There was a moon out in space,
But a cloud drifted over its face;
You kissed me and went on your way
The night we called it a day.

I heard the song of the spheres 
Like a minor lament in my ears;
I hadn't the heart left to pray 
The night we called it a day.

Soft through the dark, the hoot of an owl in the sky;
Sad though his song, no bluer was he than I.

The moon went down, stars were gone,
But the sun didn't rise with the dawn;
There wasn't a thing left to say
The night we called it a day.
