    Starry Night

    Starry Night

    (c) 2010, Serina Jung

    Starry night a twinkling

    diamond sky way up high

    sleepy time, a sprinkling

    of pretty stars in the sky

    way up, way up on the wings of a sigh

    starlight, so bright

    every dream there can fly

    on the wings of a sigh every dream there will fly

  • 02:07 Story Lyrics
    Lift Your Voice

    Lift Your Voice

    (c) 2010, Serina Jung

    Lift your voice, oh little bird
    raise it high you will be heard
    fly up to the highest branch
    sing your song throughout the land
    let the world know you are here
    you are here
    when you fly your spirit flies
    fill your heart, don't question why
    let the clouds below you be
    reminders that you're truly free
    I'll be with you all the way
    all the way
    lift your voice, oh little bird
    raise it high you will be heard in this world

    Moonlight Casts A Shadow

    Moonlight Casts a Shadow

    (c) 2010, Serina Jung

    Moonlight casts a shadow did you know?
    I saw it, I stood in it
    I had been feeling like I was in the dark
    suddenly, I was bathed in silver light
    I watched the moon glide slowly across the sky
    I followed it, I traced its path
    I had always thought that only the sun could shed such light
    how I yearned to be able to touch it
    hours on my doorstep in my spotlight,
    I lived it, I breathed it in and I discovered
    I was not in the dark
    moonlight casts a shadow
    moonlight casts a shadow
    mine is with me tonight
    yeah, mine is with me, tonight

    Lullaby Song

    Lullaby Song

    (c) 2010 Serina Jung

    Little songbird perched on a branch
    test your wings against the wind
    one day you'll let go, and you will fly
    then you'll know the strength in them
    never you worry this tree will be here
    whenever you need to fly home
    but for the moment just close your eyes
    I'll sing you this lullaby song
    I'll sing you this lullaby song
    little songbird perched in your tree
    dare your wings to touch the sky
    your heart is willing, your body is small
    but one day you will fly, you will fly
    never you worry this tree will be here
    whenever you need to fly home
    but for the moment just close your eyes
    I'll sing you this lullaby song
    I'll sing you this lullaby song
    I'll sing you this lullaby song
    I'll sing you this lullaby song

    In My Garden

    In My Garden

    (c) 2010, Serina Jung

    In my garden I planted a seed
    I planted a seed to see if it would grow
    next thing I knew over time it grew into a flower
    of my very own
    in my garden everything grows
    in my garden I planted a smile
    I planted a smile to see if it would grow
    next thing I knew over time it grew into laughter
    of my very own
    in my garden everything grows
    in my garden I planted a melody
    I planted a melody to see if it would grow
    next thing I knew over time it grew into a song
    of my very own
    in my garden everything grows
    in my garden everything grows

    Summer In My Heart

    Summer In My Heart

    (c) 2010, Serina Jung

    It's summer in my heart
    whenever I am close to you
    I sing with the birds all day
    at night I howl at the moon
    joyful I can be on the windiest day
    in rain, under grayest skies
    no matter what all I know is I can trust
    it's summer in my heart all the time

    Willow

    hush now, Willow don't you sigh

    beautiful baby sleep, now, sleep

    to the beat of your heart

    you are safe Ill keep you warm
    rest your head close your eyes

    when you awaken I'll be here

    Colors

    Colors

    (c) 2010 Serina Jung

    Blue skies with white clouds
    grey rooftops glistening
    silvery raindrops so softly are falling
    brown cat-tails leaning
    green treetops swaying
    red-breasted robins
    blue ocean waves waving
    color me with the colors of the world
    color me with the colors of the world
    gorgeous pink roses
    in warm golden sunlight
    the blackness of night
    kissed by buttery starlight
    fields of wild flowers of purple and saffron
    sepia sunsets
    a honey horizon
    color me with the colors of the world
    color me with the colors of the world

    Orange Moon

    Orange Moon

    (c) 2010, Serina Jung

    There’s an orange moon rising tonight

    floating, out of reach what a beautiful sight

    peaceful slumber comes like gentle rain

    to kiss your brow and the window pane

     

    falling asleep

    waltzing with the stars

    sailing away with the moon

    under this great sky

    know that you’re all right

    I’ll sail with you

     

    see the orange moon shine its golden light

    a steady friend on a long, dark night

     

    falling asleep

    waltzing with the stars

    sailing away with the moon

    under this great sky

    know that you’re all right

    I’ll sail with you, I’ll sail with you

    les beaux dodos

    buona notte, amore mio, buona notte

NOTES
It's true, no babies fall out of trees on this album.

