Big Country - Take You To The Moon Lyrics




It’s 3 A.M. I’m going home
I watch the white lines pass alone
There is no moon so I just drive
I feel like the last man alive

I find a voice on the radio
It sounds like someone I used to know
He sends out songs that are sad and slow
For us with nowhere else to go

That’s when I get to crying
And crying never makes no sense
When too much has gone on for it to ever be coincidence

Who’s gonna take you to the moon, who’s gonna take you to the stars
Who’s gonna wait around for you, who’s gonna bring you back from Mars
I’m gonna take you to the moon , I’m gonna show you ’round the stars
But if I take you to the moon will you come back the way you are

If absence makes the heart grow fond
Why does my presence seem so wrong
If I am here and you are gone
I wonder what it is I’ve done
That’s when I get to crying
And crying never makes no sense
When too much has gone on for it to ever be coincidence

Who’s gonna take you to the moon, who’s gonna take you to the stars
Who’s gonna wait around for you, who’s gonna bring you back from Mars
I’m gonna take you to the moon , I’m gonna show you ’round the stars
But if I take you to the moon will you come back the way you are

We keep our secrets to ourselves
We leave those lies for someone else
We rise above what we used to be
Don’t get discouraged easily
That’s when there’s no more crying
’Cause crying never makes no sense
When too much has gone on for it to ever be coincidence

Who’s gonna take you to the moon, who’s gonna take you to the stars
Who’s gonna wait around for you, who’s gonna bring you back from Mars
I’m gonna take you to the moon , I’m gonna show you ’round the stars
But if I take you to the moon will you come back the way you are

I’m gonna take you to the moon , I’m gonna show you ’round the stars
But if I take you to the moon will you come back the way you are

    David Hoy

    Keep looking back to the 80's. You'll Catch Up. You already have EXCELLENT taste in Music. Look up Honeymoon Suite, Charlie Sexton, Andy Taylor. You' ll be AMAZED with the amount of EXCELLENT music from that era.

  14. Andrew Costello

    An absolutely fantastic song. Thanks Stuart.

  15. Aaron Storts

    I'm 19 and I first heard big country in 4th grade, and today was the first I've heard this song. the lyrics are so true, I had someone in my life and I treated her like no other "took her to the moon" and helped her through alot of things and she left a different person. it's a sad thing how people change, but life goes on and things happen. God bless Stuart's music.

    Sadowsky1965

    Life is not fair mate. Go ahead, listening Stuart's music !!

  20. Richard David

    A lot of people are re-discovering Big County and Stuart Adamson. Stuart was brilliant. Life's not fair.

    Carl Bewley

    I'm doing my bit to spread the word Richard! Stuart has been with me since I was 13 years old ...a lifetime nearly with the guy. If only the world really knew ...sigh.. 

    Steven Pryce

    How many more musical poems would we have had if he was still with us
