about

To the Moon (4:10) Guitar, Mandolin, Bass, Cello, Harmonies

A bitter-sweet reflection on the loneliness that sometimes accompanies pursuing one’s dream

lyrics

To the Moon

I saw all the dreams of lonely lovers hanging in the sky
I heard all their voices, all their colors just asking “why”?

I’m going to drive this ship to the moon
And I hope I get there

They say anything that you can say
Someone has probably said before
And anything that you can do
Someone has probably done it more

I’m going to drive this ship to the moon
And I hope I get there soon

Who knows all the reasons
For the stories that we tell ourselves?
Why keep a lonely secret of the heart
If it makes you unwell?

I’m going to drive this ship to the moon
And I hope I get there soon
You can meet me there
We will make our own air
We will make our own air
We will make our own air


Why tell yourself it will be hard
Why not tell yourself it will be easy?
