Silent as the Moon
          written 2006

"The Sun to me is dark/And silent as the Moon." 
                      -John Milton, "Samsom Agonistes" (lines 86-87)


CAPO II


INTRO: A  E  A

A                                    E
Nine a.m. on the dot, I fall from my bed
                                             A
With the echoes of a dream, floating thru my head
D                                       A
Another about you, the way you used to laugh
E                                  A
I hang my head, and let the moment pass


Memories bottled up and put to sea
Wave comes upon wave, brings 'em back to me
I'm on the shore staring out at what I can't find
Maybe I've lost your love, or maybe just my mind


CHORUS:
D                                       A
The sun today is dark and silent as the moon
E                                       A
Colder than my grave, and empty as this room
D                                             A
I've found somethin's missing somewhere in my soul
E                                              A
A part of me's escaped, but it has no place to go


BRIDGE:
G
I'm in a field, sun shinin' down
G
I open my eyes, but you're not around
             C                Cmaj7               G
And then the wind whispers to me, the sad silent truth
       D              E
It was you, oh it was you


A face behind glass, the reflection of the sun
Your eyes shining out welcome everyone
Your smile fills my eyes and haunts me like a song
Sweet melody in my ears, and I sing along 


CHORUS:
D                                        A
The sun today is dark, and silent as the moon
E                                     A
Colder than your grave, empty as this room
D                                                      A
There's something 'bout the sky, its endless depths of blue
E                                          A
I wonder if sometimes even God gets lonely too

D                                                          A
Oh there's something 'bout the sky, it's endless depths of blue
E                                              A
And I wonder if sometimes even God gets lonely too


A                                    E
Nine a.m. on the dot, I fall from my bed
                                            A
With the echoes of a dream floating thru my head
