"Moonchild" as written by and Anthony/gonzalez Gonzalez....
They say I made the moon
Everything was in the dark
No memories at all
Just a tiny freezing wind in my back
As I was sitting there
Singing a song they had never heard before
Suddenly, a voice told me
"Keep on singing, little boy
And raise your arms in the big black sky
Raise your arms the highest you can
So the whole universe will glow"

My first vision was a bush growing down the river
And I couldn't stop crying
Something was missing
I realized I was in love with a voice
I called it, again, and again
But all I heard was the echo in the light

    General Commentthis song really helps me put things in a different light especially when I'm having a hard day. I remember the first time I listened to the song and I was having a bad day and I just wanted to run, but the song came on and i heard this voice of this scared child and the line "Keep on singing, little boy
    And raise your arms in the big black sky
    Raise your arms the highest you can
    So the whole universe will glow" just gave me a new breath of life that night. So the whole universe will glow... just that if you keep going you could change the universe inspires me to no end

    General CommentIsn't Moonchild the name of the princess in The Neverending Story? I think this is the M83 reinterpretation of that, someone must have just completed reading it.

    General Commentso beautiful, and so sad the lyrics

    "And I couldn't stop crying
    Something was missing
    I realized I was in love with the voice
    I called it, again, and again
    But all I heard was the echo in the light" just break my heart
