"It's been such a crazy year. 2020 has had a lot of darkness. So in the song, I'm calling to the magical powers of the moon to set things right again." ~ Carly about Moon (Light up My Darkness)

Lyrics

Moon (Light up My Darkness)

Words & Music by Carly Emerick

Verse 1:
I lay here in the darkness
A sad sad lonely room
I count my blessings one by one
(One by one, one by one)

Lead-in:
Then there's a light that hits my window
(My window's so cold)
It shines so brightly on my soul

Chorus:
Moon, light up my darkness
I have nowhere to go
I'm hoping you could show me the way
Moon, light up my darkness
Your blue vanilla sky is shimmering in my eyes

Verse 2:
Purple shades of velvet illuminate my gloom
I feel the healing has begun 
(has begun, it has begun)

Lead-in 2:
But there's a monster in my closet
(My monster is old)
I keep him chained won't let him go

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge: 
Blue vanilla sky, blue vanilla sky

(Repeat Chorus)

Ad-lib:
Moon, light up my darkness
I'm really lucky to see you shine tonight
I'm really lucky to see you shine tonight
Moon, light up my darkness
I'll brave the morning light if you stay with me through the night
Moon, light up my darkness
