lyrics

MAN ON MY MOON
words and music by Britt K. Arnesen

You've known me, in all of your years I've been true
Held in orbit by a simple lovesick tune
I sing for you the first man on my moon
This song's for you the first man on my moon

To reach me through endless skies your song flew
Made a landing in a dream in my room
Your melody has made me a lonesome fool
Footprints stayed but the flag won't wave without you
I long for you the first man on my moon
This song's for you the first man on my moon

When you're weary I'll fill up your rocket with my fuel
Chart you a course back to my room
Renew you when you're feeling old and used
I'll shine on the light of my youth
Just for you the first man on my moon
Just for you the first man on my moon

You've known me, in all your years I've been true
Held in orbit by a simple lovesick tune
If I lost you I would paint all of my shadows in blue
Every valley, every crater, every dune
Just for you the first man on my moon
All for you the first man on my moon
All for for you the first man on my moon
