Kristiansen, Alice - The Moon's A Harsh Mistress Lyrics




See her how she flies
Golden sails across the sky
Close enough to touch
But careful if you try
Though she looks as warm as gold
The moon's a harsh mistress
The moon can be so cold

Once the sun did shine
And Lord, it felt so fine
The moon a phantom rose
Through the mountains and the pines
And then the darkness fell
And the moon's a harsh mistress
It's so hard to love her well
The moon's a harsh mistress
She's hard to call your own

    Alice you're my moon everynight

  84. P. S.

    See her as she flies
    Golden sails across the sky
    Close enough to touch
    But careful if you try
    Though she looks as warm as gold
    The moon's a harsh mistress
    The moon can be so cold

    Once the sun did shine
    Lord, it felt so fine
    The moon a phantom rose
    Through the mountains and the pines
    And then the darkness fell
    And the moon's a harsh mistress
    It's so hard to love her well

    I fell out of her eyes
    I fell out of her heart
    I fell down on my face
    Yes, I did, and I - I tripped and I missed my star
    God, I fell and I fell alone, I fell alone
    And the moon's a harsh mistress
    And the sky is made of stone

    The moon's a harsh mistress
    She's hard to call your own.
