' for a full moon tonight
laid back and I'm restless in the daytime
and I'm chased by these shadows oh thats haunting me
and then you come with nighttimes woolly blanket
and you wrap me like a child who's been in the rain too long
and you light up the night
just like the moon
just like the moon you light up the night
and sometimes, sometimes I only get a sliver of ya
but I'm hopin', I'm hopin' for a full moon tonight
oh I've chased the moon, ya know I've tried
and each time I've tried, each time I've failed
and each time I get so down on myself
and I can't stand this pace of a snail
while the rest of the world pales all the night
ya know I
know that I can probably never be the same
'cause you light up the night
just like the moon
just like the moon you light up the night
and sometimes, sometimes I only get a sliver of ya
but I'm hopin', I'm hopin' for a full moon tonight
and in the night
I can feel your lovelight shining bright
falling down on me like autumn leaves
tell me how am i supposed to fall asleep
and in the night
I can feel your lovelight shining bright
falling down on me like autumn leaves
tell me how am I supposed to fall asleep
