Moonshine

Katies sixteenth single ‘Moonshine’ is the second single to be released from her fifth album ‘Secret Symphony’.
It was written by Fran Healy of ‘Travis’ and released on May 21st 2012 as a download-only single via iTunes and Amazon.

Mike Batt wrote of the video; “We made a fun little video – not intended to compete with some of the early ones – in fact it was shot and edited in-house for only a few hundred quid.

We already had live footage of her and didn’t feel a big budget video was appropriate; it doesn’t pretend to be Gone With The Wind”.

“We shot the whole thing as a green screen shoot, just in my front room, using a big roll of green paper suspended from a couple of poles, and a “red” camera on tracks”.

01. Moonshine

Well my eyes are closed, but my heart’s on fire
Because the clock is approaching the midnight hour
I leave my window open, all the lights are out
And from the darkest night comes the lightest shout

Moonshine, moonshine moon
The cow jumped over the moonshine moon
Moonshine, moonshine moon
I’ll love you tonight under the moonshine moon

Well as we walk through the streets, there’s no-one nowhere
And our nightgown’s trailing and our feet are bare
I don’t know where we’re going and I don’t care
Just as long as you’re here and the moon’s up there

Moonshine, moonshine moon
The cow jumped over the moonshine moon
Moonshine, moonshine moon
I’ll love you tonight under the moonshine moon

Now all the little boys and girls around the town
Dreaming through the darkness till the moon goes down
But me and my baby gonna be up all night
Dancing under the moonlight

Moonshine, moonshine moon
I’ll love you tonight under the moonshine moon
Moonshine, moonshine moon
The cow jumped over the moonshine moon
Moonshine, moonshine, moonshine, moonshine moon
