Moon Tango

                                    after The Gotan Project

   How can you sleep at night
     How can you sleep at night
When the moon hangs huge above your window?

   How can you bite back the cry
      How can you bite back the cry
The night finds bloody and ragged in your throat?

   I ask you questions, what am I saying
I ask you these questions, what do I say
The night is innocent of all you accuse it.

    Night is the moon’s dark love
Night is hidden by the moon’s love
All it allows us is earthy and stained with tears.
