"Moonshine" as written by and Grant Nicholas....
Floating in the everglades
Faces lit in sun
A moon that lights a thousand ways across
Is company for one

Oh won't you come back to me
Oh won't you shine out for me

Falling down from grace
In houses made for one
Holding matches til they burn away
Ashes to the wind

Oh won't you come back to me
Oh won't you shine out for me

Only you, it's only for you
Always true
But time is passing by
Only you
Always you
But every time we cry
We wave the sun goodbye
Moonshine

Desolate the renegades
Poisoned tongues persuade
Take the hand that carried you above
Oceans to the grave

Oh won't you come back to me
Oh won't you shine out for me

Only you, it's only for you
Always true
But time is passing by
Only you
Always you
But every time we cry
We wave the sun goodbye
Moonshine

Tear yourself, you tear yourself...
Going over every minute every second in your mind
Turning over catching fragments of a life before you die
Going over every second, every minute left behind...

It's only for you
Always true
But time is passing by
Only you, always you
But every time we cry
We wave the sun goodbye
Moonshine

Only you, it's only for you
Always true
But time is passing by
Only you
Always you
But every time we cry
We wave the sun goodbye
Moonshine

    General CommentSimply beautiful. I like the way the song changes during the first minutes before it finally breaks out again.

    General CommentThis makes me really depressed... For me it makes me think about the person I love. And how much that person means to me. Which also makes me depressed... I am not an emotional person. Only a few songs make me go like this... And it's a good thing! I love this song despite the feelings it brings.

    General CommentGiven the situation of the band as this album was being recorded, this song never fails to make me ball my stupid eyes out.

    Almost inconsequentially, at this late date, I think the line is "matches as *we* burn away".

    It's so clearly -- and beautifully -- about the loss of a loved one, and the lessening importance of that loss as life, as it will, progresses -- I'm crying right now.

    I thought I was over this.

    Always true, but time, y'know? What can you do, but live and love? I wish I could be more eloquent, but I'm rocking out too much and crying too hard -- which is surely all the tribute needed.

    General CommentAmazing song, brilliant lyrics, brilliant music, and they support each other, well, brilliantly :)
    Love the way it progresses and the poetic honesty of the lyrics about proper themes rather than 'shawtie hit the flaw'.
    At about 5 minutes through when it cuts out I always think it's over and I'm genuinely sad because I want the song to keep going, and then it does and I love how that makes me feel, I think that also adds to the meaning.
    I'd never understood the bit from 'going over' to 'left behind' until I looked it up and realised that there is even more depth to the meaning adn poetry of this song, it's just brilliant.
