lyrics

Old Moon Bay
(D. Danoff) Urbivor Records (ASCAP)

well i’m a ghost doing time
so I don’t sign on the dotted line
i don’t waste my time chasing papers and drinking wine

i hold on to the simple things, ‘cause I ain’t finished yet
and let go of all the lonely things that always make me forget

that you and me were meant to be like an island under the sun
and not the way we’re forced to pay for freedom with a gun

so look out everybody the funeral’s passing by
the saints who march in the afternoon will signal your last try

i wish we had another chance to pay the piper with romance
please send him my kind regards at the friday evening dance

don’t be afraid of the bed you made sleep now my precious child
i’ll walk you there in the midnight air and you won’t forget to smile

so take me out to the old moon bay and tell me every little thing about you
i’m not afraid to watch you fall
this old clown parade is just the magic in the moment when I hold you up into the light
so take me out and away

i’m a phoenix on the rise I don’t catch it on the first try
i don’t spend my time stitching suits and knotting ties
I hold on to the memories of all the people I’ve met
and let go of all the angry things that my eyes can’t forget

cause you and me were meant to be like the sun sets in the sky
and not the way we throw it all away by the end of our first try

so look out everybody the wind is howling loud
it’s burning in your eardrums and it’s story is not proud

so wipe your eyes and face the rain you’re a soldier in this war
you can hide for a little while but they’ll be rapping at your door

don’t be afraid of the bed you made sleep now my precious child
i’ll walk you there in the midnight air and you won’t forget to smile

so take me out to the old moon bay and tell me every little thing about you
i’m not afraid to watch you fall
this old clown parade is just the magic in the moment when I hold you up into the light
so take me out and away, away
