Man in the Moon

   

Man in the Moon - Christy Wessler & Scott Bennett

I wrote this song on a day that I felt whimsical. When Scott heard the song he decided to add the Man in the Moon's perspective. I loved it! ~ Christy

song lyrics

Man in the moon, you shine so little light on me
My heart is aching and so you see
I need some more light to fill my night.
You tell me wait for the sun
But I won’t see the sun ‘til break of day
It’s only ten o’clock, so what do you say
Spare me a beam.

Oh, don’t tell me how you’re sorry that you
Have to leave so soon,
Don’t turn your back on me, man in the moon.

Man in the moon, I saw your face the other night
While he was kissing me and holding me tight
You were shining so bright, smiling all night
You and I should be friends
Now that he is gone and I am blue,
Well, all I get is just a sliver of you
You’re glancing over your shoulder.

Oh, don’t tell me how you’re sorry that you
Have to leave so soon,
Don’t turn your back on me, man in the moon.

Oh the weatherman’s predicting rain
What if the clouds move in and stall again?
Why is life so filled with rain and sorrow
Now they tell me you’ll be gone tomorrow
Oh, don’t you turn your back on me!
Man in the moon.

Well that’s your story, but just to be fair
You sure know how to leave a guy in mid air
Why would you tell me that your love is just a
Phase I’m going through....you remember

You couldn’t wait to see me when I was new
But now you only see me once in a blue.
A shadow crosses my face each time you break a rendez-vous
I won’t shine my light, while you go out each night
Playing the engenue!
Count me out of your retinue, signed the Man in the Moon

Man in the Moon,
(Well that’s your story, but just to be fair)
Oh please don’t leave me here alone
(You sure know how to leave a guy in mid air)
Is there some way that I can reach you by phone if I should need you tomorrow,
(Why would you tell me that your love is just a phase I’m going through)
Oh, you tell me you’ll be round again, but little by little’s too long
(I won’t shine my light, while you go out each night playing the engenue!)
Oh please don’t you do me wrong, Man in the Moon.
(Count me out of your retinue, signed the Man in the Moon)

Don’t stay away too long, Man in the Moon!
