Six p.m., Annie's looking out her window again
Watching another day coming to an end
She sits in a metal chair
Rolling those wheels going nowhere
But she never grumbles or complains
She never grumbles or complains
She knows what you gotta do to get through the night
She knows what you gotta do to get through the night

Living on fantasy and moonbeams
You can look at the sun as long as you want
But be careful when you look at the moon
Fantasy and moonbeams

Why don't you give me some time?
I feel like I'm losing my mind
Living in fantasy
Reality got too strong for me
I'm spinning a web of silky, golden thread
Sometimes it makes me a crown
Sometimes it ties me up and holds me down


Six a.m., Annie's looking out her window again
Laughing and smiling at the pouring rain
She puts me to shame
Moving my legs going nowhere
She never grumbles or complains
She knows what you gotta do to get ya through the night
(You do what you gotta do to get through the night)


The moon, my friend
He romances me again and again
Moonbeams penetrate me
Reality got too strong for me
You take the sun, I'll take the moon
You take the sun, the moon is mine
Fantasy and moonbeams

I really like the overall feel of the track. Very dramatic and quite intense. Really impressed with the vocal arrangement. Sounds retro but has a modern feel. I definitely could here this composition on film or gritty TV !

I really appreciate the unique qualities to this track. It really stands out as a song "in it's own
hemisphere" & i mean that as a compliment!!!

Excellent recording, sounds very professional. The rhythm section and piano sound very nice together and crisp in the mix with the vocals.
Very nice vocals also, nice tone and feeling in the delivery.

nice instrumental stabs

Very professional sound. First class performances from all the musicians and a great vocal to match. Well arranged and well recorded too.

Great drum tracking. Very soulful. Kinda has a cool Fleetwood Mac Feel. Nice vocal delivery. I really like that Pad in Background. Great tune!

Vocals are excellent.
