Moonlight Lyrics

by Sting

In the moonlight when the shadows play
When the thought of what could happen takes your breath away
Sighs and whispers, quiet laughter in the air
Unspoken invitations everywhere

In the moonlight, all the words you say
Make it relatively easy to be swept away

In the half-light, can we trust the way we feel?
Can we be sure that anything is real?
Stars keep secrets as they wander in discretely
And the echoes of a song go drifting by

We must be careful not to lose our way completely
Or the magic that we [unverified] here, we can't be sure
Will be here in the morning with the moon away
And if in each other's arms is where we're meant to stay

In the love-light when our eyes have grown
Accustomed to the daylight, we'll see what waits
For us to share, for all the things we've dreamed of
In the moonlight will be there
