"The Moon's A Harsh Mistress" as written by and Jimmy Webb....
see her how she flies
golden sails across the skies
close enough to touch
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 pines
and then the darkness fell
and the moon's a harsh mistress
it's so hard to love her well

i fell out of her eyes
i fell out of her heart
i fell down on my face
i tripped and missed my star
god i fell, and i fell alone
and the moon's a harsh mistress
and the sky is made of stone

the moon's a harsh mistress
yes she is
she's so hard to call your own
