Song Description

Extremely romantic song, beautifuly sung. Reminiscent of Joni Mitchell.

Story Behind the Song

Inspired by two things. I wanted to capture with the lyric, those comic strip images in teen mags. i.e. Starstruck lovers walking under a huge moon in a safe, clean, beautiful, perfect world. Also - there is a scene in a Superman film (the first ?) w

Lyrics

THE MAN IN THE MOON

Did you see the look on his face last night,
The man in the moon.
Did you see.
Did you hear the stars play a tune,
When we kissed.
A midnight sonata,
For you and for me.

Did you feel the smile in your heart,
When I said,
This is love.
And the echo said yes this is love.
And the echo said yes this is love.
And the man in the moon saw it all last night.
Did you see the look on his face.

When we walked hand in hand for the first time last night.
Did you hear the breeze in the clouds.
Did you feel the sun on your face in the night,
When we touched like lovers.
Last night.
Did the man in the moon jump for joy and delight,
Or did my heart miss a beat in the night.

When I said you were mine,
Till the end of time,
Your face shone like gold in the night.

Did you see the man in the moon last night,
Where he?s been since time began.
He?s seen it all before last night.
But did you see the look on his face last night.
Did you see the smile on his face.
