The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress

This song is by Jimmy Webb and appears on the album El Mirage (1977).

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 pine
And then the darkness fell
And the moon's a harsh mistress
It's 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 and I fell and I fell alone
I fell alone
And the moon's a harsh mistress
And the sky is made of stone
And the moon's a harsh mistress, yes she is
She's hard to call your own
