The girl who fell in love with the moon

the girl who fell in love with the moon
she just looked at the sky and she was gone

the girl who fell in love with the moon
she tried to say no but the pull was too strong

there was a time when her mood
used to change with the tide
{there was a time when her mood
used to change with the tide
}
now she’s adrift on a sea of tranquility
she doesn’t care and nobody asks why

the girl who fell in love with the moon
she was so lonely for so long

du-de-de-di-de-de-de-di-de-de-de, hi-ya
{du-de-de-di-de-de-de-di-de-de-de}
du-de-de-di-de-de-de-di-de-de-de, hi-ya
{du-de-de-di-de-de-de-di-de-de-de}

there was a time when her mood
used to change with the tide
{there was a time when her mood
used to change with the tide
}
now she’s adrift on a sea of tranquility
she doesn’t care and nobody asks why

the girl who fell in love with the moon
she just looked at the sky and she was gone
she was gone

du-de-de-di-de-de-de-di-de-de-de, hi-ya
{du-de-de-di-de-de-de-di-de-de-de}
du-de-de-di-de-de-de-di-de-de-de, hi-ya
{du-de-de-di-de-de-de-di-de-de-de}
