Looking For The Moon Lyrics

F Dm
1. My heart is in the mountains, while my body is on
this train,
G G7 C
my head is anywhere but in today.
C C7 F Dm
It’s cloudy in the city, and they say it looks like
rain,
G G7 C

got just one time long to hear the conductor say.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - F - G
Are you looking for the moon ?

Em - Am
Would you dance with her tonight ? F - G

Would you chase her cross the shadows,

C - C7

as she goes sifting out of sight ?

F - G

Leaving common sense behind you,

Em - Am

for a joy that ends so soon,

F G

rushing through the forest blind, never knowing what
you find,

C

looking for the moon.



+ Dm - G - C



C C7 F Dm

2. The train is filled with strangers and every stop
there’s more,

G G7 C

we’re racing towards the glass and granite walls.

C C7 F Dm

While I‘m dreaming of my river where the rushing rapids
grow,

G G7 C

and from somewhere deep inside my spirit calls.



+ CHORUS + CHORUS as instrumental











C C7 F Dm

3. We pull into the station and I join the taxi line,

G G7 C

it’s raining now like it means to rain all day.

C C7 F Dm

This city has ten million dreams, not one of them is
mine,

G G7 C

so I turn myself around and I walk away.



- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - F - G

And I’ll go looking for the moon,

Em - Am

and I’ll dance with her tonight ?

F - G

and I’ll chase her cross the shadows,

C - C7

as she goes slipping out of sight.

F - G

Leaving common sense behind me,

Em - Am

for a joy that ends so soon,

F G

rushing through the forest blind, never knowing what I
find,

C

looking for the moon.



F G

Rushing through the forest blind, never knowing what I
find,

C

looking for the moon.

Dm - G - C

Are you looking for the moo……..n ?
