Song Description

Heartfelt expressions of an ever faithful heart, suspended in waiting, longing for her lover to return. Living in loneliness and reflection, gazing out into the deep black night, which is as endless and expansive as the ache in her heart, and holding to the moon with her gaze, just as she holds to the one she awaits with her thoughts...

Lyrics

Singing at the Moon

Up in Minnesota, in a county called Dakota, winds the four-lane 31
There's a history to this highway, a living landmark to the lies he told that cost the love they'd won
And within vision of this road she has chose to make her home
And she is watching from the window, she is watching all alone
She is waiting for the man who promised one day he'd return
And right the wronging

A fool to believe him, a fool who always will
She loved him when she met him, and God help the girl she loves him still
But there's too much heartache, and it's spilling over in her room
Cause she's waiting for you, she's singing at the moon

Back when she was little she could fit in the back window of her daddy's Bonneville
And as the moon shone on the highway, lighting up a concrete skyway, it silhouetted trees and hills
And with her fingers in both ears she would stare up at the stars
And she could hear her body humming with the motion of the car
And the rhythm of the road became the anthem of her heart
And all its longing

Love is a miracle, love is a lover's ruin
And you're pulled without resistance down that interstate of certain doom
But this love's forever, so it's not too late to get there soon
And she's waiting for you
She's singing at the moon

Can you hear her heart, calling?
A wish upon a star, falling?
When you look up in the dark
Does her light shine through?

Madison Wisconsin's having frequent calls of conscience on Grand Canyon Avenue
And between the Greyhound station and the car wash and temptation, are the places they once knew
And as he makes the daily drives in the business of his life
He is thinking of the girl he left beneath those northern lights
And if there were any way, he'd be heading out tonight
And her's by morning

A fool just to leave her there, a fool for standing still
He loved her when he met her, and God help the boy he loves her still
But there's too much at stake, and it's difficult to speak what's true
But she's waiting for you
She's waiting
She's waiting
Singing at the moon

Look up, look up, look up, she's singing at the moon
Look up, look up, look up, she's singing at the moon
