Someone keeps callin'
You pick it up, and you're talkin' real low
I watch the rain fallin'

An' said you would love me
And I'd never cry
But I've cried so much
Now the moon's turning blue
Baby
Tell me, what else can I do

And the shadows grow longer
I'm watching this house burning down

But all this heartache's just wearing me down
An' I remember we were happy
An' all our days baby, they found their time

Cause you hung the moon
In that big empty sky
An' said you would love me
And I'd never cry
But I've cried so much
Now the moon's turning blue
Baby
Tell me, what else can I do?

Cause you hung the moon
In that big empty sky
An' said you would love me
And I'd never cry
Honey, I've cried so much
Now the moon's turning blue
Baby
Tell me, what else can I do?
Baby
Tell me, what else can I do?
