SHE LIKED TO SEE HERSELF AS THE SUN

LATER SHE MADE ME INTO THE MOON

IT SOUNDED FINE TO ME

WHO WOULDN'T WANT TO BE

ILLUMINATING LOVERS OR

CONTROLLING THE SEA?

WHO WOULDN'T WANT TO BE THE MOON?

 

SUN IN MY EYES, HER BEAUTY COULD BLIND

SHE SENT ME TO THE SHADOWS EVERY NIGHT

WHEN THE REVOLUTIONS CAME I SHIVERED, THIN,

SHE ECLIPSED ME

BY THE CYCLE OF HER WHIM

WHEN SHE SAID ALL THIS

I WASN'T SO HOT ON THE MOON I WAS

NOT SO HOT ON THE MOON

 

EVERY DAY I WATCH THE WORLD GO BY

EVERY NIGHT I SEE A PLANET DIE

EVERY MORNING IS LIKE YESTERDAY

SHE IS ALWAYS HALF A WORLD AWAY

 

AND I'M JUST DIAMONDS ON THE EVERGREEN

I CAUSE THE WILD DOG TO SERENADE

BUT I CAN ALWAYS HEAR HER

IN THIS ATMOSPHERE

HER JEALOUS STAR IS TAPPING

AT THE END OF EVERY NIGHT

DO YOU WANT TO BE THE MOON? I WAS

DO YOU WANT TO BE THE MOON?
