Sister Moon Lyrics

by Sting

Sister moon will be my guide
In your blue, blue shadows I would hide
All good people asleep tonight
I'm all by myself in your silver light

I would gaze at your face the whole night through
I'd go out of my mind, but for you
I'd go out of my mind, but for you

I'm lyin' in a mother's arms
The primal root of a woman's charms
I'm a stranger to the sun, my eyes are too weak
How cold is a heart, when it's warmth that he seek?

You watch every night, you don't care what I do
I'd go out of my mind, but for you
I'd go out of my mind, but for you

My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun
My hunger for her explains everythin' I've done
To howl at the moon the whole night through
And they really don't care if I do

I'd go out of my mind, but for you
Sister moon
