The moon is up, the sun is (goes) down
(And) You can't have it both ways round
(So come on) Baby, won't you listen to me?
(Cause) We are worlds apart, you see

Where are you now?
Crying out loud

Where did you go
When I needed you?

The sun sinks behind the clouds
And hides his tears without a sound
The moon looks on reflectively
So spare a thought for me and you

Where are you now?
Dark are the clouds

The moon is up, the sky is black
I'll sail away and won't come back
The sun goes down, the stars will rise
And dance across the darkened skies

The sun goes down
The moon comes up
