Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
Stay back, stay long, and you move on
I stress, come close, move on, please don't

[Pre-Chorus]
Hello, how are you? How you've been?
Lately I wonder how it feels to steal your kiss
Nothing much, just fine I'm doing well
And you can read between the lines but God, I fell

[Chorus]
I only told the moon, tonight up on the roof
I told her that I'm scared that all my thoughts they look like you
I only told the moon, about the way you move
I asked her to please tell me if you tell things to her too

[Verse 2]
Silence. Too loud. Say it, not now

[Pre-Chorus]
So how are you? How you've been?
Lately I wonder how it feels to taste your lips
Nothing much, just fine I'm doing well
And you can read between the lines but God, I fell

[Chorus]
I only told the moon, tonight up on the roof
I told her that
I'm scared that all my thoughts they look like you
I only told the moon, about the way you move
I asked her to please tell me if you tell things to her too
That I give it all to you, I give it all to you, I give it all to you
I only told the moon

[Bridge]
And another love song will play on the radio, you know
And I’ll wait for the moon to lean in close and say…

[Chorus]
That he only told the moon, tonight up on the roof
He told me that he’s scared that all his thoughts they look like you
I only told the moon, about the way you move
I asked her to please tell me if you tell this to her too

[Outro]
That I give it all to you, I give it all to you, I give it all to you
We only told the moon
We only told the moon.
