On This Side Of The Moon

Original and similar lyrics
Some folks looks through a telescope And dream of flying high above the stars They say it won't be long 'Til we can haul on a ship to Mars I'm just a simple man There's a lot that I don't know But as long as you're here with me I just assume stay home On this side of the moon Things are going my way Your love keeps shining through Even when it rains There's nowhere else I'd rather be I'm happy standing in these shoes With you here in my life The world is looking bright On this side of the moon Sometines on a clear night We pulled out a chair in the yard And I'm always amazed At the good lord can make so many stars But I know I'd feel out of place Longing through the milky ways All you expect a astronaut I'd think I'd rather stay On this side of the moon Things are going my way Your love keeps shining through Even when it rains There's nowhere else I'd rather be I'm happy standing in these shoes With you here in my life The world is looking bright On this side of the moon

Bad Side Of The Moon

ELTON JOHN "Elton John"
Music by Elton John Released as a UK B-side in March, 1970 It seems as though I've lived my life On the bad side of the moon To stir your dregs in sickness still Without the rustic spoon Common people live with me Where the light has never shone And the hermits flock like hummingbirds To speak in a foreign tongue I'm a light world away From the people who make me stay Sitting on the bad side of the moon There ain't no need for watchdogs here To justify our ways We live our life in manacles The main cause of our stay Exiled here from other worlds My sentence comes too soon Why should I be made to pay On the bad side of the moon

I PREFER THE MOONLIGHT

KENNY ROGERS
When tempting eyes across the road Said to me I'd love to be with you I'm not tempted for a moment I just think about my woman The baby calls me on the phone Telling me I need to hurrily home Well the hurrying is easy Because she's waiting up With all the love I need I prefer the moonlight The one right little lady by my side That's what I like I prefer a late drive down the turn park With the moonlight shining so brightly Got her by my side That's what I'd like I prefer the moonlight I prefer playing quiet song She's a mother love her daughter Moonlight dances on the water The moon is full and so am I I look at her and feel like I could cry But my tears contain no sorrow Because I know She'll wake up by my side tomorrow Morning, noon and night When the feeling comes so right Somewhere in some sky Where the moon is surely shining bright

Rise Above

QUARTERFLASH "Goodbye Uncle Buzz"
I sat on the edge of my grandmother's bed and I combed her hair, While the mother of Jesus looked on from a five-and-dime frame, The three of us waited, the light outside faded, the moon came up, While Grandmother dreamed up her wings to rise above. She said... Love isn't having the things that we want, It's wanting the things we have. Life is deciding whether we cry or laugh, Oh, remember you're part of the moon and the stars, A part of those you love, oh, hold on to these things, They're your wings to rise above. A doctor in Texas wakes up again scared and he don't know why, His life is a tangle of suture, money, and blood, He says, "I touch without feeling, I fix without healing, I do not cry, I can't find the will or the way to rise above. Love isn't having the things that we want, It's wanting the things we have. Life is deciding whether we cry or laugh, Oh, remember you're part of the moon and the stars, A part of those you love, oh, hold on to these things, They're your wings to rise above.

Love Or Money

JONI MITCHELL
The firmament of Tinsel Town Is strung with tungsten stars Lot's of forty watt successes He says where's my own shining hour He's the well kept secret of the underground He's in debt to the company store Because his only channelled aspiration Was getting back that girl he had before He's got stacks and stacks of words that rhyme Describing what it is to lose He's got some just for laughs He's got some for love That mainline to his blues Some to shed a little light on you and on me Some to shed a little light on the human story The wars of pride and property The rebel Irish and the promised land Jew Fighting behind his eyes and over seas Wounded in action and no ceasefire in view Brave reporters bring the battles home But tonight inside that box Just more bang bang ketchup color to him Just more Twentieth Century Fox All because that ghostly girl comes haunting Just out of reach-outside his bed And she kicks the covers off his sleep For the clumsy things he said She commands his head-She tries his sanity She demands his head-Tonight unknowingly Vaguely she floats and lacelike Blown in like a curtain on the night wind She's nebulous and naked He wonders where she's been He grabs at the air because there's nothing there Her evasiveness stings him With long legs-long lonely legs Bruised from banging into things One day he was standing just outside her door He was carrying an armload of bright balloons She just laughed She said she heard him knocking And she teased him for the moon Is one the moon, dear clown, Tied to a string for me? He tried but he could not get it down For truth or for mystery He tried but he could not get it down For love or money

Goodnight

CHRIS DE BURGH "Far Beyond These Castle Walls"
Well, it's after midnight and the stars are shining bright And a big fat moon is dancing on the sea, and I'm thinking, oh my... And that old man in the sky he's looking me right in the eye And he's wondering why, and he's saying Little singer, Why aren't you sleeping, why aren't you sleeping? Oh, the day is hanging heavy on my eyes, I guess the time Has come to say goodnight... And may your dreams take you travelling all night long, With an angel by your side when the wind blows strong Oh stay away from that city, that sad and lonely place, I will lead you to the river, here's the door, And the key is turning round Close the shutters, do not cry, there's a new moon in the sky; Oh hold on to your love, until your time has come to say... goodnight.
