• The Whole Of The Moon

    Music & lyrics by The Waterboys

    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
    you just stayed in your room
    I saw the crescent
    You saw the whole of the moon
    The whole of the moon...

    You were there in the turnstiles
    with the wind at your heels
    you stretched for the stars
    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 lone empty 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
    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 a comet
    blazing your trail
    too high, too far, too soon
    You saw the whole of the moon !