With two independent releases already behind her, Serina Jung’s third album, the newly released STARRY NIGHT: Lullabies For Little Ones, showcases her songwriting talents in a new light. Serina was inspired to write a children’s album after becoming a new mother, when she discovered that so many classic lullabies have a dark underlying tone. A believer in positive thought, Serina also believes …

    If I Want To

    If I Want To

    (c) 2003, Serina Jung

    don't tell me what to do

    I'm gonna love you if I want to

    don't tell me how to feel

    when it concerns you

    no need to explain what I've come to know

    a heartbeat too late

    I don't need to be told what to do

    I'm gonna love you if I want to

     

    don't tell me what to say

    I'm gonna love you anyway

    don't tell me how to be

    'cuz in the end I"ll be okay

     

    come a little closer

    come, dance with me this last time

    don't say a word, not another word

     

    don't tell me what to say

    I'm gonna love you anyway

    don't tell me what to do

    I'm gonna love you if I want to

    A Good Life (signs of Beauty)

    It's A Good Life (Signs of Beauty)

    (c) 2003, Serina Jung

     

    when you saw the world's ugliness

    you put a shackle on your heart

    you covered your ears, you closed your eyes

    but beauty does exist

    it is a flower in the desert

    no less worthy for being difficult to find

     

    it's a good life -sometimes it's hard to believe

    it's a good life - look around you'll see signs of beauty

     

    unfair expectations and unfulfilled wishes

    deflate your spirit every time you sigh

    but even a diamond must bide its time for brilliance

    until, in the light, it cannot be denied

     

    it's a good life -sometimes it's hard to believe

    it's a good life - look around you'll see signs of beauty

     

    in a simple act of kindness from a stranger

    a sincere "hello, how are you?" from your neighbor

    or the sensitivity to be able to cry

    and a sun that has never, ever failed to rise

     

    remember, on your journey

    to take notice of the flowers

    they define what it means to be alive

  • 02:55 Story Lyrics
    Waiting For a Letter

    Waiting For A Letter

    (c) 2003, Serina Jung

     

    Waiting for a letter

    a promise of forever

    in an envelope

    waiting for a letter

    each passing day reigns heavier

    on my suspended world

    but I'm a dauntless girl

     

    I'll learn of my love's return

    tender words will waltz off the page

    a bouquet of light, in darkness, it will be

    when my lover's letter comes

    when my lover's letter comes

     

    waiting for a letter

    it's May, no it's November

    even Cupid sighs

    but when it arrives

     

    I'll learn of my love's return

    tender words will waltz off the page

    a bouquet of light, in darkness, it will be

    when my lover's letter comes

    when my lover's letter comes

     

    waiting for a letter

    a promise of forever

    Living On the Edge

    Living On The Edge

    (c) 2003, Serina Jung

     

    Tag, Band-Aids and bicycles

    my, how the years have flown

    he tries to grasp a piece of the past

    to claim it as something he owns

     

    he asks himself, what is success?

    how much of it can I afford?

    if the end of a day brings nothing but pay

    it may not be worth suffering for

     

    living on the edge, living on the edge

    what if I die and leave nothing

    to be remembered by?

    living on the edge, living on the edge

    what if my pulse is the only reason I'm alive?

     

    in the midst of his private earthquake

    he quietly starts to dress

    he says, I still know how to patch all the holes

    so there may be some hope for me yet

     

    living on the edge, living on the edge

    what if God is a theory borne of a desperate mind?

    living on the edge, living on the edge

    what if, all this time, I've been praying

    to an empty sky?

    Jenny

    Jenny

    (c) 2003, Serina Jung

    Jenny turned fifteen yesterday

    exactly six months and four days

    since she left the house

    'cause mamma's boyfriend came to stay

    she took a west-bound bus to get lost

    somewhere in L.A.

    Jenny has a waiting job in a late-night pub

    her I.D. says she is of age

    and though the photograph doesn't look like her

    they'd never say a thing

    'cause so many girls come and go this way

     

    where do angels go

    when their wings and halos are broken?

    where do angels go

    if they can't fly home?

