"Black Moonlight" as written by and Johnston/coslow....
Lost in the shuffle, I've drifted and strayed
Bruised by the city, bewildered, betrayed
With a heart heavy laden with faltering strides
I have come to the bridge, to the line that divides

What am I doing up here in a daze
As I gaze at the cold river bed
Why do I ask myself, shall I go back
When I seem to be going ahead

To black moonlight
Where everything reflects your color
Darkness that is endless
Nights that leave me friendless, blue

Black moonlight
You make the lights of Harlem duller
Just like me you're faded, jaded and degraded, too
Why must you send
Ebony moonbeams, depressing, distressing
Like shadows of love that are gone

Where will it end
Will it spread on to the starlight, the sunlight
And darken each promise of dawn

Black moonlight
I've lost all power to resist you
Madly, I await you, even though I hate you
Black, black moonlight
