"Gentle Moon" as written by and Mark Edward Kozelek....
Smile down on us sun, show your rays
When things come undone
All animals lead, us to light
When we can't see
Stars, saturn and moon, glow for those
Who cannot get through
Rain fall and voice sound for those of whom
Still are not found

Gentle moon, find them soon
Gentle moon, find them

Black sky and black sea, lighten up
When we can't breathe
All dreams escape fire, over worlds
Fly but won't tire
Slow down on us wind, hold us still
When everything spins
All secrets and lies, let them out

Dreams escape fire, they won't tire
Dreams escape fire, they won't tire

Gentle moon, find them soon
Gentle moon, find them soon

All calendars pass, days die off
And hope cannot last
But if love was like stone, then yours was mine
Through to my bones
But how can we give back to those
With whom we can't live
When will the flame break
And spare the good people it takes

Souls escape fire, they rise higher
Souls escape fire, they rise higher

Gentle moon, find us soon
Gentle moon, find us soon

    General Comment"stars, saturn and moon, glow for those
    who cannot get through"

    I think it's about looking at the natural world and finding beauty in it that can help us get through our hardest times. That time persists, good things happen, bad things happen, and the most we can do is hold hope that time and nature will be kind to us.

    General CommentI just saw Mark Kozelek at the MFA in Boston and he said this song was written after September 11th. He said everyone was writing songs after it happened, and he was to nervous to tell anyone until just recently.
