The Whole of the Moon
The Waterboys Lyrics


I pictured a rainbow
You held it in your hands
I had flashes
But you saw the plan
I wandered 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

Hmm, you were there in 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 truth
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

(The whole of the moond) with a torch in your pocket and the wind at your heels
You climbed on the ladder and you know how it feels to get too high
Too far
Too soon
You saw the whole of the moon
The whole of the moon, hey yeah!

Unicorns and cannonballs, palaces and piers
Trumpets, towers and tenements
Wide oceans full of tears
Flags, rags ferryboats
Scimitars and scarves
Every precious dream and vision
Underneath the stars, yes, 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

You just knew
I sighed
But you swooned, I saw the crescent
You saw the whole of the moon
The whole of the moon

Blazing your trail too high
Too far
Too soon
You saw the whole of the moon

Dedicated this song to my half after she passed away, miss her everyday. She had a vision for so many things and made me the best version of myself and I will always be grateful to her for that.

That's the beauty of real music it has the ability to reach us on an emotional and mental level because it has a story to tell and wen you can't hear it from real music you are missing something wonderful 🎶 ❤

I suppose I need to ask - who's listening in '22?

Tremendous stuff - live vocals over a backing track, very odd for an official video; but I'm not complaining.
