Joseph Arthur - Honey And The Moon Lyrics




Don't know why I'm still afraid
If you weren't real I would make you up now
I wish that I could follow through
I know that your love is true
And deep
As the sea
But right now
Everything you want is wrong,
And right now
All your dreams are waking up,
And right now
I wish I could follow you
To the shores
Of freedom,
Where no one lives.

Remember when we first met
And everything was still a bet
In love's game
You would call; I'd call you back
And then I'd leave
A message
On your answering machine

But right now
Everything is turning blue,
And right now
The sun is trying to kill the moon,
And right now
I wish I could follow you
To the shores
Of freedom,
Where no one lives

Freedom
Run away tonight
Freedom, freedom
Run away
Run away tonight

We're made out of blood and rust
Looking for someone to trust
Without
A fight
I think that you came too soon
You're the honey and the moon
That lights
Up my night

But right now
Everything you want is wrong,
And right now
All your dreams are waking up,
And right now
I wish that I could follow you
To the shores
Of freedom
Where no one lives

Freedom
Run away tonight
Freedom freedom
Run away
Run away tonight

We got too much time to kill
Like pigeons on my windowsill
We hang around

Ever since I've been with you
You hold me up
All the time I've falling down

But right now
Everything is turning blue,
And right now
The sun is trying to kill the moon,
And right now
I wish I could follow you
To the shores
Of freedom
Where no one lives

    Freedom freedom
    Run away
    Run away tonight

  5. Carolina Siqueira

    Im here because of lovely bloodflow

  6. louie farias

    This song lives in the same universe xstatic process by madonna does

  7. Kent Borges

    Joe KNOWS.

  8. priya seth

    I was preparing for medical school entrance exam and was stressed a lot back in 2011. I dint own a smart phone to play this song so in my everyday routine, after coming back from classes, playing this on louspeakers on PC was my stress buster. I joined, passed med school and still listen to this song everyday. I appreciate songs like these which become part of your memories in some or other way unlike anaconda, side to side, bad blood which are the ones popular now a days.

  9. Xianming Chen

    Can anyone tell me where the picture is taken from?

    chasingrivulets

    Xianming Chen I wish I knew the actual location as well, and more about the painting in general. It could be from the artist’s imagination, like you said.
    The closest comparison I can think of is Keyhole Rock in California (although I’m sure it’s not the place in this painting). Still cool to look at if you’re interested. :)

    Yma MuSic

    Durdle door in Dorset England

    Xianming Chen

    @Yma MuSic Thanks so much, I think truly it is! But how do you know? Just curios.

    Xianming Chen

    @chasingrivulets Thanks so much! Someone told me it is Durdle door in Dorset England, and I think yes it is!

    Yma MuSic

    Judging from the arch it’s identical to the limestone arch at durdle door. I’ve been there three times and find the scenery very similar to the painting.

  10. David G

  28. tenzin kashung

    Was listening in 2011

  29. Shawn Deshano

    OC didn’t bring me here, being a fan of Joseph Arthur since 2009 did

  30. Elimane Bachir Dieng

    Who listen 2018....?

  31. Alyssa

    I don't know what the original author of these lyrics was thinking, or what they were going through, but this song is so meaningful to me. When I listen to it, I think of it as being sung to me, by me. Like I am saying these words to myself. I feel that I am the one who everything is wrong, I feel like I am the one who needs to go to the shores of freedom where no one lives. This song has helped me with my own soul searching in ways I'm sure the author may have never even intended. Music is such a beautiful thing.

  32. Luis Barboza

    All my old memories still alive

  33. Moacir Mota

    The OC - Bateu saudades do meu 2003 viu! Alguém de 2018 aqui?

  34. Cynthia M.

    1st season of "The O.C." is the best. Why did they kill Marissa off? It was never the same. Sad.

    Alyssa

    apparently the actress (mischa barton) was having a lot of personal issues, like drug problems and legal problems and the like. but i agree, the show went to shit after that.

    Soundvibe Network

    everything can happen...they had never show us what happened after the car accident...of course if misha still nowdays rejects to return back in the cast...there is no reason to write a 5th season! anyway marissa could be died or not!

  35. Tecwyn Williams

    american pie the wedding

  36. Jayashree Sarella

    2018???

  37. Skywalker

    'all your dreams are waking up' ..this song is so soft and sad; a short-lived requited love.

  38. Husrav Homids

    I've been listening since 2011. Heard it on a guy's phone at work. It has relaxed, daydreaming summer vibes to me. Though back then I didn't even know a word in English. Also there's the "I Should Go" by Levi Kreis with the same style.

  39. George Simister

    All I see is OC but im here from American Pie, people!

  40. Shane Greenwood

    Was there from the beginning, and got to experience the best show and soundtrack ever. The O.C.ruled....thanks to my girlfriend at the time for turning me on to it!

  71. Lauren

    I honestly died inside when this song became popular. I knew Joseph before this bullshit "show" came opn

    6God

    TinTin I feel you. It's a different feeling, knowing an artist that others don't have any idea about.
    And sucks when they suddenly get famous and everyone is like "hey, you heard this guy, amazing"
    Stfu brooo

    Madelaine Raye

    I've known this for years, too. But let's just be happy for Joseph. I'm sure it's a wonderful feeling to have your art become more widespread. :)

  72. Fulluv Finesse

    "hits blunt"
    What if this is a song about two slaves trying to get away from the plantation but only one can leave while the other one covers for her. 🤔

    Lauren

    Not everything is about slaves, please find it in your beautiful heart to forgive

  73. Fulluv Finesse
