“Racing the Moon” Lyrics

Racing the moon
We had nothing but time
We were racing the moon
With our hearts on the line
Hearts on the line
Holdin’ our breath
Racing the moon
And scared to death

She was sixteen that summer night
We stole the keys, we took a ride
We were livin’ in her daddy’s car with the top down
The radio roarin’
Faster, she said, faster
And it was over too soon
Racing the moon
Racing the moon

Racing the moon
Racing the moon

These things I never understand
Inside a woman or a man
What we’re chasing when we run so hard with the top down
Radio roarin’
Faster, we go faster, faster
Still it’s over too soon
Racing the moon

All the way
All the way
Anyway we can
All the way
All the way
Anyway we can

And now it’s down to me and you
Is this what we are gonna do?
We’re cruisin’ in a stolen car with the top down
And the radio roarin’
Faster, do we go faster and faster?
Until it’s over too soon
Too soon
Racing the moon
Racing the moon
Racing the moon
Racing the moon

Racing the moon
We had nothing but time
We were racing the moon with our hearts on the line
Hearts on the line
Holding our breath
Racing the moon and scared to death

We were living in her daddy’s car with the top down
Radio roarin’
Faster, she said, faster
And it was over
It was over too soon

James: Thank you.
