Black Moonlight Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Lost in the shuffle, I've drifted an' strayed
Bruised by the city, bewildered, betrayed
With a heart heavy laden with faltering strides
I have come to the bridge, to the line that divides!
Verse 2
What am I doing up here in a daze
As I gaze at the cold river bed?
Why do I ask myself, "Shall I go back
when I seem to be going ahead?"
Verse 3
To black moonlight!
Where everything reflects your colour
Darkness that is endless.
nights that leave me friendless . . . blue!
Verse 4
Black moonlight!
You make the lights of Harlem duller
Just like me you're faded, jaded and degraded . . . too!
Why must you send . . .
ebony moonbeams, depressing, distressing . . .
like shadows of love that are gone?
Verse 5
Where will it end?
Will it spread on to the starlight, the sunlight
and darken each promise of dawn?
Verse 6
Black moonlight!
I've lost all power to resist you
Madly, I await you, even though I hate you
Black, black moonlight!
