Michael Jackson "Scared Of The Moon"

This is a beautiful song on simpler times when our hearts were unedited. Imaginations went wild And believing in fairy tales was just as real as our daily routines.

This was meant to grace Thriller. But unfortunately was cut out at the last minute. My how difficult it must be to choose which Michael Jackson tracks will land on the final selection(it must be agonizing).

This song(I believe) is about a little child who's afraid of the dark. As she grows older, that childhood fear just doesn't seem to subside. Of course her fears transition from monsters to buglers who muck the unsuspected among the dark alleys. I'm interested in hearing your take. What do you think Michael Jackson was trying to communicate?

Scared of the Moon - Michael Jackson

Alone she lays waiting
Surrounded by gloom
Invaded by shadows
Painting the room
The light from the window
Cuts trough the air
And pins the child lying there
Scared of the moon

She pulls up the covers
And shivers in fright
She hides from the color
That rides on the night
The light through the window
That lights up the sky
And causes her mournful cry
Scared of the moon

There's nothing wrong
Don't be bothered they said
It's just childish fantasies
Turning her head
No need to worry
It's really too soon
But there she lies shivering
Scared of the moon

Scared of the moon
Scared of the moon
Scared of the moon
Scared of the moon

The years go by swiftly
And soon childhood ends
But life is still fearful
When evening descends
The fear of a child
Still intrudes the night
Returning on beams of light
Scared of the moon

The feeling of terror
She felt as a youth
Has turned from a fantasy
Into the truth
The moon is the enemy
Twisting her soul
And taking it's fearful tone
Scared of the moon

But now there are others
Who sit here alone
And wait for the sunlight
To brighten their gloom
Together they gather
The loners see shade
But knowing just why they're scared
Scared of the moon

Scared of the moon
Scared of the moon
Scared of the moon
Scared of the moon.....
