​Crescent Moon

This song is by Rheostatics and appears on the album Greatest Hits (1987).

Dave Bidini

Someday they'll lock the gate
And your crescent moon will fall.
Who will help you to your feet?
Who'll say "Don't give up" again?
They shot the streetlights out;
I wondered if you knew
That they had no choice that day--
Their hometown's burned away.

When I saw you at the bay
With your suitcase and your ring.
You found the boat was on the rocks.
Where's the warning sign?

The place where I found you
Was inside the doughnut shop.
Then you heard the whistle blow,
Much louder than my voice.
I heard some kids, they said:
"You can't be born again."
And they had no choice that day--
Their hometown's burned away.

If you never, ever, ever come back, come back to you...
Your crescent moon will fall, again.
