On certain nights when the angles are right
And the moon is a slender crescent
Its circle shows in a ghostly glow
Of earthly luminescence

Earthshine, a beacon in the night
I can raise my eyes to earthshine
Earthshine, a jewel out of reach
Form a dream to rise to earthshine

Floating high in the evening sky
I see my faint reflection
Pale facsimile like what others see
When they look in my direction

Earthshine, a beacon in the night
I can raise my eyes to earthshine
Earthshine, stretching out your hand
Full of starlit diamonds, earthshine

Reflected light to another's sight
And the moon tells a lover's story
My borrowed face and my third hand grace
Only reflects your glory

Earthshine, there's a [Incomprehensible]
I can raise my eyes to earthshine
Earthshine, you're still out of reach
Form a dream to rise to earthshine
Form a dream to rise to earthshine
