moon

As I stand here in wonder, surrounded by a sapphire sky
With you hand-in-hand and arm-in-arm, heart-to-heart and eye-to-eye
All the stars will turn around us, year by year, day by day
And up here with the moon, things just seem to go that way

I have been afraid to love, and I have closed and locked that door
I've pretended to know, only death lies waiting nothing more
When the whole world moves beneath us, you turn to me and say
Up here with the moon, things just seem to go that way

In the bright silver rivers and in the forests deep as night
Everything is movement, and darkness grows the seeds of light
There is stillness in the motion, balance in gray
And up here with the moon, things just seem to go that way

As I wake up in the morning, and I scribble out my dream
I see living's neither black nor white, it's always something in between
And I love you, I love you, I love you! year by year, day by day
And up here with the moon, things just seem to go that way
Up here with the moon, things just seem to go that way
