​The Man In The Moon

This song is by Adrian Belew and appears on the album Lone Rhino (1982) and on the album Coming Attractions (2000).

There I stood in the night
Out on the broken pier
Me with my feet in the sea
You with your face in the clouds,
The man in the moon
And as I heard your voice,
Felt your laugh
Flood across the broken pier
I wanted to die right then and there

You smiled down across the waves
As if to say to me
"Everything will be okay,
Be strong and true"
And I felt your eyes
Like the tide
Pulling me out into the air
For a moment in time
You held me there,
Father and son,
Home again'
