“Moonwater Bay” – by Kent Mayhew (1999)

I met her by the sea
She served the cocktails where I was hired to sing
We roamed that night on a desolate beach
As she was running from the tide
She jumped into my arms
And as the waves crashed ‘round my feet
The world stood still
I took a look around
And I knew right then, honey
I was going down

As the moon danced on the water
Suddenly the stars didn’t look so far away
Oh how they shined
Over Moonwater Bay

Chorus:
Sha La La La La
Shine, shine over Moonwater Bay
Sha La La La La
Shine, shine over Moonwater Bay
Sha La La La La
Shine, shine over Moonwater Bay

My sunlight she waved good-bye
Then nightlife opened his eyes
The skies turned from purples into blacks
And I knew right then
She was never coming back
I was so off-track
Watching the moon
Dance on the water
I’ve never seen the stars
Look so far away
As they did that night
Over Moonwater Bay

Chorus:
Sha La La La La
Shine, shine over Moonwater Bay
Sha La La La La
Shine, shine over Moonwater Bay
Sha La La La La
Shine, shine over Moonwater Bay

The silver moon was crying
With tears that shine the blackest streets
There’s some kind of romance about this place
Ask anyone and they’ll agree
And tonight it’s magic still haunts me
Then the world stood still
My head was hanging down
The rain began to cease
And I finally took a look around
To find a rainbow dancing on the water
Shining from the sky I thought could give me no peace
And as I watched it shine
I thought I heard somebody sing

Chorus:
Sha La La La La
Shine, shine over Moonwater Bay
Sha La La La La
Shine, shine over Moonwater Bay
Sha La La La La
Shine, shine over Moonwater Bay
Sha La La La La
Shine, shine over Moonwater Bay
