teenage love ballad, a litle ragged with age

Lyrics

Underneath the Moon

V1
under the stars
I think of us
hearing those words
of tender trust
to relive …
relive our love

V2
under the quilt
I reach for you
searching for warmth
that we once knew
to carry…
carry me through…

C1
underneath the moon
all alone in my room
you are right there…
next to me
underneath the moon

V3
under the sheets
I touch gently
sparking a flame
that comforts me
to nourish…
nourish my dreams….

C2
underneath the moon
alone in my room
you are right there…
completely …
underneath the moon

B
over my control
the night guides the dreams
of my heart
and without my consent
my dreams take my heart
back to you

C1
underneath the moon
all alone in my room
you are right there…
next to me
underneath the moon

C2
underneath the moon
alone in my room
you are right there…
completely …
underneath the moon

Oh, all the longing and longing really penetrates to the listener's heart and soul. What a great song both musically and lyrically. Superbly performed.

A great song and collaboration. The chorus is very good. There is certainly an Orbison feel to this. It's very evocative.

Beautiful song...sounds like a classic played solo acoustically...so tenderly done and all the better for it...love the lyrics by @kahlo2013 and this treatment of them by @billwhite51 👌

The repeating of "under the ___" works really well, particularly when contrasted with the "over the ..." in the bridge. Performance is packed with longing and regret, as it should be, and I like when your voice gets higher in the bridge. I get a 50s vibe, maybe because of "Under the Boardwalk."

Ah, I've got an "under the moon" -themed song's lyrics written that will likely drop next week. There's just something about the moon that inspires the most romantic stuff ever--like these lyrics. And nobody can "howl at the moon" like Bill--another heartfelt performance, my friend! Great collab, you two!

@atitlan - you're so right - I can hear Elvis singing this, too. Nice sentimental ballad!

Wow, such a nice ballad! Tender and full of emotion. Great collab!

This has the feel of a classic rock 'n' roll era ballad - I could imagine it being sung by Elvis. A compelling vocal performance from you on this one and a classic set of lyrics from @kahlo2013 - I particularly liked the repeated word leading into the last line of the verses 'to relive ... relive our love' etc.
