You say you wanna see the moon
Outside of our living room
Over the Manhattan sky
Like we saw last night
You don't understand where she's gone
When the morning comes
And I promise you she'll be back tonight
We'll find her and we'll say goodnight
We'll say goodnight

So you look for her in the books we read
In the shadows curve you show her to me
When the sun goes down and she's there again
Brighter now, your brand new friend
And for me the skyline's changed
Same old buildings rearranged
The sky's a richer shade of blue
And the moon's my new friend too
My new friend too

I used to travel in a straight line
Now I'm walking on a road that winds
You take my hand and we take our time
Oh we take our time
We take our time

The moon shines on our half of the sky
And on the half that you left behind
When it's nighttime here, it's morning there
But the moon in the same everywhere
While I'm singing you a lullaby someone's waking up on the other side
The moon shining on her too
She'll see it and she'll think of you
She'll think of you

I used to travel in a straight line
Now I'm walking on a road that winds
You take my hand and we take our time
Oh we take our time
We take our time

You hear music in everything
The rain's a drum
The traffic sings
I listen too and I dance along
We keep on dancing when the music's gone
When the music's gone

I used to travel in a straight line
Now I'm walking on a road that winds
You take my hand and we take our time
Oh we take our time
We take our time
