Lyrics to Popular Moon Songs


The Whole Of The Moon

by the Waterboys (Mike Scott)

from "This Is The Sea"

Listen to The Whole of the Moon (Midi Format)

I pictured a rainbow
you held it in your hands
I had flashes
but you saw the plan
I wandered out in the world for years
while you just stayed in your room
I saw the crescent
you saw the whole of the moon


you were there in the turnstiles
with the wind at your heels
you stretched for the starts
and you know how it feels
to reach too high
too far
too soon
you saw the whole of the moon


I was grounded
while you filled the skies
I was dumbfounded by truth
you cut through lies
I saw the rain dirty valley
you saw Brigadoon
I saw the crescent
you saw the whole of the moon


I spoke about wings
you just flew
I wondered I guessed and I tried
you just knew
I sighed
...but you swooned!
I saw the crescent
you saw the whole of the moon


with a torch in your pocket
and the wind at your heels
you climbed on the ladder
and you know how it feels
to get too high
too far too soon
you saw the whole of the moon
the whole of the moon!


Unicorns and cannonballs
palaces and piers
trumpets towers and tenements
wide oceans full of tears
flags rags ferryboats
scimitars and scarves
every precious dream and vision
underneath the stars
you climbed on the ladder
with the wind in your sails
you came like comet
blazing your trail
too high too far too soon
you saw the whole of the moon

by Nick Drake (featured in the Cabrio commercial)

I saw it written and I saw it say
Pink moon is on its way
And none of you stand so tall
Pink moon gonna get you all
It's a pink moon
It's a pink, pink, pink, pink, pink moon.

Hi darlin' ! How's the weather?

Say baby, is that cold better now ?

Oh I'm sorry, is there someone there with you??

right !

to say

I badly need a friend...or it's the end.


Now, when I look at the cloud's across the moon.

Here in the night I just hope and pray that soon.

Oh baby, you'll hurry home to me.


Hi darlin', the kids say they love you.

Hey baby, is everything fine with you?

Please forgive me, but I'm trying not to cry...


Ooooh...I've had a million different offers on the


But I just stay right here at home.

I don't think that I can take it anymore this crazy
