"Lonely Moon" as written by and Henry James Angus....
Girl in the park one day
Killing all the bugs on the pavement
Seems like she got a nasty streak
But she does it in a beautiful way

Like a bullet from a gun
She sparks and then she runs
The only thing she's sure of
Is that no one really understands

Sometimes talking about things just seem so strange
Lie awake in the lonely night and things just seem so strange

Maybe it's all prearranged
Tears on an empty page
Look out the window see the full moon bloom and
This is what he says

Baby don't you worry
When you feel so lonely, ‘cause
Everyone's lonely
They're all crazy too
Like their mothers
Like their fathers
Everyone's crazy
Under a lonely moon

Sometimes she gets this way
About her when she sways
Slips into a liquid tune
And vanishes away
And it's only for herself
She can't bring anyone else
Everyone's got a special box
That they keep on a dusty shelf

Such a beautiful dangerous thing
Beautiful and strange
Making love to the night itself
Beautiful and strange

Maybe it's all prearranged
Tears on an empty page
Look out the window see the full moon bloom
This is what he says

Baby don't you worry
If people call you crazy ‘cause
Everyone's crazy
They're all lonely too
Like their mothers
Like their fathers
Everyone's crazy
Under a lonely moon

Don’t you worry
When you feel so lonely ‘cause
Everyone is lonely
They’re all crazy too
Like their mothers
Like their fathers
Everyone’s lonely
Under a lonely moon

Don’t you worry
If people call you crazy ‘cause
Everyone is crazy
They’re all lonely too
Like their mothers
Like their fathers
Everyone’s crazy
Under a lonely moon

    General CommentI love this song. The vocals are simply amazing. The bridge sounds kind of like that Pink Floyd song, Harry Angus has a startling range!

    Oh, and the words are good too :D

    General CommentI agree, one of my faves on the album, I love the way it keeps kicking along with real urgency, like there's no time to waste, and how it feels stripped to the bone, taut and purposeful.

    Some great lines like 'maybe it's all pre-arranged, tears on an empty page', which I guess is about destiny, but put very succinctly and beautifully.

    I also love the line, 'everyone's got a special box that they keep on a dusty shelf' - I don't like to think too much about what it means, but at the same time I know what it means, know what I mean? I love Harry's lyrics, and in this song he really captures the 'liquid tune' he sings about so descriptively, that this girl slips into.

    A very inspiring song that I like to put on when I'm feeling low. Well done Harry!

    General CommentThis one's relatively easy to decipher, to me. It's about how everyone feels alone, but in that everyone feels that way, no one's really alone.
