Moonlight Tonight

I’ve had this pie in the sky vision clouding my mind.

I couldn’t see for the haze in my dreams.

I’m coming down from the clouds.

I’ve got both feet on the ground.

I’ve got a clear view and I feel brand new.

        Signs on the wall met my eyes,

        But I just had to sing one last time.

        I could see in your eyes when I crossed that line,

        I’m trading spotlights for moonlight tonight.

There’s that hat that I’ve worn, it’s beat up and torn.

See these holes in my faded blue jeans.

I’ve been wrapped up in me,

But now my spirit is free.

I’ve got a clear view and I feel brand new.

        Signs on the wall met my eyes,

        But I just had to sing one last time.

        I could see in your eyes when I crossed that line,

        I’m trading spotlights for moonlight tonight.

As I look back on life and what money can’t buy

It’s been you dear, but I couldn’t see.

Now I’ve come to believe

You’re what matters to me.

I’ve got a clear view and I feel brand new.

        Signs on the wall met my eyes,

        But I just had to sing one last time.

        I could see in your eyes when I crossed that line,

        I’m trading spotlights for moonlight tonight.

Yeah, I’m trading spotlights for moonlight tonight!
