The Cat And The Moon - Song Lyrics

The Cat And The Moon - Copyright 2006 Charles Sjolander

The Cat And The Moon

Written 1992

Verse 1:
the cat's rolled up like a ball on the sofa
there is no breeze to speak of it's late at night
the moon is full and drawing me out
to dance alone in it's ethereal light

Verse 2:
the cat rolls over to strike another pose
the summer heat covers me like a blanket I do not need
the moon takes a few more steps along it's nightly path
and I dance with abandon my inhibitions I do not heed

Refrain:
the cat and the moon and the night and the breeze
are taking me away from this one reality
the cat and the moon and the night and the breeze
are taking me away from this one reality

Verse 3:
the cat is twitching with dreams I'll never share
a whisper of wind now speaks to me gently
the moon sways towards me and I towards her
I dance with the universe 'though I am all I see

Verse 4:
the cat now stretches and floats into the air
it looks like fun and I join her soon
together we float softly above the trees
and dance together all the way to the moon

Refrain.
