I Had a Dream that the Moon Went Out

I Had a Dream that the Moon Went Out
By Artemis Rain

I had a dream that the moon went out
As soundly as I slept
I had a dream that the moon went out
And in my dream I wept

For I looked at you and the moon came up
And glistened in the sky
I looked at you and the moon came up
And we would never die

But he looked at you and the clouds rolled in
The stars did hide their light
He raised the gun and the clouds rolled in
Though the moon was shining bright

He fired the gun and the moon glowed bright
As ever in the sky
He pulled the trigger and the moon glowed bright
And you began to die

You breathed your last and I looked about
To an empty starless sky
Yes, you were dead and the moon went out
And I began to cry

I had a dream that the moon went out
And when I woke I wept
For I opened my eyes and the moon was out
In my dreams the memories crept
