       Under the moon you go running
       for the man you call your lover.
       And you'll find out that he's floating
       in the Devil's sacred water.
       And your sore heart won't condone it
       while your heavy mind is weak.
       And you'll secretly be crying
       while you're acting so discreet.

       Chorus:
       My hat's off to you my friend
       he's running round but you find him again.
       you're moon running in your loyal trend
       while I'm here dying for you to leave him

       So you search outside your crying
       to bring him back again.
       Smoke filled rooms are the climate
       you'll find him hiding in.
       And you know he could be lying
       sweet words that smother sorrow.
       inside his eyes he is smiling
       cause you'll be with him tommorrow.

       And you're sure he'll make some changes
       cause he shams a happy face.
       But you wind up turning pages
       in the history book you hate.
       And you find yourself moon running
       chasing visions while you're able
       while you're tryin to live a legend
       from some ancient fairytale.

       Chorus:
       My hat's off to you my friend
       he's runnin round but you find him again
       You're moon runnin in your loyal trend.
       While I'm here dying for you to leave him.

I love reading your songs outloud .. they rock... you rock ...wayy cool ET

We wish ourselves beautiful,
we cry in the night.
Its not the love you fear ...
its the fall from the height.

PT dear heart, the list for that cd just got longer, absolutely excellent work love. I really love your style, and when you sing like this PT love you cannot be surpassed.
Truly a first class song, hey can't you sing it to me?
Absolutely superb
Take care love and warm stuff

Take back the hope you gave,- I claim
Only a memory of the same

Wow a poet and a musican. what talent you have, I too am curious to hear the backing track. I am imagining a kind of Nick Cave and the bad seeds vibe, could be because one of Nick's cds is playing on my stereo at the moment. Well what ever the music as a lyric it is damn good.

where black will never meet white

ETHome~
Marvelously done.

'So you search outside your crying
to bring him back again. '


What a touching blue thought.

Thanks so much Charisma for the comment I appreciate it so much.

Thanks Janet for the encouraging words you are always such an inspiration to me.

Thanks Paula for the sweet words I really am so very glad to hear from you!

Marsha it's good to know I'll have another sale for this CD and I always love your comments.

Brian I've never heard the group but I know for sure that they will have thought provoking lyrics if you listen to them. Thanks!

Thanks Interloper for the comment I appreciate it so much!

Thank you Irish Rose and yes you're right sweet sounding words can be deceptive!

Suthern Thanks for the comments and that was one of my favorite lines when I was composing this piece.

Maureen it's good to hear from you also it's been too long and thanks for the kind words!

Martie that's such a nice compliment coming from you thanks so much!

Marge I see you are still the same talented exuberant writer and I always love the upbeat nature of your comments....thanks!
