Captain Beefheart And The Magic Band Lyrics

"Moonchild" lyrics

on the night she was born
the lightning flashed and the thunder roared
but when they heard her cry
the clouds rolled back and the full moon filled the sky
shining down in her eye
and it made her cry
can you hear her cry?
she always looks so pale
the things she spoke and a long white veil
she has wrapped up so tight
your mind comes loose and you drift on out of sight
she's a child of the night
and like a child she cries
can you hear her cry?

i know she tries to hide
the way she feels on the darker side
she likes to fall in love every time there's a full moon up above
then she's out of this world
she's another girl
and it makes her cry
i love to hear her cry
