Blue moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

Blue moon
You knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a pray for
Someone I really could care for

Blue moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

Blue moon
Without a love of my own
