Thanks, Ben.

Could the line in Tom Waits' "Shore Leave", about how "The same moon outside over this Chinatown fair could look down on Illinois, and find you there" is a reference to "I see the moon and the moon sees me / The moon sees the somebody I want to see"?

Is = be?

"Somewhere out there, beneath the pale moonlight/ Someone's thinking of me, and loving me tonight"?

Yes, "be".
