lyrics

MOONLIGHT
copyright 2007 john common music

you hear it on the radio
late at night when you sleep
dreaming of your one true love
floating toward you on a troubled sea
waiting for you every night
the lover who would never leave
heaven falling from the sky
and it's a lie you want to believe

impossible but it's true
the lover from your dreams
landed on your window sill
and made it possible to believe
closer, closer still but don't ever tell a soul
studying her cotton dress
and how it slips down to the floor

everybody knows
the pain of a lonely man
everybody knows
you can’t hold moonlight in your hands

chosen and you don't know why
waking from your secret sleep
back into this ugly life
where secrets are hidden deep
all the people who love to hate
all the people who love to kill
all the people who just want love
all the people who never will

everybody knows
the pain of a lonely man
everybody knows
the pain…
everybody knows
