"Next to the Moon" as written by and Ronald Belford Scott Angus Mckinnon Young....
Well I tied my baby to the railroad track
Cannonball down the line
Giving that woman just a one more chance
To give it to me one more time
Engineer wishing he was home in bed
Dreaming about Casey Jones
Wide-eyed woman lookin' a mile ahead
Thinking about broken bones

[Chorus]
It's her love that I want
It's her love that I need
It's her love got to have
It's her love

Heavenly body flying across the sky
Superman was out of town
Come on honey, gotta change your tune
Cause it's a long way down
Clark Kent looking for a free ride
Thinking about Lois Lane
It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a suicide
And that'd be a shame

[Chorus]

Long Arm looking for a fingerprint
Trying to find the mystery clue
Hitting me with the third degree
Working on a thumb screw
Alright, officer, I confess
Everything's coming back
I didn't mean to hurt that woman of mine
It was a heart attack

[Chorus]

What's next to the moon?

    My InterpretationI would have to guess from the whole thing. An obsession with a girl, and going to extensive lengths to either win her back or keep her, including a somewhat over the line plot, (crazy for her perhaps?). Then lines like "the long arm (law) looking for a finger print", etc. "It was a heart attack", or a 'broken heart".
