The Moonlight
Lyrics
(WE USED TO OWN) THE MOONLIGHT
Words and Music by Bob Bentley
©Nov 2018

Verse 1. Its been hard tonight, watching people dance with you
Seeing other guys and knowing what they're trying to do.

Chorus 1. We used to own the moonlight, the planets and the stars
But you gave it all away when you went and broke my heart

Verse 2. It's been a year or more, I'd put memories behind
But seeing you tonight brought them flooding back to mind

Chorus 2. We used to own the moonlight, the planets and the stars
But you threw it all away when you went and broke my heart

Bridge It's not that I'm alone now, but I haven't been the same,
I never know how long they'll stay
I'd change it all, no questions and no blame
If we could one more time ride the milky way

Verse 3. I've had a hard time coping with reality
I've had to realise the way it's going to be

Chorus 3. We used to own the moonlight, the planets and the stars
But then you gave it all away when you went and broke my heart
We used to own the moonlight, I never thought you'd go
Now I'm looking from the outside, and you don't even know

Repeats You broke my heart
We used to own the moonlight,
