"Like the Moon" as written by and Samuel Thompson Herring William Cashion....
She looks like the moon
She says, "it's your eyes"
She sees everything
She knows me too well

She looks like the day
She says, "it's the light"
Something in the way, she says, "goodbye"

And she looks like the moon
So close and yet, so far
She says everything
She knows me too well

And I can call you, "friend"
And I can be the world
Silent chatter held
I won't be around

And I can be a friend
But I won't be around
Silent chatter, bound
Just don't push me out

She looks like the moon
She says, "it's your eyes"
She says everything
She knows me too well

And I can call you, "friend"
But I won't be around
Silent chatter, bound
Just don't push me out

We don't have to speak tonight
Just don't say, "goodbye"

Making a home in my body
Letting it grow in my body
Taking these chains from my body
Letting it go from my body
Letting it go from me body
Taking these chains from my body
Is harder than you know

She looks like the moon
She says, "it's your eyes"
She says everything
She knows me too well

And she looks like the day
She says, "it's the light"
Something in the way, she says, "goodbye"

Just don't say goodbye
I can be the world, tonight

    General CommentSeems to me that the song is about a one night stand.

    The lyrics speak to how he "won't be around".

    Seems to me that he's desperate to spend one night with this beautiful woman who reminds him of the moon in both looks and how they'll both be gone by morning.

    Rather than dismiss him now, he's hoping they can be together and enjoy each others company, despite knowing where they'll ultimately end up.

    It's quite sad but ultimately hopeful, if only for the pleasure of the moment

    My OpinionI don't think it's about a one night stand because he sings a lot about a girlfriend he lost because he's on the road a lot. She cheated on him when he was gone for 4 months. The song "Long Flight" is about that experience of catching her " in flagrante delicto" and how it broke his heart. He's a very sensitive guy.
