When the moon hits the river
He cried how can you lie there so still, oh my love
When I see him I shiver
It reminds me of my own forgotten love

When you were near everything was clear
I was always seeing rainbows
But now you're gone I can't bear the sun
How did everything get so tangled?
Every night, that old yellow moon
He cries, "why don't you take a chance with me?"

When I saw your face in the marketplace
I was hooked like a fish in the sea
Why did you let me fall into your net?
I know who your angel is and it's not me
Every night, that old yellow moon
He cries, "why don't you take a chance with me?"


from Bushrangers Need Bush, released December 23, 2015
