Walking down this hill tonight
I had a thought all to myself
As I contemplated the moonlight

We've got it all, we've got it made
I don't know how I got here
But I'm holding on for the crash

Pull myself out of the moon
I know I'll never go there but
It's shining down from up on high
We got it made, we got it made
I don't know what we gotta make
Sooner or later we die

We're apart, go to pieces
While I go to sleep

Look into my heart, oh baby
Don't become a part of the past
You can be a part of the key

Don't turn away, don't run away
Don't leave me hanging by a thread
Shine a little love down on me

We're in love, make your peace
Wasting time is all you need

Walking down this hill tonight
I had a thought it was my own
Moon swept by the clouds and save the starlight
Or shall I be or shall I not be
I don't know I just don't
Feel like it tonight

    General CommentI feel this song is about a rocky relationship, like many of them are, and is describing the ups and downs encountered as one is in a loving relationship with another. "Or shall I be or shall I not be
    I don't know I just don't..." There are so many mixed feelings one goes through when thinking about the past and especially thinking about the future with their loved one, it's a very uncertain thing, god and is it scary.

    My OpinionI see this song as being about mortality. I wouldn't know, though.

    This song is not complete without "Some Sad Song" to top it off, for sure!
