The moon is down
All over town
The forecast is gray
Now that she's gone away

The stars in the skies
Fell out of her eyes
They shattered when they hit the ground
And now the moon is down

The sun will be fine
It'll still shine all the time
The sky will be blue
And do what it's supposed to do

You see gravity pulls
But it can't keep you around
It'll be one long day
And now the moon is down

The moon is down
All over town
The stars in the skies
Fell out of her eyes

The gravity pulls
But it can't hold you down
It'll be one long day
Now the moon is down

It'll be one long day
Now the moon is down
