Moonlight of Your Room

Check out the “Essential Joe Pug” Playlist on Spotify!


You don’t have to love me to prove yourself right
People can change, it don’t mean that you lied
I’m broken in half but I’ll sleep the night through
Instead of standing guard in the moonlight of your room

I followed your footsteps they led to St. Paul
I taught you to smoke and you taught me to cough
And I bought you a ring but you thought it too soon
Then I turned to stone in the moonlight of your room

The streetlights are golden on my empty hands
What make a good boy don’t quite make him a man
These chains look so weak in the late afternoon
But they hold me fast in the moonlight of your room
