  • Under the raging sun's open fire, fire, fire
    Ain't nothin' new, ain't nothin' new
    We all have desires
    I want you to be my woman, babe
    Every time you get dressed in black
    You give a grown man a heart attack
    I pray that good Lord will bring you back
    Like the sunshine

    Shoot me down and break my heart
    It's the black moon rising (oh)
    You brave the sight, I paint the picture
    Of the black moon rising, cruise (oh)
    All she wants to do is cruise
    Right on, right on, baby, yeah
    I ain't got nothing to do now (right, right on, baby)
    With the black moon rising (right)
    Cruise (oh)

    What's going on?
    Same ol' thing, just a different season
    One hundred years and the only time she gets dressed in black
    Taking flight baby, count you down
    On your way off without a sound
    Black moon rising above the clouds
    Like the sunshine

    Shoot me down and break my heart
    It's the black moon rising
    Black moon rising, black moon rising (oh)
    You brave the sight, I paint the picture
    Of the black moon rising, cruise (oh)
    And all she wants to do is cruise
    Right on, right on baby
    And I ain't got nothing to do now (right, right on, baby)
    With the black moon rising, cruise (right, oh)

    See that black moon rise, rise

    Shoot me down and break my heart
    It's the black moon rising
    Black moon rising, black moon rising (oh)
    You brave the sight, I paint the picture
    Of the black moon rising, cruise (oh)
    All she wants to do is cruise (right)
    Right on, right on baby
    And I ain't got nothing to do now (right, right on, baby)
    With the black moon rising, cruise (right, oh) Writer/s: Adrian M Quesada, Eric Stephon Burton
