They’re gonna make it together

Another song the Spirit of God uses to minister to hearts this night…..Moonlighting – they’re leaving everything, they’re losing all their friends, it’s frightening….

Moonlighting

Leo Sayer

He sees her at the same time every night
At the Mexican discotheque
She gives him French kisses
He gives her French cigarettes

They sit at the same table every time
The lights are low but their eyes shine
Just digging the music from those sweet soul bands
She keeps him outta fights holds on to his hand

He whispers slowly: “Tonight’s the night”
Months of planning so it’s gotta be right
Under the table her bag is bursting at the seams
She made sure to bring everything

Moonlighting
They’re leaving everything
Moonlighting
They’re losing all their friends
Moonlighting
It’s the only way
It’s frightening
But it means they’ll stay
Together
They’re gonna make it together

His blue Morris van is parked in an alley
Just by Montague Street
His friend Eddie he did the re-spray
So he couldn’t drive it all last week

And it cost most of the money that he had saved up
To pay Eddie’s receipt
But he figures it’s worth it ’cause the disguise is a must
When they go missing they’re gonna look for the van first

She whispers slowly: “It’ll be alright
I took some cash from my building society
And my monthly cheque came in just right”
If only they knew they were giving it away

Moonlighting
They’re leaving everything
Moonlighting
They’re losing all their friends
Moonlighting
It’s the only way
It’s frightening
But it means they’ll stay
Together
They’re gonna make it together

9:15 Monday morning at the printing works
The boss notices someone’s not clocked in
And the water department of the council offices has a message
That Mrs. Park’s daughter is missing

Meanwhile the Carlisle turn-off of the M6 Motorway
Drinking cold black coffee eating hot cupcakes
She stares at him with his beard unshaved
Wonders at his powers of staying awake

He whispers slowly “You did just fine”
They shared the driving all through the night
She laughs “My mother will have lost her mind
We’re only ten miles to Gretna, they’re three hundred behind”

Moonlighting
They’re leaving everything
Moonlighting
They’re losing all their friends
Moonlighting
It’s the only way
It’s frightening
But it means they’ll stay
Together
They’re gonna make it together

Moonlighting
They’re leaving everything
Moonlighting
They’re losing all their friends
Moonlighting
It’s the only way
It’s frightening
But it means they’ll stay
Together
They’re gonna make it together

Proverbs 16:9
A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.
1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
