"Full Moon" as written by Simon William Lord and Theo Keating....
When the full moon turns white that's when I'll come home
I am going out to see what I can sow
And I don't know where I'll go
And I don't know what I'll see
But I'll try not to bring it back home with me

Like the morning sun your eyes will follow me
As you watch me wander, curse the powers that be
Cause all I want is here and now but its already been and gone
Our intentions always last that bit too long

Far far away, no voices sounding, no one around me and
You're still there
Far far away, no choices passing, no time confounds me and you're still there

In the full moons light I listen to the stream
And in between the silence hear you calling me
But I don't know where I am and I don't trust who I've been
And If I come home how will I ever leave

    General CommentThe lyrics at the start are actually 'When the full moon turns white that's when I'll come home' not 'when the thorn bush turns white...'

    This song is not about Twilight. Sorry. It's about someone who has left their home and their loved ones to discover themselves.

    A long time passes between the first verse and the last verse. They've become detached from everything. They miss the people back home, and they're haunted by the fact that said people want them to return but they can't go home because they're just not the person they used to be. Everything has changed.

    General CommentI love the bass and the strings. My goodness, how does this song even exist? It's that good. And yeah, it went perfectly with Twilight. Same with the Muse song. I wish I could find the actual score written for Twilight though...

    My Opinionwhenever I hear this I think of this person I knew who died like..3 weeks ago and that's so creepy because I didn't look up the lyrics til today.


    the lyrics just fit how I feel about all of this so perfectly. especially

    "In the full moons light I listen to the stream
    And in between the silence hear you calling me"

    because one night when it was raining I swear I heard someone calling my name...but no one was there and it was so quiet

    General CommentIt reminds me of the part in Twilight when Bella is running from James..

    "And I don't know where I'll go
    And I don't know what I'll see
    But I'll try not to bring it back home with me"

    "It" being James.. So she can keep people safe.

    "Far far away, no voices sounding, no one around me and
    you're still there
    Far far away, no choices passing, no time confounds me and you're still there"

    Saying Edward will be far away, and safe, and Bella will be all alone. Which is more or less how she wants it so no one will get hurt. So self-sacrificing..
    I love this song. =] And Twilight was amazing.
