Can't Fight The Moonlight

Album: i Need You (2000)
Charted: 1 11
  • Under a lovers' sky
    Gonna be with you
    And no one's gonna be around
    If you think that you won't fall
    Well just wait until
    Til the sun goes down

    Underneath the starlight, starlight
    There's a magical feeling, so right
    It will steal your heart tonight

    You can try to resist
    Try to hide from my kiss
    But you know
    But you know that you can't fight the moonlight
    Deep in the dark
    You'll surrender your heart
    But you know
    But you know that you can't fight the moonlight
    No, you can't fight it
    It's gonna get to your heart

    There's no escape from love
    Once a gentle breeze
    Weaves its spell upon your heart
    No matter what you think
    It won't be too long
    Til you're in my arms
    Underneath the starlight, starlight
    We'll be lost in the rhythm, so right
    Feel it'll steal your heart tonight

    You can try to resist
    Try to hide from my kiss
    But you know
    But you know that you can't fight the moonlight
    Deep in the dark
    You'll surrender your heart
    But you know
    But you know that you can't fight the moonlight
    No you can't fight it
    No matter what you do
    The night is gonna get to you

    Don't try then
    You're never gonna win

    Part of me the starlight, starlight
    There's a magical feeling, so right
    It will steal your heart tonight

    You can try to resist
    Try to hide from my kiss
    But you know
    But you know that you can't fight the moonlight
    Deep in the dark
    You'll surrender your heart
    But you know
    But you know that you can't fight the moonlight
    No

    You can try to resist (Try to hide from my kiss)
    But you know
    Don't you know that you can't fight the moonlight
    Deep in the dark
    You'll surrender your heart
    But you know
    But you know that you can't fight the moonlight
    No, you can't fight it
    You can try to resist
    You can hide from my kiss
    Don't you know, don't you know that you can't fight the moonlight
    Deep in the dark
    You'll surrender your heart
    But you know
    But you know that you can't fight the moonlight Writer/s: Diane Warren
