  • You've got ways
    To take hold of my thoughts
    Over-riding my senses
    Lock your sights
    Dead in line with my heart
    Share your powers
    You stir my soul
    And whet my hunger
    And weave that spell
    That pulls me under

    These moonlight desires
    Haunt me
    They want me, they want me
    These moonlight desires
    Haunt me
    You're sending, you're sending

    Secret fires
    Burning inside me unknown
    Ragging on
    Never mentioned
    Only you
    Can uncover the flames
    Break their silence
    And make them dance
    For us to see them
    And break their chains
    And give them freedom

    These moonlight desires
    Haunt me
    They want me, they want me
    These moonlight desires
    Haunt me
    You're sending, you're sending

    A wave over my mind (wave over my mind)
    And I fall to it blind
    You say :
    Trust me

    Stir my soul
    And whet my hunger
    And weave that spell
    That pulls me under

    These moonlight desires
    Haunt me
    They want me, they want me
    These moonlight desires
    Haunt me
    You're sending, you're sending

    A wave over my mind
    Moonlight desires
    Your secret powers burn me
    These moonlight desires
    Haunt me
    They want me, they want me
    These moonlight desires
    Haunt me
    They want me, they want me
    You're sending, you're sending
    These moonlight desires
    Haunt me
    They want me, they want me
    These moonlight desires
    Haunt me
    You're sending, you're sending
    They want me, they want me
    A wave over my mind

  • Tracy Tiffon from EnglandGreat song!
  • Nat from PhilippinesI really like how Gowan sang the song and you can see that he expresses it with the right emotion. I really like this song and him.
  • David from Lakeland, FlI remember another song by this group called "Strange Animal" back in like 1984. When the ability to download music came about I found it back in 01.Great to here something you thought youd never hear again!
  • Paul from Rothesay, New Brunswick , CanadaFor the past few years, Gowan has taken Dennis DeYoung's place in Styx.
