From the albums David Poe and Love Is Red

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?
