"The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress" lyrics

The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress

See her as she flies
Golden sails across the sky
Close enough to touch
But careful if you try

Though she looks as warm as gold
The moon's a harsh mistress
The moon can be so cold

Once the sun did shine
And, Lord, it felt so fine
The moon a phantom rose
Through the mountains and the pine

And then the darkness fell
The moon's a harsh mistress
It's hard to love her well

I fell out of her eyes
I fell out of her heart
I fell down on my face
Yes I did
And I tripped and I missed my star

And I fell and fell alone
The moon's a harsh mistress
The sky is made of stone

The moon's a harsh mistress
She's hard to call your own
