  "Love And Theft" session, Clinton Studios, NYC - 16.may.2001, take 1  

The seasons they are turnin'
And my sad heart is yearnin'
To hear again the song bird's weep below his tow
Won't you meet me out in the moonlight alone?

The dusky light, the day is losin'
Orchids, poppies, black eyed susan
The earth and sky that melt with flesh and bone
Won't you meet me out in the moonlight alone?

The air is thick and heavy
All along the levee
Where the geese into the countryside have flown
Won't you meet me out in the moonlight alone?

Well, I'm preachin' peace and harmony
The blessings of tranquility
Yet I know when the time is right to strike.
I take you 'cross the river, dear
You've no need to linger here
I know the kinds of things you like.

The clouds are turnin' crimson
The leaves fall from the limbs an'
The branches cast their shadows over stone
Won't you meet me out in the moonlight alone?

The boulevards of cypress trees
The masquerade of birds and bees
The petals, pink and white, the wind has blown
Won't you meet me out in the moonlight alone?

The trailing moss in mystic glow
The purple blossom soft as snow
My tears keep flowin' to the sea.
Doctor, lawyer, indian chief
It takes a thief to catch a thief
For whom does the bell toll for, love?
It tolls for you and me.

Old pulses run through my palm
The sharp hills are rising from
Yellow fields with twisted oaks that glow
Won't you meet me out in the moonlight alone.  up
