“Moonlight” by Ali Gatie
Generally speaking, in Ali Gatie’s “Moonlight”, the moon is intended to be symbolic of the singer’s feeling for the woman he loves, who is also the addressee. That is his poetic way of saying that just as the moon never fails to show up nightly, so too does he wish that she were around. Indeed as revealed at the onset of the second verse, she has “left” Ali. So basically the lyrics of this song are dedicated to expressing two sentiments. One is that he does in fact, as alluded to earlier, miss her. And second is that he is convinced that no one loves her like he does.
But the fact that she is gone is also making him question the validity of the relationship in the first place. He is basically now wondering if their love was actually “real”, or did he just gas himself up into believing that this lady was indeed the one. But that being said, it is pretty clear that he is heartbroken and wishing that she comes back into his life.