     

    Jenny says she's doing fine

    but she's tired and worried all the time

    she feels her belly move as she picks up her tip

    and counts out a buck in dimes

    she'd give anything to rush home to her mamma's side  

     

    where do angels go

    when their wings and halos are broken?

    where do angels go

    if they can't fly home?

     

    Jenny doesn't give her boy a name

    she tells the nurse to take him away

    then she cries herself to sleep

    and prays her little sister is okay

    so many girls come and go this way

    yeah, so many girls come and go this way

     

    where do angels go

    when their wings and halos are broken?

    where do angels go

    if they can't fly home?

    Fear

    Fear

    (c) 2003, Serina Jung

    Fear,

    when did you appear?

    when I did I invite your darkness

    into my thoughts?

    Love,

    it scares me more than death itself

    if I let go will I fall, and fall

    and fall?

     

    I have yet to outrun the wind

    I have yet to remove

    plasters from old wounds

    'cause with every breath I take

    I inhale you, Fear

     

    chance,

    may have walked with me

    more than once

    but you were with me

    no, you would not leave my side

    and dreams,

    they used to come to me with fine ideas

    but all the gifts they bore

    were left untouched, untried

     

    I have yet to outrun the wind

    I have yet to remove

    plasters from old wounds

    I have yet to outrun the wind

    I have yet to taste freedom

    'cause with every breath I take

    I inhale you, Fear

    Crash! Boom!

    Crash! Boom!

    (c) 2003, Serina Jung

    what falls? a bomb falls

    like I fell for you - crash! boom!

    it always feels like love 'till it falls apart

    the bits and pieces, they can fall hard

     

    what sways? a tree sways

    before it falls, or snaps to give way

    like me for you, 'cuz you love me

    like a pendulum, like a trapeze

     

    on the one hand, I could ball myself up like tissue

    and snuggle into a cup

    on the top shelf of a cabinet, way up in an attic

    to live out my days in my loveless cocoon

    on the other hand, there's you

     

    crash! boom!

    crash!boom!

     

    what gives? my heart gives

    it gives so much it's caving in

    but I can't help myself, it's a shameless ride

    and I've lost my hat, but I'm the giving kind

     

    crash! boom! ... crash! boom!

    crash! boom! ... crash! boom!

     

    what breaks? my heart breaks

    like broken silence, it can't be fixed

    I'm broken now, I've broken down

    I'm breaking up, baby, crash! boom!

     

    crash! boom! ... crash! boom!

    crash! boom! ... crash! boom!

    Something to Hold On To

    Something To Hold On To

    (c) 2003, Serina Jung

     

    It's a great day to be alive, don't you agree?

    the sun is shining and the air is candy

    what's it like over there where you are?

    have you thought about me lately at all?

     

    I don't know why I call you as often as I do

    when everything I know about you tells me not to

    but then you speak to me so gentle

    you give me something to hold on to

     

    no, nothing's new, in fact nothing has changed

    I go to work, come home and repeat

    repeat day after day

    my weeks resemble barren desert dunes

    I'm stranded without hope of rescue

     

    I don't know why I call you as often as I do

    when everything I know about you tells me not to

    but then you speak to me so gentle

    you give me something to hold on to

     

    your tenderness is curel

    can't you see

    I wait with bated breath for you to love me?

     

    I'm like a sparrow in a parking lot

    it's free to fly away and yet it combs the asphalt

    to glean what crumbs it finds scattered all about

    it believes its' satisfied but we both know it's not

     

    I don't know why I call you as often as I do

    when everything I know about you tells me not to

    but then you speak to me so gentle

    you give me something to hold on to

    Why Hasn't the World Fallen Apart?

    Why Hasn't The World Fallen Apart?

    (c) 2003, Serina Jung

     

    the crickets don't seem to mind

    the night doesn't seem to care

    that you're not around to notice them

    morning is guaranteed

    day will dawn like it always does

    whether or not you're here

     

    and if it happens to be a good day

    I still head out to Joyce Park

    to hear the church bells ring on Sundays

    people still laugh and smile

    they just go on with living

    how I envy them

     

    nothing's really changed

    still, nothing feels the same

    I miss you, I miss you

    why hasn't the world fallen apart?

    why hasn't the world fallen apart?

     

    the ice still melts in spring

    flowers insist on blooming

    the wind still dances in the trees

    I listen from our bed

    as the branches tap the roof again

    of this lonely house on Berri Street

     

    nothing's really changed

    still, nothing feels the same

    I miss you, I miss you

    why hasn't the world fallen apart?

    why hasn't the world fallen apart?

