​Sun / Moon

This song is by Eric Burdon & War and appears on the album The Black-Man's Burdon (1970).

Used to tear me apart
But now it keeps me together

It used to tear me apart
But now it keeps me together, yeah.

I've got the sun on one breast
And I have the moon on the other

Oh, oh sun or moon
How beautiful you are

Oh, sun or moon
How beautiful you are

With your hot and with your cool
I know I could travel far

How far can you take me?
To the heavens above?

How far can you take me?
Can you take me to the heavens above?

I don't believe you can take me anywhere
Because I'm lost, I'm lost, without my love.

I'm lost without my love
Play the blues for me
Play the blues for me, yeah

In my youth, I foolishly give direction
Burning myself out
In every direction
In every direction

But it is heaven to know
That no matter how many times I make a wrong move
I will not receive your rejection

Oh, sun or moon
How beautiful you are
How beautiful you are
One is hot, and the other is cold

No wonder we all go through
The same damn changes:
Hot. Cold. Left. Right. Black. White. Day and night.
Wrong and right.
Wrong and right.
Day and night.
Hot and cold.
Black and white.
Day and night.
Hot and cold.
Black and white.

No wonder we all go through the same changes.
Them same old changes.

The sun goes up.
The moon goes down.
Shine on brightly.
Shine on brightly.

It used to tear me apart
But now it keeps me together, yes it does.
It used to tear, tear me apart
But now, it keeps me together, babe, together, babe, together, babe, together, baby, mmmm.

I got the sun on one breast
And the moon on the other, mmm.

Sun or moon,
How beautiful you are.
