"Moonshine" as written by Mark Ronson, Philip Lawrence, Ari Levine, Andrew Wyatt, Jeff Bhasker and Peter Hernandez....
Hello
You know you look even better than the way you did now before
And the moment that you kissed my lips you know I started to feel wonderful
It's something incredible, there's sex in your chemicals
Oh, let's go
You're the best way I know to escape the extraordinary
This world ain't for you, and I know for damn sure this world ain't for me
Lift off and say goodbye
Just let your fire set me free

Moonshine, take us to the stars tonight
Take us to that special place
That place we went the last time, the last time

I know, I was with you last night but it feels like it's been so long
And everybody that's around they know that I'm not myself when you gone
It's good to see you again, good to see you again
On top of the world, is where I stand when you're back in my life
Life's not so bad when you're way up this high
Everything is alright, everything is alright

Moonshine, take us to the stars tonight
Take us to that special place
That place we went the last time, the last time, oh

Moonshine, your love it makes me come alive
Take us to that special place
That place we went the last time, the last time

Tu-ru-tu don't you never look back
We are not afraid to die young and live fast
Give me good times, give me love, give me laughs
Let's take a ride to the sky before the night is gone

Moonshine, take us to the stars tonight
Take us to that special place
That place we went the last time, the last time, oh

Moonshine, your love it makes me come alive
Take us to that special place
That place we went the last time, the last time

    General CommentAgain - I'm surprised there are no comments on this one either...this is another awesome song. I love the way Bruno explores different chord combinations on this album and it differs so much from Doo Waps & Hooligans....much darker....much better in my opinion, not so melancholy, more aggressive...
    This song is self explanatory too. It is that person that you are not dating, but you meet up with, a favorite one night stand maybe....where you have the electricity in the physical relationship...this person who is your personal drug. Its a good song - definitely another album favorite.

    General CommentThis song is simply AMAZING!!! Am I the only one who thinks this song is maybe about addiction? As Moonshine is a very powerful type of drink. Mars uses words like "chemicals" and "fire" which could be associated to alcohol. To me it's about finding something that will take you away from the world ("take us to the stars tonight"). And the singer can't stop ("I know I was with you last night but it seems like it's been so long"). And it also defines him ("Everybody knows I'm not myself when you're gone"). I get that vibe from the song because even though the lyrics seem joyful, it's sung with sorrow. Maybe I'm over-analyzing this song but that's how I interpret it.
