Mickey Newbury - "Silver Moon" lyrics

Silver Moon

As I lie
Alone tonight
The silver moon
that once shone bright

Has been replaced
By one of blue
And I am sad
And missing you

How I long
To see your face
And lose myself
In your embrace

I watch the sky
From my dark room
Searching for
That silver moon

Once we stood you and I
On a hill where its light
Cast its spell down on us
From us up above

It was there we traded hearts
And vowed we'd never part
Oh but now all I see
When I look up

Is a sky
Thats lost its glow
Like this heart
That loves you so

Oh Lord I pray
You'd come home soon
And bring back
The silver moon

Please bring back
The silver moon
