Future Islands - Like The Moon Lyrics

She looks like the moon
She says “It’s your eyes”
She sees everything
She knows me too well

And she looks like the day
She says “It’s the light”
Something in the way, she says “goodbye”

And she looks like the moon
So close and yet, so far
She says everything
She knows me too well

And I can call you, “friend”
And I can be the world
Silent chatter held

I won’t be around

And I can be a friend
But I won’t be around
Silent chatter, bound
Just don’t push me out

She looks like the moon
She says “It’s your eyes”
She says everything
She knows me too well

And I can call you “friend”
But I won’t be around
Silent chatter, bound
Just don’t push me out

We don’t have to speak tonight
Just don’t say “goodbye”

Making a home in my body
Letting it grow in my body
Taking these chains from my body
Letting it go from my body
Letting it go from my body
Taking these chains from my body
It’s harder than you know

She looks like the moon
She says “It’s your eyes”
She says everything
She knows me too well

And she looks like the day
She says “It’s the light”
Something in the way, she says “goodbye”

Just don’t say goodbye
I can be the world, tonight…

  14. Евгений Ан

    Это вам не Марвел и не DC
    Эт глубокая философия советского кино
    Но создавший клип американец что то понял
    И вот он шедевр!!!

  15. Issa Beganović

    This is so Manchester, I shaved my head, got 20 piercings, and beat up a Liverpool supporter.

  21. Isabella fortunato

    This video introduced me to the band a couple of years ago and now I'm a huge fan, thanks to whoever made this, the movie scenes fit in so perfect with de song

  22. Lajos Winkler

    It's not "sci-fi". It's SF. "Sci-fi" is an American name for "cowboy space films". "Through the Thorns to the Stars" is an SF film, even thought it's not that good.

  23. Nathan Paul Prince

    it was in my mind, while i was typing, but gone

  24. Jason Da Silva

    Can't believe i'm soo late to the future islands party, saw there performance on Jools holland which I loved and then I came here and now I'm hooked on both songs, what's amazing I can let other songs play in the background but when these songs come on I have to watch the videos lol.

  25. Seagreentangerine

    Fabulous artistry, to put this beautiful film to the talent of Future Islands, it fits so perfectly.

  45. Sister Grimm

    She reminds me of UglyWorldWide on Instagram

  46. Spectrum Apple

    I heard this song for the first time about two years ago, I haven’t heard it in what seems like forever. I forgot the band’s name, the song and the lyrics.. I have been searching for it because I loved it so much and there was just something about it, but the only thing I could really remember was the female, how unique the guy’s voice is and something about a moon.. it’s 4am I’m trying to sleep but I really want to know this song and so I tried sing it in my head (to think of a beat or think of lyrics), what the song was called or the band’s name, I wanted something.. then I thought “what if I try she’s like the moon” that sounds about right... and I see it.. it’s her.. my heart stopped and I felt so happy and relieved.. I still love this song and I can’t believe I actually found it lol I thought I lost it forever, I’m glad I didn’t.

  47. Phil Uplin

    As a music producer and composer, I can say I appreciate this song.

    Is it possible to be in love with a song? I often wonder...

  48. Paulina Guerrero

    Anyone knows where can I find this movie?

  72. Welsh steveee boyo

    Massive massive video definitely Bowie influenced

  73. Gabriel Mangold

    Seems like you found a clever way to make a quick buck off other people's work. How much youtube $$ do you make with these formulaic vids bro?


    You should look into US copyright law, fair use, and licensing. There's a reason he isn't banned.

    Gabriel Mangold

    ​@Justin Sure. I'll look into it. Sorry if i'm wrong. Just assumed with these view counts/ads, the dude's making money literally just cutting together other people's work.

    Gabriel Mangold

    Is he making $ or not is the simple question

  74. kmayam

    Wonderful music video!👍
    I watched this sci-fi "Per Aspera Ad Astra"/ "Сквозь Тернии к Звездам" (1981) in my childhood and remember that I was completely mesmerized by these big beautiful intelligent eyes of Neeya (actress Elena Metelkina). They were like dark infinite space itself...
    There is something in the film, which makes it still magnetic and "immortal" to me even after 30 years. Highly recommended!

  75. TORB117

    " Через тернии к звёздам " 1980 год .
