"Nightclothes" as written by and Benjamin P Cooper....
We crept from the room, moonlight spilled down the hall
And I tiptoed with you
Then we climbed out the window

And there in the yard, our nightclothes blowing in the breeze
And you looked up at the sky
And said the moon would be ours

And all this time I hear those words like bombs in the distance
And oh my, my, I can still smell the rain in the air
But time's gone by and I'm not the kid I was on that evening
And somewhere inside I hope you still see me
Just the way I was before I walked away

Mud on your dress, blood stains on the knees of my pants
And we went in search of the moon
'cause you said that you knew where it slept in the day

So we gathered up our tools: a sling-shot in case it ran for the sky
And a blanket from your room, the one with no holes
So we could drag it all the way back home

And you said when we caught it
That we would cut it up in two
And we'd wear the halves on necklaces
And then I could control tides with you

And I still hear the way that you laughed when you found I believed you
And I could still feel you pull on my arm when I was too afraid to go
And all this time I hear those words like bombs in the distance
And my, oh my, I can still smell the dirt on our hands

'cause in my head
You're still alive
You're still alive

And I know that it's a lie
But it's one I like
It's one I like