    Blame It On the Moon

    Blame It On The Moon

    (c) 2003, Serina Jung

    It was a picture perfect moon

    that shone on you and me

    the moon and you conspired that night

    to sweep me off my feet

    it was lunar, mystic madness

    that crept inside my head

    and wound its way down to my heart

    while you were standing there

     

    I don't know if I'm lost or found

    and I'm not so sure I care

    all I know is how good I feel

    but when they ask me I declare

     

    blame it on the moon

    or something in the air

    maybe it was sorcery

    some hocus-pocus magic

    must have got the best of me

    could've been your lips that sealed my fate

    or maybe it was destiny

    but I'll blame it on the moon

    for shining love on you and me

     

    it was the glow, soft as candlelight

    reflecting off your skin

    your laughter was a melody

    that hooked and reeled me in

    there was music all around us

    that only we could hear

    it made us dance around the cars

    while everybody stared

     

    I don't know if I"m lost or found

    and I'm not so sure I care

    all I know is how good I feel

    but when they ask me I declare

     

    blame it on the moon

    or something in the air

    maybe it was sorcery

    some hocus-pocus magic

    must have got the best of me

    could've been your lips that sealed my fate

    or maybe it was destiny

    but I'll blame it on the moon

    for shining love on you and me

    Take What You Can

    Take What You Can

    (c) 2003, Serina Jung

    forever, togetherness, bliss

    common delusions of love

    but she'd been naive and believed once

    love could be enough

     

    now she thoughtfully pauses to stare

    at her face so familiar, so changed

    she vowed long ago she would leave him one day

    but she stayed

     

    time can be spiteful

    its lessons learned too late

     

    take what you can while you can

    grab it and fly

    while your heart can still pump

    your legs can still run

    don't worry too much if it's right or it's wrong

     

    defeat marks the curve of her spine

    and nightly, regret makes her bed

    her tongue is silenced by too many

    things left unsaid

     

    tomorrow will bring her

    bitter and cynical, grave, critical dread

     

    take what you can while you can

    take what you can while you can

    while your heart can still pump

    your legs can still run

    don't worry too much

    if it's right or it's wrong

    take what you can while you can

    grab it and fly

    run, don't look behind

    be selfish this time

    take what you can while you can

    I Don't Have to Be Strong

    I Don't Have To Be Strong

    (c) 1999, Serina Jung / Eric Bernard

    you know, I hate to cry

    makes me feel so weak

    and I feel ashamed of my vulnerability

    instead I scoff while I quiver like a leaf

    but it’s easier than admitting I’m sensitive

     

    when you get too close

    I seek solitude

    a place to hide but I find no shelter

    I’m not consoled by my desperate company

    but it’s easier than saying I need you

     

    I don’t have to be strong

    shouldn’t need to be in control

    if my tears want to fall I should let them flow

    I don’t need to be cruel or tough or hard

    I should learn to let go

     

    I can be such a fool when I push you to extremes

    when I need to win to make me bigger

    so I rock the boat and flounder while I sink

    cuz it’s easier than making apologies

     

    I don’t have to be strong

    shouldn’t need to be in control

    if my tears want to fall I should let them flow

    I don’t need to be cruel or tough or hard

    I should let my feelings show

    I should learn to let go

     

    I’m curt when I’m caught off-guard

    angry when I must justify

    silent when I’m cornered

    aloof when I’m ignored

    cocky when I’m questioned

    adamant when I’m uncertain

     it’s wearing me down

     wearing me down 

     

    I don’t have to be strong

    shouldn’t need to be in control

    if my tears want to fall I should let them flow

    I don’t need to be cruel or tough or hard

    I should let my feelings show

    I should learn to let go

    He Is There
    He Is There
    (c) 1999, Serina S. Jung / Eric Bernard
    No mystery, nothing to earn
    never before have I known love so pure
    his touch is a soothing caress
    he gives me assurance and strength
    I think of him, he is there
    I reach for him, he is there
    I call to him
    in a rush, he is there
    he is there
    nothing compares to his warm embrace
    close to his heart I'm always welcome and safe
    I could not ask for anything more
    his love is worth living for
    I think of him, he is there
    I reach for him, he is there
    I call to him
    in a rush, he is there
    he is there

