She calls from Paris to see if I'm okay
I get post cards of monuments everywhere she stays
I'm breathing into everything
I'm following every moment in time
Hanging on the words like life line

I'm reaching out
to touch the night before it's gone
Before the sun begs for mercy
in the presence of the dawn
I'm trying out every corner of this room
and I was simply heavenly
She hung the moon
ooh, she hung the moon

Call me Orion, Jupiter, Gemini
On the wall we are orbiting like satellites
In the corner of my eye
Falling into atmosphere
Breathing in every moment in time
Burning in to stardust in our prime

I'm reaching out
to touch the night before it's gone
Before the sun begs for mercy
in the presence of the dawn
I'm trying out every corner of this room
and I was simply heavenly
She hung the moon
ooh, she hung the moon

And once again we've got a shot at another rendition
But in the end you're just assuming the same old position
The attraction's only gravity
pulling me into this
It's tugging at my certainty
And clenching my right fist
Seconds fade to light years in me
Taking in every moment in time
Counting constellations in my mind

I'm reaching out
o touch the night before it's gone
Before the sun begs for mercy
in the presence of the dawn
I'm trying now every corner of this room
and I was simply heavenly, but
She hung the moon
ooh, she hung the moon
she hung the moon
she hung the moon
nah nah nah nah
nah nah nah nah
nah
she hung the moon

    General CommentThis is one of the prettiest songs I know. The astronomy theme, the harmonies, countermelodies - it's just kind of perfect...
