Moon is up
The sun is down
You can't have it both ways round
Ooh babe, won't you listen to me
We are worlds apart, you see
Where are you now
Crying out loud
Where did you go
When I needed you

The sun sinks behind the clouds
And hides his tears without a sound
The moon looks on reflectively
So spare a thought for you and me
Where are you now
Dark are the clouds
Where did you go
When I needed you

The moon is up
The sky is black
I'll sail away and won't come back
The sun goes down
The stars will rise
And dance across
The darkened skies

The sun goes down
The moon comes up

The moon is up
The sun goes down
And you can't have it both ways round
So come on baby and listen to me
'Cause we are worlds apart, you see

The sun goes down
The moon comes up
