Sonny got caught in the moonlight
A wanted man with a haunted heart
Sonny found out the hard way

Playing for keeps, loser weeps
He said he'd come back when the lion sleeps

Struck by lightning, the fire is dying
And she called out your name
Sudden thunder, the sky is crying
Can't tell the tears from the rain

Sonny got caught in the moonlight
Paint graffiti on the subway wall
Sonny got lost in the blue night
