Out of the darkness you suddenly appeared

You smiled and I was taken by surprise

I guess I should have seen right through you

But the moon got in my eyes.

I was so thrilled by the love you volunteered,

I gave my heart without a compromise

I guess you don't remember, do you?

When the moon got in my eyes

I thought a kingdom was in sight

That I would have the right to claim

But with the morning's early light

I didn't have a dream to my name

You know the saying that all who love are blind;

It seems that ancient adage still applies.

I guess I should have seen right through you,

But the moon got in my eyes
