The Waterboys. The Whole of the Moon

The Whole of the Moon – The Waterboys

I pictured a rainbow

you held in your hands

I had flashes

but you saw then plan

I wondered out in the world for years

while you just stayed in your room

I saw the crescent

you saw the whole of the moon!

The whole of the moon!

You were there at the turnstiles

with the wind at 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 truths

you cut through lies

I saw the rain-dirty valley

you saw Brigadoon

I saw the crescent

you saw 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 whole of the moon!

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 reach too high

too far

Too soon

you saw 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,

Flag, rags, ferry boats,

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 a comet

blazing your trail

Too high

too far

Too soon

you saw the whole of the moon!
