The Moon Keeps Me

(Rebecca Cohen)
The Moon Keeps Me

The moon keeps me through the night
The moon keeps me through the night
The moon keeps me through the night
The moon keeps me through the night

Let me see her dancing on the water
Let me see her shining through the trees
Let me see her rising in the heavens
Let her see me on my knees

The moon keeps me through the night (x 4)

I have known so many years of sorrow
I have witnessed so much pain
I stand in moonlight and I know mercy
Her love comes pouring down like rain

The moon keeps me through the night (x 4)

Moonlight washes all the lies from me
Moonlight unlocks the cage around my heart
Moonlight shows me the life and love in me
Moonlight sings the softest part

The moon keeps me through the night (x 4)

Come my sisters, dance here in the moonlight
Come my brothers, join us all in peace
Let the moonlight wash your sorrows from you
Let her put your souls at ease

The moon keeps me through the night (x 4)
