Must Be The Moon

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Robert Hunter

I hear singing high and thin
like a woman in the wind
Wailing music with no tune
No one there - must be the moon

Fact of the matter
I never knew you
Only some picture
My fantasy drew
Portrait in yellow
Shadows in blue
Might have been sweet
Never was true - it never was true

If I could dream this dream anew
From the start to the end with you
Knowing what a dream can do
I believe we could make it through
Make it on through - make it on through

You came from Picasso's pink and blue days
A harlequin figure with American ways
Silent as bricks on a back-street wall
Deep in my heart I can hear you call

I hear singing high and thin
out my window in the street
Wailing music with no tune
No one there - must be the moon

Made up a love song
I sang it to you
It came from the heart
So it might have been true
Not that it mattered
you smiled through a tear
packed up your suitcase
and left me right here
Left me right here - left me right here

If I could dream this dream anew
From the start to the end with you
Knowing what a dream can do
I believe we could make it through
Make it on through
Make it on through

I hear singing high and thin
like a woman in the wind
Wailing music with no tune
No one there
Must be the moon

You were as good as
It takes to believe
You knew how to give
I just couldn't receive
I've kicked around now
Like some people must
to learn what to value
and finally to trust

If I could dream this dream anew
From the start to the end with you
Knowing what a dream can do
I believe we could make it through
Make it on through
Make it on through
