Sister moon will be my guide
In your blue blue shadows I would hide
All good people asleep tonight
I'm all by myself in your silver light
I would gaze at your face the whole night through
I'd go out of my mind but for you
I'd go out of my mind but for you

Lying in a mother's arms
The primal root of a woman's charms
I'm a stranger to the sun
My eyes are too weak
How cold is a heart
When it's warmth that he seeks?
You watch every night, you don't care what I do
I'd go out of my mind, but for you
I'd go out of my mind, but for you

My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun
My hunger for her explains everything I've done
To howl at the moon the whole night through
And they really don't care if I do
I'd go out of my mind for you

Sister moon

    General CommentThis song simply means that he has two women. One is like the sun, who's his wife, the other is like the moon, who's his mistress (sister moon). He's totally and completely in love with his mistress, who's nothing like the sun. Sister moon gives him warmth and comfort. He says he'd go out of his mind if it wasn't for her, and he just doesn't care.
