Tonight I feel a chill in the air
As cold as that look on your face
I hear what you're saying but coming from you
Goodbye seems so out of place
Now how can you stand there and honestly say
There never wee any real promises made

Chorus:

The moon is my witness
The stars will agree
They all heard you promise
You'd always love me
I know that it's true
But it's hard to believe
You lied to the moon
The stars and me

And what about all of those warm tender nights
Did they mean nothing to you
And where are the feelings I thought that we shared
Or have you forgotten them too
Did you think I could just put your memory behind
When your words are still so very clear in my mind

Chorus:

The moon is my witness
The stars will agree
They all heard you promise
You'd always love me
I know that it's true
But it's hard to believe
You lied to the moon
The stars and me

The moon is my witness
The stars will agree
They all heard you promise
You'd always love me
I know that it's true
But it's hard to believe
You lied to the moon
The stars and me

I know that it's true
But it's hard to believe
You lied to the moon
The stars and me
You lied
