I wait till everyone's asleep
Then out into the night I creep
No one can see me now
Or hear me running, soundlessly

The moon's the only light I need
To search for food, young ones to feed
But as the dawn is drawing near the earth, my ways not clear
I'm trapped on the outside

Moonlight save me, moonlight save me
Moonlight save me, moonlight save me

Unearthly fear, it grips my skin
Unearthly sound, the hunt begins
I hear excited cries
But dare not look from where I'm hiding

The multi-colored humans ride
Soon they will find me where I hide
The brown and white tormentors
Begin to howl and then I'm running

Moonlight save me

I cut across the trail I left five miles before
One chance to throw them off my scent but I'm not sure
An elder told me it had worked sometime before

My heart is beating like a drum
I make the ridge but can't go on
I turn to face my death
But nothing comes to stop me breathing

Down in the clearing now I see
They're searching all around for me
Confusion everywhere
But I am safe up here, I've won
I've won, I've won, I've won, I've won
