"Full Moon" as written by Simon William Lord and Theo Keating....
When the full moon turns white that's when I'll come home
I am going out to see what I can sow
And I don't know where I'll go
And I don't know what I'll see
But I'll try not to bring it back home with me

Like the morning sun your eyes will follow me
As you watch me wander, curse the powers that be
Cause all I want is here and now but its already been and gone
Our intentions always last that bit too long

Far far away, no voices sounding, no one around me and
You're still there
Far far away, no choices passing, no time confounds me and you're still there

In the full moons light I listen to the stream
And in between the silence hear you calling me
But I don't know where I am and I don't trust who I've been
And If I come home how will I ever leave

    General CommentThe lyrics at the start are actually 'When the full moon turns white that's when I'll come home' not 'when the thorn bush turns white...'

    This song is not about Twilight. Sorry. It's about someone who has left their home and their loved ones to discover themselves.

    A long time passes between the first verse and the last verse. They've become detached from everything. They miss the people back home, and they're haunted by the fact that said people want them to return but they can't go home because they're just not the person they used to be. Everything has changed.

    General CommentI love the bass and the strings. My goodness, how does this song even exist? It's that good. And yeah, it went perfectly with Twilight. Same with the Muse song. I wish I could find the actual score written for Twilight though...

    General Commenti really love this song. It was a great way to start out with the movie cause i agree randommusicgrl, it does go well with bella's entry into the vampire world or the world of mysteries and mythologic creatures and stuff. the perfect song to start out her journey into forks.

    General Commentwell this song the music part sounds great
    the lyrics are a little strange
    but the music is so catchy and cool
    and it sounds very vampire and creepy

    General Comment"When the thorn bush turns white that's when I'll come home
    I am going out to see what I can sow"

    -Exactly what it says — he’s going away from home to ‘see what he can sow.’ Eg,to see what he can make of himself. When the ‘thorn bush turns white’ means probably the changing of the seasons. He intends to return next season.

    "And I don't know where I'll go
    And I don't know what I'll see
    But I'll try not to bring it back home with me"

    -He doesn’t know what he’s setting out to do. He doesn’t know exactly what he’s looking for, but ‘I’ll try not to bring it back home with me’ means that he wants to totally separate himself from the journey. He likes who he is, he doesn’t want the journey to change him, he wants to return who he is.



    "Like the morning sun your eyes will follow me
    As you watch me wander, curse the powers that be
    Cause all I want is here and now but its already been and gone
    Our intentions always last that bit too long"

    -His loved ones, his mother, girlfriend etc will watch him like the sun. ‘Morning Sun following him’ means that they follow him constantly, they are inescapable. It’s not just talking about them watching him literally, also his thoughts about wanting him to come home. As they watch him, he ‘curses the powers that be,’ eg he is distressed that there is something unknown driving him, and preventing him from coming home. All he wants is ‘here and now’ eg, he just wants to experience life for the moment, but it seems to him that it keeps slipping away from him. I think ‘Our intentions always last that bit too long’ just means that things you do always take longer than you think.


    "Far far away, no voices sounding, no one around me and
    you're still there
    Far far away, no choices passing, no time confounds me and you're still there"

    He’s gone ‘far far away’ and, no one has been talking to him, surrounding him as they did previously, to distract him from his family. Here, he doesn’t have to make choices, he is no longer distracted by the passing of time, and he thinks about his loved ones finally. Presumably for the first time in a long time. Without all those things, there is nothing to distract himself and he can delude himself no longer, he has to think about his family. He’s found he can no longer ignore them as much he’s tried in the past because they wont go away, they are simply ‘still there.’



    "In the full moons light I listen to the stream
    And in between the silence hear you calling me"

    -The defining moment of his life — he’s standing by a stream in the full moon by a stream, and he’s overwhelmed with guilt about the knowledge of how much his family want him to come home. ‘In between the silence’ I think implies that it is silent but the voices are really overwhelming. He thinks about going home.

    "But I don't know where I am and I don't trust who I've been
    And If I come home how will I ever leave"

    -But he decides not to. He doesn’t know where he is in his life, not literally doesn’t know where he is. He doesn’t trust who he’s been — he done things he’s regretted. But I think the word ‘trust’ implies that he’s not sure- he doesn’t know whether or not he regrets it, because he’s changed so much.
    If he goes home, he’ll be stuck there like the rest of his family.

    General CommentIt reminds me of the part in Twilight when Bella is running from James..

    "And I don't know where I'll go
    And I don't know what I'll see
    But I'll try not to bring it back home with me"

    "It" being James.. So she can keep people safe.

    "Far far away, no voices sounding, no one around me and
    you're still there
    Far far away, no choices passing, no time confounds me and you're still there"

    Saying Edward will be far away, and safe, and Bella will be all alone. Which is more or less how she wants it so no one will get hurt. So self-sacrificing..
    I love this song. =] And Twilight was amazing.
