Moonlight

Album: Dangerous Woman (2016)
  • The sun is setting
    And you're right here by my side
    And the movie's playing
    But we won't be watching tonight
    Every look, every touch
    Makes me wanna give you my heart
    I be crushin' on you, baby
    Stay the way you are

    'Cause I never knew, I never knew
    You could hold moonlight in your hands
    'Til the night I held you
    You are my moonlight
    Moonlight

    I kiss his fingertips
    As I'm wishing he's all mine
    He's giving me Elvis
    With some James Dean in his eyes
    Puts his lips on my neck
    Makes me want to give him my body
    I be fallin' for you, baby
    And I just can't stop

    'Cause I never knew, I never knew
    You could hold moonlight in your hands
    'Til the night I held you
    You are my moonlight
    Moonlight
    Baby, I be fallin'
    You're my moonlight
    Moonlight

    He's so bossy
    He makes me dance
    Tryna sit in the back of his whip
    And just cancel my plans
    Sweet like candy
    But he's such a man
    He knows just what it does
    When he's holding me tight
    And he calls me "Moonlight" too Writer/s: Ariana Grande, Peter Johnson, Tommy Brown, Victoria McCants
