The Whole of The Moon


by The Waterboys (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 the Whole of the Moon

You were there in the turnstiles, with the wind at your 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 rain dirty valleys, You saw Brigadoon
I saw the crescent,
You saw the 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 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 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
yes, 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
