Long Night of the Moon

Long night of the moon
And I’m feeling the hunger.
I’m lost in the tune
And I’m ready to go.
Can’t happen too soon
‘Cause I’m not getting much younger.
I’m just waiting for thunder
In the night of the moon.

I hear the rumble, I hear the roar.
I feel the pressure, I feel her soar.
I sing the music of the thundering jet,
Then I awaken and I can’t forget.

I see the stations move against the stars.

I see stars shining in the night.
I see people building rocket ships and everything’s all right.
And I hear a song that ended much too soon
As I’m staring at the dark side of the moon.

Inside the crescent, I see new light,
New constellations of cities taken flight,
But the cities fade away and they take away their song
And I wonder where they’ve gone to and I want to go along.

(Chorus twice)

In the night of the moon.
In the light of the moon.
