I see you better now, shaded in deeper blue
Hardly needing to carry the find-your-way-lamp
Down to the river
And tonight flies a better moon

Sad water buffalo lie fast near the shallows
A splash revealing the fly catching fishes
Dark Gods silently watching
And tonight flies a better moon

I guess you've known lovers here, compliant in passion
Softly laid in the old reed bed
Harshly lit in the noon sun
And tonight flies a better moon

Now cloaked in this milky light, new as the virgin dawn
Shrouded sweetly in all kinds of mystery
Turn, smile and then are gone
And tonight flies a better moon
And tonight flies a better moon
And tonight flies a better moon
