Face The Moon

I looked at all the women
Checking out their features
One walked a fine line
While the others drew it

One’s lips came close
One finger tripped it
One glistened in the sun
But none were coming from it

I threw a look, I faced the moon
Asked the Maker, “Where were you?”
I threw a look, faced the moon
Where were you?

As rivers run
And moonlight shines
I’ll catch her in the mirror
And in our land that time forgot

We’ll catch them close
One finger tripped it
One glistening the sun
Then you were coming from it

You threw the look, I faced the moon
Asked the Maker, “Where were you?”
We threw the look, faced the moon
Then there was you?

As rivers run
(As rivers run)
And moonlight shines
(I’ll catch her in the mirror)
I’ll catch her in the mirror
(And in our land that time forgot)
And in our land that time forgot
(We’ll catch them close, and glisten with it)
We’ll catch them close, and glisten with it

I threw the look, we faced the moon
Asked the Maker, “Where were you?”
We threw the look, I faced the moon
Where were you?

We threw the look, we faced the moon
We threw the look, faced the moon
Where were you?

As rivers run and moonlight shines
I’ll face the Maker
