about

Another Jonathan Coulton cover.
(Hey, you make good music, people will cover it !)

Before some JoCo die-hards get to screaming, yes, I have altered the lyric slightly... Sorry, I do this to another of his songs... See if you can find out which one!
(And remember - I'm a die-hard too!)

ANYway...
This one, again, my vocal hung onto some amazing guitar work by Paul R. Potts. Go find him at thepottshouse.org

And, for those of you who may live under stones somewhere, the ubiquitous Jonathan Coulton resides here: www.jonathancoulton.com

Check out the crispy goodness and buy his stuff.
(Hell, buy mine too!)

lyrics

I'M YOUR MOON

They invented a reason
That’s why it stings
They think you don't matter
Because you don’t have pretty rings
I keep telling you I don’t care
I keep saying there’s one thing they can’t change

I’m your moon
You’re my moon
We go round and round
From out here,
it’s the rest of the world that looks so small
Promise me
You will always remember who you are

Let them shuffle the numbers
Watch them come and go
We’re the ones who are out here
Out past the edge of what they know
We can only be who we are
It doesn’t matter if they don’t understand

I’m your moon
You’re my moon
We go round and round
From out here,
it’s the rest of the world that looks so small
Promise me
You will always remember who you are
Who you were
Long before
They said you were
No more

Sad excuse for a sunrise
It’s so cold out here
Ice and silence and dark skies
As we go round another year
Let them think what they like, we’re fine
I will always be right here by your side

I’m your moon
You’re my moon
We go round and round
From out here,
it’s the rest of the world that looks so small
Promise me
You will always remember who you are
