Future Islands – Moonlight Lyrics

Moonlight By Future Islands

Here’s our chance to make it
Make this into something more
Here’s my heart don’t break it
It’s all that I ask
Nothing more
Break into your heart
Called from wild and far away
Can any fool learn love?

It’s all that I ask
Nothing more
Nothing more

So we just lay in bed all day
I couldn’t see, by the cloud in my arms
But if I ask you, would you say
It’s only rain, nothing more

Nothing more
Nothing more
Nothing more

Here I lay me down
Here I lay me down
Here I lay me down
Here I lay me down

(Here I lay me down)
(Here I lay me down)


“‘Moonlight’ is a song about love in a depressive state,” Samuel T. Herring said in a statement. “It’s about recognizing the holes in ourselves and recognizing the circular whole of others. ‘Moonlight’ is about acceptance because that’s what love allows us all.”
