THE MOON IS CRYING
______________________________________________

It’s cold in the driveway at this time of night
You’re telling me that you can’t stay
The rain’s pouring down, there’s a white owl in flight
Your Chevy is pulling away

And the moon cries down on me
Hides the tears falling from my eyes
Every drop of rain is a teardrop of pain
Falling softly as the white owl flies
The moon is crying, crying in pain
Tell me baby, oh what is her name
Please tell me that you’ll stop the rain
Just come back and love me again

Your taillights are casting a wet orange glow
The white owl he circles above
Right through the moon-tears, baby, you go
Driving away with your love

Puddles of tears shining glass at my feet
A mirror that shows me your face
I run my foot through it, I feel like a child
And ripple your blue eyes away

And the moon cries down on me
Hides the tears falling from my eyes
Every drop of rain is a teardrop of pain
Falling softly as the white owl flies
The moon is crying, crying in pain
Tell me baby, oh what is her name
Please tell me that you’ll stop the rain
Just come back and love me again

It’s me and the white owl out here alone
And moon-tears have soaked me right through
You haven’t turned back yet, ignoring the moon
The tears we are crying for you

On this moon-filled night in the rain
I wanna hear you whisper my name
I wanna feel you touch me again
Oh baby please come back to me

And the moon cries down on me
Hides the tears falling from my eyes
Every drop of rain is a teardrop of pain
Falling softly as the white owl flies
The moon is crying, crying in pain
Tell me baby, oh what is her name
Please tell me that you’ll stop the rain
Just come back and love me again
