Grapefruit moon, one star shining
Shining down on me
I heard that tune and now I'm pining
Honey, can't you see?

Every time I hear that melody
Something breaks inside
And the grapefruit moon, one star shining
Can't turn back the tide

Never had a destination
Could not get across
And you became my inspiration
Oh, but what a cost

Every time I hear that melody
Something breaks inside
And the grapefruit moon, one star shining
It's more than I can hide

Now I'm smoking
Cigarettes and strive for purity
And I'll slip
Just like the stars into obscurity

Every time I hear that melody
It puts me up a tree
And the grapefruit moon, one star shining
Is all that I can see

TOM WAITS