    Wait For Me

    Wait for me


    (c) 1999, Serina S. Jung / Eric Bernard

     

    I’m just an ordinary girl

    trying to get a sense of who I am

    I sometimes wonder if I was meant for greater deeds

    or if I’m letting someone down

    I can’t help but notice how different we are

    how many times you’ve saved me from myself

    Wait for me

    I’m falling behind while I battle my demons desperately

    I’m trying to keep up but you’re so far ahead of me

    emotions shouldn’t be so oppressive

    but sometimes they just are

    I get tangled up in my own insecurities

    I get lost and can’t get out

    you’re so confident things will fall into place

    I’m amazed by how you leave no room for doubt

    Wait for me

    I’m falling behind while I battle my demons desperately

    I’m trying to keep up but you’re so far ahead of me

    I wasn’t always this confused

    it crept up on me from behind

    next thing I knew I was sealed up and all alone

    a bottle cast out to sea

    you would do anything to take away my pain

    but how long can you suffer it with me?

    Wait for me

    I’m falling behind while I battle my demons desperately

    I’m trying to keep up but you’re so far ahead of me

    wait for me

    I need your strength to drive my despair out of me

    I’m trying to keep up but you’re so far ahead of me

    A Kiss and An Apology
    A Kiss And An Apology
    (c) 1999, Serina S. Jung
    If he doesn't come
    will it be because
    he never meant to come?
    of course he'll be here soon
    with a kiss and an apology
    maybe I misheard
    maybe he said eight
    then he's really not that late
    I'll buy another cup of coffee
    and flip through a magazine
    but if he doesn't show
    then he will never know
    that I was here waiting
    could it be he didn't have the heart
    to go out of his way to tell me
    that it's over
    or could I be naive
    I can be so naive
    he must have been delayed
    and any moment now
    a taxi will deliver him to me
    but if he doesn't come
    will it be because
    he never meant to come?
    of course he'll be here soon
    with a kiss and an apology
    I know he'll be here soon
    with a kiss and an apology
    I'm sure he'll be here soon
    with a kiss and an apology

    Strong and Beautiful
    Strong and Beautiful
    (c) 1999, Serina S. Jung / Eric Bernard

    now and then she looks around

    taking stock of everything she’s striving for

    a year of slaving over-time

    to save her pennies

    she’s still living hand-to-mouth

    but she won’t resign herself

    to living this way

      

    she’s alive, she dreams

    she’s strong and beautiful and free

     

    she’s thinking about her future

    while she takes the time to fold the rags

    that make up her clothes

    boyfriend left her belly full

    he needs his space he’s gone to forge a life of his own

    but she won’t lay down

    won’t curl up and die

     

    she’s alive, she dreams

    she’s strong and beautiful and free

     

    she could resign herself to living this way

    but she’s sure her life is going to change

     

    she’s alive, she dreams

    she’s strong and beautiful and free

     she’s strong and beautiful and free

    High On Life

    High On Life

    (c) 1999, Serina S. Jung
    Silk sangria on a terrace
    pollowcase and chocolate-sundae breakfast
    romantic, classic, black-and-whites
    or Duke and Ella on the hi-fi
    ordinarily, days were dull
    but with you I'm way out there
    getting high, high, high on life
    kissing on the pedestal of a statue
    in the summer
    or the dim light of scented, floating candles
    timid inhibitions fall away like old skin
    ordinarily, I'd be shy
    but with you I'm way out there
    getting high, high, high on life

    Jumping in Heart First

    Jumping In Heart First

    (c) 1999, Serina Jung

    I know there are some risks involved

    can't predict the final outcome

    and a waste of time to over-analyze

    'cause it won't ensure a future

    he's professed his feelings

    clear as glass and at first I held back

    but despite the odds of love's success

    all I want is to be with him

    I'm jumping in heart first

    for better or the cursed worst

    giving all without reserve

    I'm plunging in

    I'm leaping, diving, no holds barred

    no matter what our chances are

    no time to test the waters

    'cause I'm jumping in

    I know it could come to a shattering end

    or maybe get stale and boring

    stats are so discouraging

    I'd prefer to ignore them

    he's funny, sexy, just my type

    he wants me, no other

    instinct tells me to go ahead

    throw prudence to the wind

    I'm jumping in heart first

    for better or the cursed worst

    giving all without reserve

    I'm plunging in

    I'm leaping, diving, no holds barred

    no matter what our chances are

    no time to test the waters

    'cause I'm jumping in

    a friend expressed deep concern

    a long courtship's her suggestion

    outrageous flirting, double entendres

    stoke his fire with mystery

    but why waste time on playing games

    with a man who's this magnetic?

