Nashville: Lyrics – Moon is High

Moon is High
Written by: Unknown
Sung by: Jonathan Jackson (Avery) & Clare Bowen (Scarlett)
Nashville Scene: Avery and Scarlett sing together on stage at 7th and Fogg

The moon is high
It’s not the only one
I’m alone and I’m traveling
So shine a light on me
Down through my balcony
You’ll send me spinning
Or you’ll find me howling

I’m under your window
My shades are drawn tight
He’s up there with you
He’s been up here all night
Do you favor a man when he breaks down and begs
Or a boy with his tail dragging between his legs
I feel vicious inside
and the moon is high

Now the sky’s full of rain
And I’m starting to weigh
And I want to tear a strip from the firmament
I dream your near
Whispering endearments

If I could take that full moon and make it more permanent
I’m close to your window
Are you tired of it now
Is your light in the gutter
And all you’ve allowed
Do you favor a man when he breaks down and begs
Or a boy with his tail dragging wherever you leave

Now I’m in full cry
And the moon is high

Now I’m in full cry
And I want to tear the strip from your firmament
Howling for your love
I’m howling for your love
I’m howling for your love
