The Whole Of The Moon


 progression 1:
            D       C    G
I pictured a rainbow, you held it in your hands
  I had flashes, but you saw the plan
 I wandered out in the world for years, while you just stayed in your
 room / I saw the crescent,  you saw the whole of the moon
  The whole of the moon 
 progression 2:
You were there at the turnstiles with the wind at your heels
You stretched for the stars and you know how it feels
To reach too high, too far, too soon
 You saw the whole of the moon
 progression 1
I was grounded while you filled the skies
I was dumbfounded by truth, you cut through lies
I saw the rain-dirty valley, you saw Brigadoon
I saw the crescent, you saw the whole of the moon
 progression 1
I spoke about wings, you just flew
I wondered, I guessed and I tried--you just knew
I sighed...and you swooned
I saw the crescent, you saw the whole of the moon
The whole of the moon
 progression 2
The torch in your pocket and the wind at your heels
You climbed on the ladder and you know how it feels
To get too high, too far, too soon
You saw the whole of the moon
      Yeah yeah yeah
BRIDGE: Unicorns and cannonballs, palaces and piers
        Trumpets, towers and tenements, wide oceans full of tears
        Rags, rags, ferryboats, cylinders (?) and scarves
        Every precious dream and vision underneath the stars
 backing vocals sing "tbe torcb in your pocket" verse
 progression 2
Yes, you climbed on the ladder with the wind in your sails
You came like a comet blazing your trails
Too high, too far, too soon
You saw the whole of the moon
  The whole of the moon 
Repeat G C G D
 Oh, oh, oh, did you see the whole of the moon 
Repeat some more, end on G

C D Em G
