Fighting The Moonlight

Fighting The Moonlight

A Poem by James

Can I just sit a little bit longer
Stare out the window
and watch the sun rise.

It's a long day living in the shadows
hiding my face
like some beaten down guy.

We all got a little more life left
We all got a little more time
We all got a room full of sunshine
Fighting the moonlight, trying to stay alive.

You tell me that I'm not your problem
Your car won't start
Lord, it's just one more thing.

The boss man says you can't work here
The street is cold
Tomorrow's another day.

Sing, sing, nobody's listening
Sing it loud, before the words get away
Sing, Sing, and stare at the sunshine
Fight off the moonlight, try to stay alive.

We all got a little more life left
We all got a little more time
We all got a room full of sunshine
Fighting the moonlight, trying to stay alive.

He said man ain't she pretty
Walking home
After working at night

She said, man why's he walking
She pulled up close
And gave him a ride.

They both got a whole lot of life left
They both got a whole lot of time
They grew old staring at the sunshine
Fighting that moonlight trying to stay alive.
