Lyrics

Clouds rimmed in silver, magic light of the moon
The party ended late but way too soon
You saw me fall for him by the band's last tune
But secrets aren't safe with you
Beautiful Moon

No stars to alert me, your conspiracy to chime
Clandestine clouds, your partners in crime
You alone knew my secret, entrusted to you
I can't hide in the clouds as you do

Well, what did you show him? What could he have seen
Of my unavowed heart by your beguiling beams
So you betrayed me, you traitor, your innocence I impugn
Mirror of my heart, you beautiful moon.

Did you conspire with the man to make my mystery undone?
Or did you consort with your sister, the sun?
Take away all her light, I'm abandoned to your night
With no power to fight moonlight

So you've been on my side all the while
My accomplice in your style

So you've brought him to me, my secret meets its doom
I'll forgive your treachery of revealing my heart so soon
For I've discovered your design--chance had no room
You've been an artful ally
My beautiful moon.
