oh how beautiful the night
to be cast in the orange moonlight
we laughed and talked and had a good time
but time stole away and now it is upon nigh
she's so beautiful and youthful in the light
her features so detailed and those eyes
they light up when she smiles
but there's a distance between us she keeps for miles
for she belongs to another's caress and care
but still she stands, looking at the moon over there
glimmering stars dance in her eyes
she looks at me, smiles and says goodbye
