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 is one of a series of songs Sting has written that could amount to an theatrical musical of Anne Rice's "Interview With A Vampire." "Nothing like the Sun" is a reference to Shakespeare, he notes in the liner notes of said album, but this is kind of a sequel to "Moon Over Bourbon Street." I'd personally like to see Sting work more in this direction; his devotion to the love song is admirable, but I love most of the songs he's inspired to write in response to art, politics and the human condition.
