The moon appears regularly in Stephin Merritt's songs: [14 instances were recorded] before 69 Love Songs, and the same source identifies even more songs that mention eyes, which also appear in this song (The only stars there really are / were shining in your eyes). The sun/moon/stars symbolism is associated with heavenly, spiritual love [example].
