Say Goodbye to the Moon: A lonely lament inspired by the fact the moon’s orbit is moving about 1.5 inches away from Earth each year. (A dark ballad in the style of Pink Floyd and the Moody Blues.)

Lyrics

Say Goodbye to the Moon
©jim ocean10/10

They say the sun will be done one day
And all of this will be burned away
Even the moon is a fickle thing
She’s a tease
She’s a runaway

Something happened long ago
Between the Earth and the Moon
Since then she’s been packing her bags to go
S he will fade like a rising balloon

(Chorus)
But oh, how she shines so bright
Oh, yes she shines so bright on you and I
Say Goodbye to the Moon
Oo, Oo

The Moon’s grown tired of our lies
Weary of blood and of songs
Lovers, tides and a vampire’s eyes will look
But she’ll be gone…

She’s seen love live like a fugitive
She’s seen love hid from the sun
She’s seen love being held captive
She’s seen love live on the run…

(Chorus)
But oh, how she shines so bright
Oh, yes she shines so bright on you and I
Say Goodbye to the Moon

Just like the Moon orbits the Earth
Love circles the heart
So if the Moon’s going away
A little each day
Don’t let love leave your heart
Like a light that goes dark
What do you say?
Oo, Oo
Oo, Oo

So when you look at the Moon tonight
Shining above
Hold onto it with all your might
And don’t let go of your love
Don’t let go of your love.

(Chorus)
But oh, how it shines so bright
Oh, yes it shines so bright on you and I
Say Goodbye to the Moon
Say Goodbye to the Moon

Oo, Oo

Say Goodbye to the Moon
Say Goodbye to the Moon
Say Goodbye to the Moon
