Rolling Stones – Moonlight Mile lyrics

(m. jagger/k. richards)

When the wind blows and the rain feels cold
With a head full of snow
With a head full of snow
In the window there's a face you know
Don't the nights pass slow
Don't the nights pass slow

The sound of strangers sending nothing to my mind
Just another mad mad day on the road
I am just living to be lying by your side
But Im just about a moonlight mile on down the road

Made a rag pile of my shiny clothes
Gonna warm my bones
Gonna warm my bones
I got silence on my radio
Let the air waves flow
Let the air waves flow

Oh Im sleeping under strange strange skies
Just another mad mad day on the road
My dreams is fading down the railway line
Im just about a moonlight mile down the road

Im hiding sister and Im dreaming
Im riding down your moonlight mile
Im hiding baby and Im dreaming
Im riding down your moonlight mile
Im riding down you moonlight mile

Let it go now, come on up babe
Yeah, let it go now
Yeah, flow now baby
Yeah move on now yeah

Yeah, Im coming home
Cause, Im just about a moonlight mile on down the road
Down the road, down the road

    Not so much the meaning, but the marvelous orchestration. It builds steadily to a resounding climax, then eases through a calming afterglow into silence. As for the lyrics, I think it is a song expressing a traveler's loneliness on the road, loneliness for the one he loves and has had to leave behind. To ease his pain he has resorted to some mind altering substance to ease the pain. But he still longs for her. It's more about the mood the music set than the lyrics.
