BRING DOWN THE MOON

I'm walking in darkness
With no shadows
Tears fall in silence
With no sound
I've got to let
Of visions I've outgrown
Even I know
But it hurts
So let the rain come down

Bring down the moon
The mythic and mighty that fall when you lean
Bring down the moon
Building love
On thin air and dreams
Perfect love is a desperate creed
And one that we all try to believe
So bring down the moon

I'm finding some comfort
In closing the distance
Between my life
And my dreams
If love's not forever
I need to discover
The spirit of romance and magic
In living from day to day

Bring down the moon
The mythic and mighty that fall when you lean
Bring down the moon
Building love
On thin air and dreams
Perfect love is a desperate creed
Still we keep trying to believe
So bring down the moon

Well there's no guarantee
That there ever will be
Perfect love
So let the rain come down
I know that it hurts
Cause I used to believe
I know how it hurts

Bring down the moon
The mythic and mighty
That fall when you lean
Bring down the moon
Building love
On thin air and dreams
Perfect love
There's no guarantee
And still we believe
Perfect love
So bring down the moon
Bring down the moon
