Moonlight Drive
The Doors Lyrics


Let's swim to the moon, uh-huh
Let's climb through the tide
Penetrate the evenin' that the
City sleeps to hide
Let's swim out tonight, love
It's our turn to try
Parked beside the ocean on our
Moonlight drive

Let's swim to the moon, uh-huh
Let's climb through the tide
Surrender to the waiting worlds
That lap against our side
Nothin' left open and no
Time to decide
We've stepped into a river on our
Moonlight drive

Let's swim to the moon
Let's climb through the tide
You reach your hand to hold me
But I can't be your guide
Easy, I love you as I
Watch you glide
Falling through wet forests on our
Moonlight drive, baby
Moonlight drive

Come on, baby, gonna take a little ride, down
Down by the ocean side, gonna get real close
Get real tight
Baby gonna drown tonight
Goin' down, down, down

Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
Let's climb through the tide
Penetrate the evenin' that the
City sleeps to hide

Let's swim out tonight, love
It's our turn to try
Parked beside the ocean
On our moonlight drive


Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
Let's climb through the tide
Surrender to the waiting worlds
That lap against our side

Nothin' left open
And no time to decide
We've stepped into a river
On our moonlight drive

Let's swim to the moon
Let's climb through the tide
You reach your hand to hold me
But I can't be your guide

Easy, I love you
As I watch you glide
Falling through wet forests
On our moonlight drive, baby
Moonlight drive

Come on, baby, gonna take a little ride
Down, down by the ocean side
Gonna get real close
Get real tight
Baby gonna drown tonight
Goin' down, down, down

Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
Let's climb through the tide
Penetrate the evenin' that the
City sleeps to hide
Let's swim out tonight, love
It's our turn to try
Parked beside the ocean
On our moonlight drive

Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
Let's climb through the tide
Surrender to the waiting worlds
That lap against our side

Nothin' left open
And no time to decide
We've stepped into a river
On our moonlight drive*

my ex-boyfriend used to sing this to me. we were just teenagers then. 20 years went by and we reconnected as friends. June 15th,2015, he died in his sleep of a heroin overdose. one of the last times we hung out we sang it together. No music, just a capella. This song is bittersweet to me now. I don't hear Jim's voice, I hear Nelson's.
Rest in Love my friend. You will always be forever in my heart.

@Katina Mcguirk sounds like you were his pam. I miss my "pam" too she broke my heart after 17years together. "Don't you love her as shes walking out the door"

The Doors are the greatest band of all time. Genius.

South american Metalhead

Neeeeee

Harvey Wells

It's just ridiculous that a song that came out in freaking 1967 can still sound so musically and lyrically amazing. And then there's Jim screaming toward the end. Perfection.

67 is amazing.
