Moon Song Lyrics

by Frank Sinatra

Once I tried to capture the rapture of the night
Silly dreams I knew would disappear
But it seems they left a souvenir
One refrain eternally will haunt me, taunt me

It came from nowhere, the night that we met
'Twas like a melodious plea
Wee, moon song that wasn't meant for me
Why is it always reminding me
Of a love dream that never could be?
Wee, moon song that wasn't meant for me

It came gliding into my heart
Riding on a moonbeam from above
Sorrow and this and the whole world
Blended in a rhapsody of love

There I heard her singing to somebody else
What I thought was my melody
Wee, moon song that wasn't meant for me
