I wait till everyone’s asleepThen out into the night I creepNo one can see me nowOr hear me running, soundlesslyThe moon’s the only light I needTo search for food, young ones to feedBut as the dawn is drawing near the earth, my way’s not clearI’m trapped on the outsideMoonlight save me, moonlight save meMoonlight save me, moonlight save meUnearthly fear, it grips my skinUnearthly sound, the hunt beginsI hear excited criesBut dare not look from where I’m hidingThe multi-coloured humans rideSoon they will find me where I hideThe brown and white tormentorsBegin to howl and then I’m runningMoonlight save meI cut across the trail I left five miles beforeOne chance to throw them off my scent but I’m not sureAn elder told me it had worked sometime beforeMy heart is beating like a drumI make the ridge, but can’t go onI turn to face my deathBut nothing comes to stop me breathingDown in the clearing now I seeThey’re searching all around for meConfusion everywhereBut I am safe up here, I’ve won, I’ve won, I’ve won, I’ve won, I’ve won
