Wolf to Moon

quite frankly i find
that you're out of your mind, this you know
but never before have i been quite so sure of my love
there could come a bang like the universe sang
when it first opened its mouth
but til a new sun you're the one i will be dreaming of

hooray, hooray, there may come a day
when the wolf turns his back to the moon
and shakes his head and chuckles instead
but i fear it will not be real soon

quite rightly they claim
if i just dropped your name i'd be healed
but who wants a cure anyhow anymore
when his pain's all that proves he can feel
there could come a glow casting shadows below
like a match scratching a spark
but til a new light breaks the night
it's the moon, it's the dark

hooray, hooray, there may come a day
when the wolf turns his back to the moon
and shakes his head and chuckles instead
but i fear it will not be real soon

my moon, no pioneer flags in the breeze
my moon, just flying here dragging the seas
my moon, full of herself at times
my moon, far out of reach always

tinseltown's calling you find it appalling, this i know
but picture your eyes on a 15-foot rise 'bove the floor
i'd pay for a ticket just to come in and picket the show
for up with the stars where they are
you'd eclipse them no more

hooray, hooray, there may come a day
when the wolf turns his back to the moon
and shakes his head and chuckles instead
but i fear it will not be real soon
no i fear it will not be real soon
