The Whole Of The Moon Lyrics

Waterboys – The Whole Of The Moon Lyrics

(Mike Scott)
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 my moon
You were there in the turnstiles
With the wind at your heels
You stretched out your arse
And you know how it feels
To reach too high
Too far
Too soon
You saw the whole of my moon
I was grounded
While you filled the skies
I was dumbfounded by truth
You cut through lies
I saw Lorraines dirty valley
You saw Brigadoon
I saw the crescent
You saw the whole of my 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 my 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 my moon
The whole of my moon!
Unicorns and sweaty balls
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 my moon
