Lyrics

Neon Moonlight

Written By: Rosco Martinez & Peter Wolf

I watch your shadow disappearing
I seen the smoke burning in my eyes
How will I explain it to my heart
The sun has slipped away since you've gone
Even if it won't be for long
Promise Baby you'll keep our fire burning bright
Even if a long way from home
We can share our dreams together
Like the night

Neon Moonlight
Helping you find your way home
I am waiting
Listen to my heart it's calling
Hurry up, hurry up
You know I'm waiting
Hurry up, hurry up
Why don't you just come on home

I want to smile for the world
This is going wrong just as usual
Get it good and hard in my heart
And I feel that for some reason you won't call
I brave the time to be kind
Somedays I feel like I'm going out of my mind
Baby I'm at ease when you were here
I feel something's happening
With you near

Neon Moonlight
Helping you find your way home
I am waiting
Listen to my heart it's calling
Hurry up, hurry up
You know I'm waiting
Hurry up, hurry up
Why don't you just come on home

In a moments endless passing by
They say distance makes the heart grow fonder
That's what they say
You don't need to stay away
Couldn't love you any better

Neon Moonlight
Helping you find your way home
I am waiting
Listen to my heart it's calling
Hurry up, hurry up
You know I'm waiting
Hurry up, hurry up
Why don't you just come on home

Hurry up, hurry up
You know I'm waiting
Hurry up, hurry up
Why don't you just come on home
Hurry up, hurry up
You know I'm waiting..
