Allday – Moon Song lyrics

[Intro]

I’m the moon and I’ll be

I’m the moon and I’ll be

I’m the moon and I’ll be

I’m the moon and I’ll be

[Verse 1]

I think I might have saw a mermaid

And she’s so perfect in the worst way

I was skipping stones on the lake

My mum told me not to be home late

I told her I was early for tomorrow

All I needed was a treasure map I could follow

And I would be there in the morning

As the fog lifted and the sun brought the warm in

I would catch the night when it fell

And only listen to the inside of a seashell

There were icicles on the branches

And silence when the night is at its calmest

I would lie down among the grasses

With the dew seeping through my pyjamas

And I would take advice from the moon

And he always told me the same thing too, he’d say

[Hook]

I’m the moon and I’ll be

Always watching over you smiling

Just look up and gaze at me

Time never changes me

You’re all embracing big moon

I’m the moon and I’ll be

Always watching over you smiling

Just look up and gaze at me

Time never changes me

You’re all embracing big moon

[Verse 2]

I think I might have saw dark clouds

When it rains, cup my chest, pour my heart out

I mad a raft that I floated to the ocean on

I dug a hole and I slept through a snow storm

‘Cause I remember when you were naked next to me

You eating an apple, me breathing heavily

You definitely had me open like sesame

But we aren’t the same and we just can’t pretend to be

If I am spinning a globe on my finger

Trying to get warm to the bone before winter

But lately her wind doesn’t shake me

I’m still warm from the thrill of escaping

I took the road to far away, I ran away

But I couldn’t breathe so I had to come back to stay

And I will take advice from the moon

And I hope that he tells me the same thing too, he’ll say

[Hook]

I’m the moon and I’ll be

Always watching over you smiling

Just look up and gaze at me

Time never changes me

You’re all embracing big moon

I’m the moon and I’ll be

Always watching over you smiling

Just look up and gaze at me

Time never changes me

You’re all embracing big moon

[Verse 3]

I think I might have saw eternity

He told me that he didn’t have a girl for me

He sat me down and told me life is regret

I knew it in my heart but I was trying to deny it

I could fill up a cup from all the times that I wept

And fill up an arena with the lies that I made

I felt horrible, I felt like a lost soul

I sat in the dirt trying to turn into a fossil

Caught my reflection in the still water

I saw a stranger looking up at me in real horror

But I found solace in his pained eyes

So I went and built a kingdom in the grey skies

Exhaled my stresses into the evening

I was so relieved when I finally grieved in

I went and took advice from the moon

And he told me the same thing he always does too, he said

[Hook]

I’m the moon and I’ll be

Always watching over you smiling

Just look up and gaze at me

Time never changes me

You’re all embracing big moon

I’m the moon and I’ll be

Always watching over you smiling

Just look up and gaze at me

Time never changes me

You’re all embracing big moon