    It might be a gamble, a hit or miss

    either way, I'm jumping in

    I'm jumping in heart first

    for better or the cursed worst

    giving all without reserve

    I'm plunging in

    I'm leaping, diving, no holds barred

    no matter what our chances are

    no time to test the waters

    'cause I'm jumping in

    I'm jumping in heart first

    cross my fingers, hope it works

    I'm charging forward with wild abandon

    I'm jumping in, jumping in, jumping in heart first

    What Have You Got to Sell?

    What Have You Got to Sell?

    (c) 1999, Serina Jung / Eric Bernard

    I've heard it said so many times

    everybody's got their price

    the truth of this is evident

    when you compromise yourself to get ahead

    oh, beware, when opportunity rings your bell

    and asks ever so politely

    "what have you got to sell?"

    uh uh, uh uh

    a pretty girl meets a wealthy man

    nearly twice her age and full of connections

    he doesn't turn her on in or out of bed

    but oooh Mamma, the ring is impressive!

    oh, beware! when opportunity rings your bell

    and asks ever so discreetly

    "what have you got to sell?"

    uh uh, uh uh

    that red mini dress is so sexy!

    borrowed only for the day

    a little snug on the chest and butt, don't you think?

    hell man, there's an interview to think about

    oh beware! when opportunity rings your bell

    and asks ever so nicely

    "what have you got to sell?"

    I say now, oh beware! when opportunity rings your bell

    and asks ever so nicely

    "what have you got to sell?"

    well, what have you got to sell?

    oh, baby, what have you got to sell?

    what have you got to sell?

    oh, baby, what have you got to sell?

    uh uh, uh uh

    I Sway

    I Sway

    (c) 1999 Serina Jung, Eric Bernard

    If I could have your honest opinion

    you'd say I'm out of touch, a little peculiar

    you think I'm trying to run away from reality

    how you misunderstand me

    No, I'm not interested in social analysis

    or the latest new flashes

    no, I've a passion for a soul full of melody

    it's a tonic that keeps me whole

    I dim the lights and barefoot, turn up the volume

    I let my body say whatever it wants to

    I sway

    I let music fill my empty cup

    I sway

    I let it flow, let it fill me up

    All your good intentions can't match or better

    this primal expression

    when life's a river with a dam at the deepest end

    I used it to keep afloat

    I dim the lights and barefoot, turn up the volume

    I let my body do whatever it wants to

    I sway

    I let music fill my empty cup

    I sway

    I let it flow, let it fill me up

    The Children Sang

    The Children Sang

    (c) 1999, Serina Jung / Eric Bernard

    I had a dream so fair and real

    that while I slept my heart fluttered

    there were children holding hands

    prayer and song filled the land

    I heard a voice call out my name

    I sought the source of melodious tenor

    the amber sky poured molten gold

    the children sang and formed a circle

    a tiny bird flew northward bound

    it carried a parchment, a declaration of love

    and people flocked towards the voices

    the children's message spread through the crowd

    there were sorrows and open wounds

    ther were healers with balsamic balm

    like rays of sunlight through dense-set trees

    joy came whispering of coming release

    and still we heard them with fervor strong

    a myriad voices al raised in song

    Mother Earth laughed in such embrace

    the children sang and we sang with them

    the children sang and we sang with them

    (we are the children, children of the world

     come join our circle, children of the world

     voices, all raised in song, la, la, la la)

    Moonlight Casts a Shadow

    Moonlight Casts a Shadow

    (c) 1999, Serina Jung

    Moonlight casts a shadow did you know?
    I saw it, I stood in it
    I had been feeling like I was in the dark
    suddenly, I was bathed in silver light
    I watched the moon glide slowly across the sky
    I followed it, I traced its path
    I had always thought that only the sun could shed such light
    how I yearned to be able to touch it
    hours on my doorstep in my spotlight,
    I lived it, I breathed it in and
    I discovered I was not in the dark
    moonlight casts a shadow
    moonlight casts a shadow
    mine is with me tonight
    yeah, mine is with me, tonight
