"Lost On The Moon" as written by and Duncan Sheik....
Here the world is desert gray
Never do I see the day
Here there is different light
There's only night, only night

Just a trace of gravity
Nothing to hold on to me
Sometimes there are passing ships
Away they slip, away they slip
If you hear me let me know
And away we go

I walk across the rocky ground
And hear the stars with timely sound
Here there is no atmosphere
You are not here, you are not here
Somewhere above, fears and heights, and satellites

Without you
I'm lost on the moon!
Without you
I'm lost on the moon!
Without you

How I dream of sweet return
To fall so fast and feel the burn
Confetti flies, the grass band plays, a small parade, a small parade

    General CommentI think the symbolism in this song is relatively straightforward. The protagonist is away from someone special; their absence leaves their world "desert gray" and he can "never see the day...there's only night." The line "to fall so fast and feel the burn" and his general croon throughout the chorus leads me to believe he's missing his lover.

    The melody is relatively simple, and the haunting strings really do well to reinforce the feeling of being lost on the moon (or at least in some barren scape, devoid of feeling). Another beautiful song from Sheik, even if it's not groundbreaking. His songs are well-crafted, and I love his lyrics. This one's especially important to me though. :)

    General CommentI forgot to mention a couple things about the lyrics 2 missing verses and one pet peeve:

    Before the first line listed here, "Here the world is desert gray," Sheik quietly speaks:
    "Without you, lost on the moon,
    Without you..."

    Then, after the "a small parade" verse, he again quietly speaks:
    "Will I ever be found?
    Will I ever be, homeward bound?"

    And in the chorus, the exclamation points could go. They look comical. :)
