Lyric discussion by sillybunny 

This is a lovely analogy—seeing the moon as a sister rather than just an orb circling the planet, suggesting the man of the song would spend long hours meditating on her silver light—different because we usually see the moon’s face as male.

I’ll agree with mark36 that the song sounds like something Louie or Lestat might have sung. Great song by a very talented songwriter.
