Big moon above me, copper and gold
Apricot pie up in the sky
I can't get no sleep long as you roam
I guess I'll just follow you home

I saw the moon roll into the sky
Low above the ground
Big, full and mighty bright
Leaving happy fools all around

It seemed a sign of good things coming
Everyone agreed
We left the house and screen door, running
Fell out, right there into the street

She seemed to hang there against the law
Bigger than allowed
Every kid had brought a dog
And then they all began to howl
You should have seen us all there spinning
Silly as loons
Pretty soon the whole damn neighborhood
Grinning, out there under the moon

Big moon above me, copper and gold
Apricot pie up in the sky
I can't get no sleep long as you roam
I guess I'll just follow you home

Even jaded people stopped
Staring up in the sky
I saw a spell-bound traffic cop
Looking up and letting all lanes fly
And everywhere was indecision
Nowhere left to drive
Quit the car and cut that engine
People, we must get out alive

Tomorrow I know we are going to remember
How we felt so alive and we really surrendered to
The warm spring night and the full moon light
And the smell of life when you breathe it in again

Everybody's cell phone died
Too much mighty moon
All the TV screens went white
It was turning into one great night
Everyone met their neighbors
Some they never knew
I know it probably sounds like a fable
But honey, you've never seen such a moon

Big moon above me, copper and gold
Apricot pie up in the sky
I can't get no sleep long as you roam
I guess I'll just follow you home
Big Moon, we're going to follow you home
