No moon she said
Tonight it's just too dark
Is it hiding out
In someone else's heart

Then she found it parked between
The branches of a lemon tree
A quarter full
But sharp against the night

She was holding on
The wheel was lost
She'd found herself alone
To count the cost

But like that moon above she thought
A quarter of myself is not
Enough to justify
Me growing old

If I swing low
Darling we'll go slow
And fall on our feet
You and me

If I swing low
Darling we'll go slow
And fall on our feet
You and me

With flecks of dirt around my eye
I laid her down
Upon her side
And was hearing bells
and she was gone

If I swing low
Know that I'm going home
To fall on my feet
This world complete

If I swing low
Know that I'm going home
To fall on my feet
This world complete
