Ariana Grande - Moonlight

[Verse 1]
The sun is setting
And you're right here by my side
And the movie's playing
But we won't be watching tonight
Every look, every touch
Makes me wanna give you my heart
I be crushin' on you, baby
Stay right where you are

[Chorus]
Cause I never knew, I never knew
You could hold moonlight in your hands
'Til the night I held you
You are my moonlight
Moonlight

[Verse 2]
I kiss his fingertips
As I'm wishing he's all mine
He's giving me Elvis
With some James Dean in his eyes
Puts his lips on my neck
Makes me want to give him my body
I be fallin' for you, baby
And I just can't stop

[Chorus]
Cause I never knew, I never knew
You could hold moonlight in your hands
'Til the night I held you
You are my moonlight
Moonlight
Baby, I be fallin'
You are my moonlight
Moonlight

[Verse 3]
He's so bossy
He makes me dance
Tryna sit in the back of his whip
And just cancel my plans
Sweet like candy
But he's such a man
He knows just what it does
When he’s holding me tight
And he calls me "Moonlight" too

"Moonlight" is a slow, violin-enriched track that serves as the intro to "Dangerous Woman". It was originally intended to be title track of the album, but the album was ultimately renamed in favor of the track “Dangerous Woman.” In May 2015, Ariana Grande announced that her third studio album was on the way and confirmed to fans via Twitter that its title was "Moonlight". During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in January 2016, she announced that she changed the album title to "Dangerous Woman". From Digital Spy: "Grande eases you into her third studio album with this ‘50s-inspired sway, which blossoms with its dainty string plucks and romantic violins. But despite the twinkly production, which sounds like it was composed amongst the fluffy clouds in the sky, this isn’t reflective of what’s to come. Consider this Sandy Dee’s soaring ballad before she sexes it up with the black leggings." Ariana posted a BTS video on Instagram of the filming of the “Moonlight” music video. The music video was ultimately scrapped following her breakup with Ricky Alvarez.
