Lyrics:
I'm so tired of being alone
These penitent walls are all I've known
Songbird calling across the water
Inside my silent asylum

Oooh blue moon
Oh don't leave me on my own
Oooh blue moon
Left me standing all alone
Cut me down to size so I can fit inside
The lies that will divide us both in time

See the turncoat on his knees
The vagabond that no one sees
When that moon is throwing shadows
You can't save the wounds you've caught in battle

Oooh blue moon
Oh don't leave me on my own
Oooh blue moon
Left me standing all alone
Cut me down to size so I can fit inside
Lies you try to hide behind your eyes

Don't leave me on my own
Don't leave me on my own
So cut me down to size so I can fit inside
Lies that will divide us both in time
