The Bright Black

The Bright Black

Because the moonlight


No I won’t believe a word you say
But wrap your legs around me I might concentrate
Take what you need then you can throw me away
I kind of like this twisted game that you play
Yet deep down I know if you said so
I’d be begging on my knees for more
And so I won’t believe a word you say
But wrap your legs around me I might concentrate

I might concentrate

Because the moonlight only shines once the clouds roll back
And a movie does not start until the theatre fades to black
Yeah you’ll only hear applause towards the end of this song
And I’m not moving on until you’re gone

Until you’re gone

Yeah it’s you that I will name and blame
But ask me back tonight and I might just obey
Then I’ll be just one more memory in your hall of fame
I’m sorry honey I don’t play that way
Yet deep down I know if you said so
I’d be begging on my knees for more
And so I won’t believe a word you say
But wrap your legs around me I might concentrate

I might concentrate

You know you’ve got me underneath your thumb
But now I can read the palm of your hand
Oh I see a future that has just begun
And it’s starting with a one-night stand
So take me back to yours
Put the latch on the door
Because tonight we are the lock and the key
Just you wait and see

Because the moonlight only shines once the clouds roll back
And a movie does not start until the theatre fades to black
Yeah you’ll only hear applause towards the end of this song
And I’m not moving on until you’re gone
