Under the full moon

Nothing stirs

Under the full moon

Oceans rise

Under the full moon

Fear departs

Under the full moon

Under the full moon

Soul rejoices

Under the full moon

Love is born

Lovers sigh

Under the full moon

Lovers die

 

Under the full moon

Heartbeat subsides

Under the full moon

The future is here

Under the full moon

The past revives

 

Under the full moon

All is as is

Under the full moon

Nothing leaves

Under the full moon

Darkness reigns

Under the full moon

Light remains.
