about

love and fate in a cold dark sky (cabaret-esque)

lyrics

____________________________________________

LUNA MARIE

With moons in her fingers and moons in her toes,
a faraway look in her starry eyes
Luna Marie was the belle of the ball
in a town with a lonesome past

Her nights were spent in the old dance hall
stepping to tunes from a bygone time
her heart was heavy yet it skipped a beat
when she saw the stranger came in

He'd been traveling through on his way to a war
when he lost his place in the scheme of things
so he followed the sounds of the honky-tonk band
playing la dee ah dee ay

He found her there in that dimly lit crowd
the light of his life with the dark brown hair
the two started dancing round the wornout floor
and the night soon passed away

Oh Luna, Luna
Luna, Luna
We're spinning around in a cold, dark sky
And loving makes that seem okay

They never looked back as they dipped and whirled
past the rundown memories and the faded looks
Between their cares and forgotten dreams
they kissed at every chance

Was it the turn of her ankle or a twist of his fate,
the love poem written on a used matchbook?
Whatever it was, it was what they had
and they never let it slip away

Oh Luna, Luna
Luna, Luna
We're spinning around in a cold, dark sky
And loving makes that seem okay
