“Silver Moon” Lyrics

Mike: Now we say goodbye with this song.

See the lazy windmill slowly turning
Cutting up the marble canyons of the sky
See the dust around my feet go churning
Moving with the wind down the highways of goodbye

I’m standing in the lonely light of the silver moon
Looking over maps of memories for the road
Standing in the lonely light of the silver moon
With the unexpected destination of my home

Half the thoughts that I’m thinking speak in sighs
As that same old wave of loneliness returns
I can see you when I close my eyes
Speaking very softly as you turn

I’m standing in the lonely light of the silver moon
Looking over maps of memories for the road
Standing in the lonely light of the silver moon
With the unexpected destination of my home

[break]

Now I must go
Go and let go

I’m standing in the lonely light of the silver moon
Looking over maps of memories for the road
Standing in the lonely light of the silver moon
With the unexpected destination of my home

[break]

Now I must go
Go and let go
Oh, oh

Standing in the lonely light of the silver moon
Well, looking over maps of memories for the road
Well, I’m standing in the lonely light of the silver moon
With the unexpected destination of my home
With the unexpected destination of my home
With the unexpected destination of my home
Of my home

Mike: Thank you very much. Good night. David MacKay on the bass. Al Perkins on guitar. James Trumbo on piano. Johnny Ware on drums. And my name is Burt Lancaster.
