I turned away from the sun and I saw your shadow
Down the barrel of a gun when I wore your halo

I just want you to stay, I just want you to stay
I just want you to stay, stay with me tonight

There is no love like a man on the moon
I'll meet you there, bring an oxygen tank
So I won't be so blue
If I wished everything to be so true
I'd be the one who's dead in the pool
And I'd be so blue

As a tear falls from my eyes I realise there's no heaven
And if you leave me alone tonight I just might...

I just want you to stay, I just want you to stay
I just want you to stay, stay with me tonight

There is no love like a man on the moon
I'll meet you there, bring an oxygen tank
So I won't be so blue
If I wished everything to be so true
I'd be the one who's dead in the pool
And I'd be so blue

There is no heaven for me
You took my halo away
There is no heaven for me

There is no love like a man on the moon
I'll meet you there, bring an oxygen tank
So I won't be so blue
If I wished everything to be so true
I'd be the one who's dead in the pool
And I'd be so blue

There is no love like a man on the moon
I'll meet you there, bring an oxygen tank
So I won't be so blue
If I wished everything to be so true
I'd be the one who's dead in the pool
And I'd be so blue

    General CommentCan't believe this has no comments... It's such a fantastic, futuristic song. I've listened to it a million times over and I haven't gotten sick of it yet. Plus it's awesome live. Jeez, when they get unearthed they're going to be big.
