"Sunny Moon" as written by and Felix Riebl....
I climbed the ladder of those black and white keys
They take me up and into places some are real and some imaginary
And though she sways between the mystery and light
She walks with me
She walks with me alone into the night

Tonight I see the sunny moon is rising again
Three seasons passed since you were here then disappeared a friend
Yet now exploded from it's dreams back in that place oh how it beams
And I see that you were glowing in the shadows
And you've been here all along
And you've never left my side
And now I feel my arms grow stronger

You may forget the details and you can forget the dates
But never forget the moment when the night revealed her face
To be poor by lack of money but by god be rich in prize
I found my youth's desire dark within her eyes
And the tent kept breathing something else and she cried
Although we're going somewhere else tonight
We're going somewhere else tonight baby, yeah

And my friends they the heroes of the loneliness that's life
I know everyone has a weakness, only some they are defiant
Well most of us can see only a few the gift of sight
Would you walk with me?
Would you walk with me alone into the night?
The sun is set

    General CommentI think its about how, as a musician, sometimes you lose inspiration and get artists block or something.
    The first verse (IMO) describes how he feels when playing the piano/making music ("I climb the ladder of those black and white keys") and how it can take you to another place completely. ("They take me out and into places some are real some are imaginary...")

    The next verse tells how inspiration has suddenly struck again, after not being able to come up with anything for a while. ("Tonight I see the sunny moon is rising again/Three seasons passed since you were here...")
    I've had that before, where you get a block for a really long time, and start to wonder if you've lost it, but then it comes back and you feel all relieved and go back to doing whatever ("And I see that you were glowing in the shadows/And you've been here all along/Ah you never left my side") with so much more enthusiasm ("now I feel my arms grow/Stronger")

    The third for me seems to be a reminder or a warning, to never forget how you felt when you first discovered the joy mentioned in the first verse ("You may forget the details and you can forget the dates but never/
    Forget the moment when the light revealed her face...")
    I think that the line "To be poor by lack of money but by god be rich in prize" is about maybe being a musician/artist who isn't successful, and might not be making much money, but they're rich in spirit because of what they can create, and because they love what they do.

    And, uh, the rest of the song is missing, and i don't have the song handy to listen to :/
    Sorry I wrote so much ^^;

    General CommentSorry, I love this song too much to leave the lyrics incomplete. Here's my best interpretation:

    I climbed the ladder of those black and white keys
    They take me up and into places some are real and some imaginary
    And though she sways between the mystery and light
    She walks with me
    She walks with me alone into the night

    Tonight I see the sunny moon is rising again
    Three seasons passed since you were here then disappeared a friend
    Yet now exploded from it's dreams back in that place oh how it beams
    And I see that you were glowing in the shadows
    And you've been here all along
    And you've never left my side
    And now I feel my arms grow stronger

    You may forget the details and you can forget the dates
    But never forget the moment when the night revealed her face
    To be poor by lack of money but by god be rich in prize
    I found my youth's desire dark within her eyes
    And the tent kept breathing something else and she cried
    Although we're going somewhere else tonight
    We're going somewhere else tonight baby, yeah

    And my friends they the heroes of the loneliness that's life
    I know everyone has a weakness, only some they are defiant
    Well most of us can see only a few the gift of sight
    Would you walk with me?
    Would you walk with me alone into the night?
