Moon at The Window Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

It takes cheerful resignation
Heart and humility
That's all it takes

Cheerful person told me
Nobody's harder on me than me
How could they be
And nobody's harder on you than you

Betsy's blue she says
Tell me something good
You know I'd help her out if I only could

Oh, but sometimes the light
Can be so hard to find
At least the moon at the window
The thieves left that behind

People don't know how to love
They taste it and toss it
Turn it off and on
Like a bathtub faucet

Oh sometimes the light
Can be so hard to find
At least the moon at the window
The thieves left that behind

I wish her heart
I know these battles
Deep in the dark
When the spooks of memories rattle

Ghosts of the future
Phantoms of the past
Rattle, rattle, rattle
In the spoon and the glass

Is it possible to learn
How to care and yet not care?
Since love has two faces
Hope and despair

Pleasure always turns to fear I find
At least the moon at the window
The thieves left that behind

Moon at the window
They left that behind
At least they left the moon
Behind the blind
Moon at the window
