The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

See her how she flies, golden sails across the sky
Close enough to touch, but careful if you try
Though she looks as warm as gold, the moon's a harsh mistress
The moon can be so cold

Once the sun did shine and Lord it felt so fine
The moon a phantom rose through the mountains and the pine
And then the darkness fell, the moon's a harsh mistress
It's hard to love her well

I fell out of her eyes, I fell out of her heart
I fell down on my face, yes I did and I tripped and I missed my star
And I fell and fell alone, the moon's a harsh mistress
The sky is made of stone
The moon's a harsh mistress, she's hard to call your own
