lyrics for
Moon Is High

rough pass at lyrics

The moon is high
It's not the only one
I'm a lone wolf and I'm prowling
So shine a light on me
Down from your balcony
You'll send me spinning
Or you'll find me howling

I'm under your window
My shades are drawn tight
He's up there with you
He's been up here all night
Do you favor a man when he breaks down and begs
Or a boy with his tail dragging between his legs
I feel vicious and sly
And the moon is high

Now the sky's full of rain
And I'm starting to wane
And I wanna tear a strip from the firmament
I dream you're near
Whisper endearments
If I could take that full moon and make it more permanent

I'm close to your window
Are you tired of him now
Is your light in the gutter
And done all you'll allow
Do you favor a man when he breaks down and pleads
Or a boy with his tail dragging wherever you lead
Now I'm in full cry
And the moon is high

Now I'm in full cry
And I wanna tear a strip from the firmament
Howling for your love
I'm howling for your love
I'm howling for your love
