"The Moon" as written by Geoff Downes and John Timothy Payne....
The moon's worn thin
Succumbed to the pressure
Her silver dress
Hangs in the sky like a rag

Her coat her cloak
Her cover of darkness
It fails to hide
The tears that she's cried
Oh she cries

But she still shines
Though the night falls around her
And by her light
I find my way
When I fear the path laid before me
I look to the light of her face
And thank her for being so brave

The moon remains
In fullness or frailty
A faithful climb
And I stand amazed at the way

    General CommentI have always wondered if this song was a tribute to her mom. I don't know if I'm right, but it would fit perfectly. Maybe her mom had some really hard times in her life, but she stayed faithful to God through all the hard times. "She still shines, though the night falls around her. By her light, I find my way...I thank her for being so brave"
    Any other ideas?
