The wind blows rain into my face
The sun glows at the end of the highway

Child of the moon
Rub your rainy eyes
Oh child of the moon
Give me a wide awake, crescent shaped smile

She shivers, by the light she is hidden
She flickers like a lamp lady vision

The first car on the foggy road riding
The last star for my lady is pining

Oh child of the moon
Bid the sun arise
Oh child of the moon
Give me a misty day, pearly grey, silver, silky, stained
Wide awake, crescent shaped smile
