Perry Como - Black Moonlight lyrics

Lost in the shuffle, I've drifted an' strayed
Bruised by the city, bewildered, betrayed
With a heart heavy laden with faltering strides
I have come to the bridge, to the line that divides

What am I doing up here in a daze
As I gaze at the cold river bed
Why do I ask myself, "Shall I go back
When I seem to be going ahead"

To black moonlight
Where everything reflects your color
Darkness that is endless
Nights that leave me friendless blue

Black moonlight
You make the lights of Harlem duller
Just like me you're faded
Jaded and degraded too

Why must you send
Ebony moonbeams, depressing, distressing
Like shadows of love
That are gone?

Where will it end?
Will it spread on to the starlight, the sunlight
And darken each
Promise of dawn?

Black moonlight
I've lost all power to resist you
Madly, I await you, even though I hate you
Black, black moonlight
