The moon is high
It's not the only one
I'm alone and I'm traveling
So shine a light on me
Down through the balcony
You'll send me spinning
Or you'll find me howling

I'm under your window
My shades are drawn tight
He's up there with you
He's been up here all night

Do you favor a man when he breaks down and begs
Or a boy with his tail dragging between his legs
I feel vicious inside
And the moon is high

Now the sky is full of rain
And I'm starting to weigh
And want to strip from the fundaments
I dream you're near whispering endearments
If I could take that full moon
And make it more permanent

I'm close to your window
Are you tired of it now
Is your light in the gutter
And done all you're allowed

Do you favor a man when he breaks down and pleads
Or a boy with his tail dragging wherever you leave
Now I'm in full cry
And the moon is high

Now I'm in full cry
And I want to tear a strip from the fundament

Howling for your love
Howling for your love
Howling for your love
