Moonlight

Moonlight is the first track from ALNILAM’s new EP, Under the Sun, a collaboration with Daniel Wright. It was released as the second single May 27.

You can listen to Moonlight on Spotify.

Or you can watch this animated video by artist Chimera.

In the moonlight, in the distance       
Drums were whispering a heartbeat   
In the distance, in the moonlight       
Waves were breaking up the shore  

Across the universe   
Giant gears were turning  
And we were part of it      
Back then the constellations  
Seemed so close to me  
So full of mystery      

Barefoot down a gravel road    
A young man spoke in my direction  
With a slight Italian accent   
Shared a full moon invitation  

His voice just barely 
Loud enough to hear    
Still it lingers   
Sweetly in my ears   

All along those dusty roads   
The crickets called out to the toads   
All the way down to the coast  
The night that I remember most   

Across the universe 
Shooting stars were falling  
And so I made a wish     
Back then the constellations     
Were nameless to me    
So full of mystery   

I found you and you found me  
A makeshift disco by the sea   
Salt and seaweed in the air  
Barefoot, free, without a care     

We danced like children  
Spirits in the night     
Fearless, timeless  
Weightless in the moonlight

It washed over me
Washed over me
Over me, over me 
Over me, over me 

In the moonlight, in the distance       
Drums were whispering a heartbeat
