Moon Is Up

Album: Voodoo Lounge (1994)
  • Moon is up
    The sun is down
    You can't have it both ways 'round
    Ooh babe, won't you listen to me?
    We are worlds apart, you see
    Ooh, where are you now?
    Ooh, crying out loud
    Where did you go
    When I needed you?

    The sun sinks behind the clouds
    And hides his tears without a sound
    The moon looks on reflectively
    So spare a thought for you and me
    Ooh, where are you now?
    Dark are the clouds
    Where did you go
    When I needed you?

    The moon is up
    The sky is black
    I'll sail away and won't come back
    The sun goes down
    The stars will rise
    And dance across
    The darkened skies

    Mm, sun goes down
    The moon comes up

    The moon is up
    The sun goes down
    And you can't have it both ways 'round
    So come on baby and listen to me
    'Cause we are worlds apart, you see

    The sun goes down
    The moon comes up
    The sun goes down Writer/s: Keith Richards, Mick Jagger
