Harvest Moon
Blue Öyster Cult Lyrics


This place has a history
The Spaniards settled here
They burned the town and fields
They moved away from here
My grandma often told me
She knew it peaceful here
The war took all the vigor
War took the best from here

Ah ah ah ah when the wind turns
Ah ah ah ah and blows the leaves from the trees
Ah ah ah ah harvest moon

I see the days grow shorter
I feel the nights grow cold harvest moon
Young people feelin' restless
Old people feelin' old Harvest moon
I sense the darkness clearer
I feel a presence here Harvest moon
A change in the weather
I love this time of year harvest moon

The Cobys worked that valley
They gave that land a go
They built a thriving business
Then came that early snow
They lost their livestock that year
They lost their sheep and goats
They sold the farm in springtime
Went south to work the boats

Ah ah ah ah when the wind turns
Ah ah ah ah and blows the leaves from the trees
Ah ah ah ah harvest moon

I see the days grow shorter
I feel the nights grow cold Harvest moon
Young people feelin' restless
Old people feelin' old Harvest moon
I sense the darkness clearer
I feel a presence here harvest moon
A change in the weather
I love this time of year harvest moon

Ten years in this farmhouse
Ten years come this May
My simple needs are covered
Since grandma passed away
Long time since there's been trouble
That's what the people say
I told the new man when I
Sold the farm today

Ah ah ah ah when the wind turns
Ah ah ah ah and blows the leaves from the trees
Ah ah ah ah harvest moon

I sense the darkness clearer
I feel a presence here harvest moon
A change in the weather
I feel some evil here harvest moon
I hear some frightful noises
I don't go out at night Harvest moon
Since Bobrow's youngest daughter
Disappeared from sight Harvest moon

I know they'll find her some day
They find them all that way harvest moon
After the thaw in springtime
The snow melts away Harvest moon
I see the days grow shorter
I feel the nights grow cold harvest moon
Young people feelin' restless
Old people feelin' old harvest moon

This song brings to mind H.P. Lovecraft's "The Color Out of Space" for me...

Will Unscripted

Have you seen the movie with Nick Cage in it..? Came out this year or last can't remember, but it's crazy. A movie that will stick with you for awhile..

Jason Fox

Personnally, this also reminds me of the game Night in the Woods, but this is probably not as coincidental as it seems.

Eric Peacock

Now on their new album, they have a song, The Alchemist.

Jules Winter

Definitely. I heard the song beforehand. When I got around to reading lovecraft’s novels this one immediately stuck out to me

Robert Krakowski

A deep powerful song. Nobody makes songs like this anymore.

Colin Ritter

Plenty of people make music like this still, you just need to broaden your horizons. A singer named Jesca Hoop writes songs from her dream journal that have equally weird, if slightly more whimsical, lyrics.

fauque you're Monitering systems

Sure we do. We make music for free.
Because life is free.........time is all we are truly granted.
Forever on the edge of infinity, everything I have ever done was brand new.

MonKeiBusiness

Every autumn I come back to this song.

Andre Mazer

Southern hemisphere Autumn starting in a couple of hours. Had to come here.
