Calling The Moon - by Dar Williams
« on: February 13, 2012, 06:02:38 AM »

This song never fails to bring tears to my eyes.

Video of one of the most wonderful singers I've ever listened to, Dar Williams:  http://youtu.be/ZiGJw-2WhfI

The moon wanted more of my night
I turned off the engine and headlights
The trees appeared as they'd never been gone
I promised the fields I'd return from now on

And the moon kept on rising
I had no more to say
I put my roadmaps away
And surrendered the day

And I know you'll be calling me soon
And if I don't answer I'm calling the moon

Calling the moon
I was calling Her then
I'm wondering will She take me again?
Oh, I'm calling the moon

When I called the moon back to me
I thought She wanted my beauty
I shone in the best that vanity buys
I covered the path where my life turned to lies

And the moon kept on rising
But I felt nothing at all
She comes when the empire falls
And shines on crumbling walls

Calling the moon
By the name that She chose
As Tennessee wandered in moth-eaten robes
Oh, I am calling the moon

Calling the moon
Oh, I'm calling the moon

Oh, make sense of me, night
I can see so much from this cold height
The moon said "Oh, darkness my work is done
I've poured this bottle of light from the sun."

But their anger keeps on rising
And they don't understand
I've shown them all that I can
That the world is at hand

And I know they'll be calling me soon
And if I don't answer I'm only the moon
I can see by Her light
This one's going out to the moon tonight
Oh, I'm calling the moon

Calling the moon
'Cause I know what it's worth
To tug at the seas and illumine the earth

Oh, I am calling the moon
Oh, I am calling the moon

Beautiful!  And it even has a reference to Tennessee.
