Elton John - Shoot Down The Moon Lyrics




Oh no I don't want it
You can take it all
I'll put my money where my mouth is
Put your suitcase in the hall

Oh you robbed me blind
Of what little hope remained
You put a gun to my head
A bullet through my brain

You can't shoot down the moon
Some things never change
We can build a bridge between us
But the empty space remains

You can't shoot down the moon
Some things never change
We can build a bridge between us
But the empty space remains

Just as long as you're around
We live on borrowed time
I'll put my money where my mouth is
You're guilty at the scene of the crime

I never say more than I need
The mystery runs deep
The dangers buried below
The secrets that you keep

Elton John Shoot Down The Moon Comments
  1. Artem Shipov

    "We lived on borrowed time" means, that we wasted time living together? Or, we would break up, sooner or later?

    RonnieFriend

    more the latter

  2. mizofan

    a decent song from a weak album by Elton's great standards

    ClassicTVMan1981X

    Too bad it missed the cut as being the theme tune for A View to a Kill, in favor of Duran Duran's song of the same name.

  3. Paula Gould

    Your voice is phenomenal on this track Sir Elton😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘

  4. Mark J. Beukema

    I think this song would go as a companion piece to Legal Boys.

  5. Ralph Hargis

    such a beautiful song with heartfelt meaning.

    Artem Shipov

    Is it about betrayal?

    raffviola

    @Artem Shipov I always thought that too. Probably either about betrayal or in a way, a pretty bad heartbreak, you get that vibe from this song.

  6. AM music

    great song very underrated

  7. Nas Dean

    To sad...

  8. Astrid Helble

    most sad song ever heard

    raffviola

    I know I'm late, but "Sorry seems to be the hardest word" is pretty up there too...

  9. Светлана Якутина

    superrrrrrr

  10. CowbellProfessional

    Pino's fretless is sublime.

    CowbellProfessional .. my next door neighbor was with Pino when
    He recorded this part... was given a week to complete, walked into the studio and banged it out in a few takes!!
