Tonight the moon is playing tricks again
Yeah, I'm feeling seasick again
The world could just dissolve into a glass of water
I've been good 'cause I know you don't want me to
Do you really want me to be blue as you
It's her daylight that gets me through
We've been here before
Last time you scratched at my door
The moon was naked and cold
I was like a two year old, just wanted more
If you wear that velvet dress (If you wear that velvet dress)
If you wear that velvet dress (If you wear that velvet dress)
Tonight the moon's drawn it's curtains
It's a private show
No one else gonna know I'm wanting

It's all feel-good
Sure it's ok
'Cause I'm always with you

Sunlight, sunlight fills my room
It's sharp and it's clear but nothing at all like the moon, it's ok
The struggle for things not to say
I never listened to you anyway
I got my own hands to pray
If you wear that velvet dress (If you wear that velvet dress)
If you wear that velvet dress (If you wear that velvet dress)
Tonight the moon is a mirror ball
Light flickers from across the hall
Who'll catch the star when it falls

If you wear that velvet dress
