Lyrics

Day by day
We let love just walk away
And I’ll be the first to say
I was glad to see it go
And day by day
Ever since you went away
I find that I’m still missing you
And I just got to know
Does that blue moon ever shine on you?
I wanna hold you close to me
Feel just like it used to be
And baby, if you feel like I do
You can come to me
Does that blue moon ever shine on you?
On my mind
You were right there all the time
I could search and never find someone
That does me like you do
Here’s the part
Where I’m giving you my heart
I was a fool to let you go
Girl, I just got to know
Does that blue moon ever shine on you?
I wanna hold you close to me
Feel just like it used to be
And baby, if you feel like I do
You can come to me
Does that blue moon ever shine on you?
Night after night
I look to the stars
Wondering where you might be
And I thought to myself
Is that very same moon
Shining on you, like it’s shining on me?
Does that blue moon ever shine on you?
I wanna hold you close to me
Feel just like it used to be
And baby, if you feel like I do
You can come to me
Does that blue moon ever shine on you?
