On This Side Of The Moon Lyrics

by Alabama

Some folks look through telescopes
And dream of flying high above the stars
And they say it won't be long
Till we can all hop on a ship to Mars

Well, I'm just a simple man
There's a lot that I don't know
But as long as you're here with me
Id just as soon stay home

On this side of the moon
Things are going my way
Your love keeps shining through
Even when it rains

Theres nowhere else Id rather be
Im happy standing in these shoes
With you here in my life, the world is looking bright
On this side of the moon

Well, sometimes on a clear night
We'd pull up a chair out in the yard
And Im always amazed that the good Lord
Can make so many stars

But I know Id feel out of place
Roaming through the Milky Way
All due respect to astronauts
I think Id rather stay

On this side of the moon
Things are going my way
Your love keeps shining through
Even when it rains

Theres nowhere else Id rather be
Im happy standing in these shoes
With you here in my life, the world keeps looking bright
On this side of the moon

With you here in my life, the world keeps looking bright
On this side of the moon
