There Goes The Moon



There Goes The Moon [2010] Love Song
There are plenty of other moons in the sky
A mellow Metallica ballad of a lovelorn lunatic.

They promised me the moon
And like the moon she was cold
She was desolate and distant
And blessed with a light not her own


They promised me the moon
And around me she spun
But her love waxed and waned and
One casual eclipse she was gone


But oh, how she drew me to her light
And oh, how she tugged at my heart like a rising tide


There’s plenty of other moons in the sky
One is waiting for me, silent as light
But morning arrives too soon
There goes the moon


They promised me the moon
To love and lose was my part
But can you say you’ve lost somebody
If you still know where they are?


They promised me the moon
And like the moon she was cold
She was desolate and distant
And blessed with a light not her own


I know I was irrational and insane
But oh, how she toyed with the tide inside my brain


There’s plenty of other moons in the sky…


There goes the moon
They call it ‘the moon’
But it’s only the moon of the earth
Only a moon
Not the brightest or best
But she filled up my sky ’till I just couldn’t see that…


There’s plenty of other moons in the sky…


Mars has two Pluto has three
There must be a moon out there just for me
But morning arrives too soon
There goes the moon

  1. I love the chords. It’s clever how you use the moon to express a relationship (not her own light, tide, cold etc). The last part is a nice unexpected surprise.

    Thanks Rob – it was kind of a lyrical experiment that turned out OK.
