Girl, you make me wanna talk
But, G-d, it gets so hard to say the things I mean
I really feel like dancin’
But I can’t stand ‘cause you’ll knock me off my feet

If I had a recipe for your love
I’d even brew it in the bathtub
And if to love you was a crime
I’d be guilty every time
You are my moonshine

Sometimes you make me feel like tearin’ through this town
In the middle of the night
Runnin’ up into the mountains
And howlin’ out against the silver sky
It’s something dangerous and wild
And it’s just achin’ to break free
Your beauty baits the beast in me
You are my moonshine

So don’t take it away
Don’t take it away
Don’t take it away

Truth be told, I’m just a boy
Lyin’ on his roof and starin’ up at space
Someday I dream I’ll fly to you
Someday I dream that I might touch your face
My heart is burnin’ like a star
‘Cause heaven don’t seem all that far
You are all my wildest dreams
Come reflectin’ back at me
You are my moonshine
You are my moonshine
You are my moonshine
