it's a long time to sit around, tired
maybe it's time for you to sleep
i've been waiting here for about three hours now
(i haven't heard a peep)

over the moon ago, over the moon ago
get away from it, get--get away from it
things to do, you know, things to do, you know
get away from it, get--get away!

in front of my eyes, i've smiled and i've cried
i've held back, and i've let some things slip
i don't know what kind of expectations you had
(they were unwarranted)

when i first met you, you were reading a book
full of poetry, and it seems to me it's been a long time now
you molded the words into some kind of philosophy
which i've never understood
it's a long time now
it's been a long time now, it's been a long time now

over the moon ago, over the moon ago
get away from it, get away from it
things to do, you know, things to do, you know
get away from it, get--get away!

it's a long time to sit in the moonlight
maybe it's time for you to sleep
if you've noticed that gleam in my eye--
it's a secret that i'm gonna keep.
