Song Description

The song begins with a strong feeling of loneliness. I have tried to express the sadness the singer feels in verse one leading onto the first chorus. He also feels disconnected with society as if he is watching life rather than being part of it. The ch

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this as a poem at about 3am one morning when I could not sleep. The poem translated easily into a song and I contacted Jason Brian Adams to write the music and record it for me. My mother was ill with cancer at the time, she died soon after I w


Verse 1

The larger the town, the lonelier the place.
Criss-crossing roads, match the lines on my face.
People move slowly, like tears down a cheek.
Searching in vain, for the love that they seek.
I was like them, I think you were too.
Under a sky coloured darkest blue.
Feeling so cold, as the night closes in.
Longing for warmth of a lover's skin.

Chorus 1

I look younger by moonlight than I do in the sun.
My face tells a story, how my life has run.
Emotions within me have faded to grey.
My heart feels a torment, that my smile betrays.

Verse 2

But just when I thought that my future had passed.
And all of my chances had burned down to ash.
The vision of you gently cradled my eyes.
You caused a fire in my soul to arise.
One night you looked lonely and I felt the same.
You gathered the courage to ask me my name.
We danced to the music of love in our heads.
A tide rose within me and that when I said.

Chorus 2

I look younger by moonlight than I do in the sun.
My face tells a story, how my life has run.
All of my life I've been waiting for you.
My heart feels the warmth of a love overdue.


A tree stands alone on a dark winter's night.
Listening for whispers of spring.

Chorus 3

We look younger by moonlight than we do in the sun.
Our faces age slowly, as the day is begun.
What lies in the future, my eyes can not see.
But the love that we hold, paints a new destiny.
