Daniel Amos - Man In The Moon lyrics

I saw Mr. Moon last night
You know he's on the rise
There's something in his eyes I've never seen before
There's some kind of magic here
He's so full of surprises
He'll hypnotize like the lull of a lullaby

Carry me home in my dreams
Nothing's the way that it seems
Give up my world
Now it's all too absurd
What was happened to me?

Man in the moon
I was shooting for a star much higher
Man in the moon
There's no life nowhere near
I'm dying to get out of here
Lord, don't leave me high and dry
Let me fly

Oh, the moon is a yellow man
Eclipsed inside his cage
Concealed from public rage
Faith of our father
Well, I can't smile anymore
Oh, end this masquerade
Let the nightmare fade
Kill the gilded calf

I see someone in my dreams
Who was born to die and rise to redeem
So pay no attention to that man behind the curtain
Will this upstart ever stop?

I'm the man in the moon
Lord, don't leave me here
