Orange Moon
Erykah Badu Lyrics


Mmh, I'm an orange moon
I'm an orange moon
Reflecting the light of the sun

Ah, aah aah, ah, aah aah
Many nights he was alone
Many, many, many nights
His light was too bright so they turned away
And he stood alone
Every night and every day
Then he turned to me
He saw his reflection in me
And he smiled at me, when he turned to me
Then he said to me

How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how good it is

Ah, aah aah, ah, aah aah
I'm an orange moon
I'm brighter than before
Brighter than ever before
I'm an orange moon and I shine so bright
'Cause I reflect the light of my sun, ooh
I praise the day, he turned my way
And smiled at me
He, gets to smile and I get to be orange, da da da do dee

How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how good it is

(Oh) shine so bright
(Oh) he ruled the day, I ruled the night (oh)
Shine, shine, shine (Oh)

How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how good it is
How good he is, how God he is
How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how God he is
How good it is, how good it is
How good he is, how God he is
How good it is, how good it is

I'm an orange moon
I'm brighter than before, brighter
Uh mh, uh mhhm
Reflecting the light of the sun
Ooh
Smile at me

I'm an orange moon
I'm an orange moon
Reflecting the light of the sun
Many nights he was alone
Many, many, many nights
His light was so bright that they turned away
And he stood alone
Every night and every day
Then he turned to me
He saw his reflection in me
And he smiled at me when he turned to me
Then he said to me
How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how good it is
I'm an orange moon
I'm brighter than before
Brighter than ever before
I'm an orange moon and I shine so bright
'cause I reflect the light of my sun
I praise the day, he turned my way
And smiled at me
He gets to smile and I get to be orange, that I love to be
How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how good it is
Shine so bright
(oh...)
He ruled the day, I ruled the night
(oh...)
Shine, shine, shine
(oh...)
How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how good it is
How good he is, how god is
How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how god is
How good it is, how good it is
I'm an orange moon
I'm brighter than before, brighter
Reflecting the light of the sun
Smile at me

I'm an Orange Moon
I'm an Orange Moon
Reflecting the light of the sun

Many nights he was alone
Many, many, many nights
His light was so bright that they turned away
And he stood alone 
Every night and every day
Then he turned to me 
He saw his reflection in me 
And he smiled at me when he turned to me 
Then he said to me

How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how good it is

I'm an Orange Moon
I'm brighter than before
Brighter than ever before
I'm an Orange Moon and I shine so bright
Cause I reflect the light of my sun
I praise the day, he turned my way 
And smiled at me
He gets to smile and I get to be orange, that I love to be

How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how good it is

(Oh...)
Shine so bright
(Oh...)
He ruled the day, I ruled the night
(Oh...)
Shine, shine, shine
(Oh...)

How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how good it is
How good he is, how god is
How good it is, how good it is
How good it is, how god is
How good it is, how good it is

I'm an orange moon 
I'm brighter than before, brighter
Reflecting the light of the sun
Smile at me

This amazing song inspired me to write something about the atmosphere it brings to me....
My old friend
I crave for your soul
I have met you in my mind
Joined you with my heart
Now I'm looking for your body
To rejoin me in this life,
or another
I know you and you know me,
already.

The sun equates to masculine energy. The moon equates to feminine energy. When the moon is orange it basically reflects an equal balance of masculine and feminine, or metaphorically, the man and women coming together in a beautiful relationship 😍🙌🏾

@julian Holman How can you possibly say that the moon has no energy when it's the moon that changes the tides! It's the moon that changes the seasons. The moon changes everything...and it's does so every 2-3days.

Seriously African american people are so talented beyond measure. Your existence on this earth is truly a blessing and thank you for making meaningful content in everything you create <3 (if I'm being racist someone let me know)

Christina Graham

This isn't racist

DIE SCHOLLE

@Thelonious Dunc there is No Good racism

Sherry Cann

Well I dont find it racist maybe a little bias but with all good intent. Replace African American with "white"; now do you feel the same way? I'm a white American female that appreciates ALL talented artists like erykah badu , music doesn't see color
