Lyrics

Mr Moon

Written By: David Strahan

Mr Moon is singing you to sleep
ringing ‘round the stars tonight
Mr Moon said the time has come
rest your head - turn out the light

Little man, the day is winding down
and the moon is on the rise
Pretty soon you’ll be waking up to see
sun again in your eyes

and Mr Moon is singing you to sleep
ringing ‘round the stars tonight
Mr Moon said the time has come
rest your head - turn out the light

Everywhere critters go to sleep
tucked in at their mother’s side
I’m pretty sure they’re just like you and me
we’re all a part of life

and Mr Moon is singing you to sleep
ringing ‘round the stars tonight
Mr Moon said the time has come
rest your head - turn out the light

Banjo solo

and Mr Moon is singing you to sleep
ringing ‘round the stars tonight
Mr Moon said the time has come
rest your head - turn out the light

I hope you’ve had a lovely day
full of laughs and smiles
Tomorrow will be just the same way
In a little while

and Mr Moon is singing you to sleep
ringing ‘round the stars tonight
Mr Moon said the time has come
rest your head - turn out the lights
rest your head - turn out the lights
rest your head - turn out the lights

Beholden

Written By: David Strahan

There’s a lady I know
she’ll go the distance
for a heartbeat
or a promise
or a ghost
If she draws you near
you ought to listen
some people have more to say than most

Silence is golden was the watchword of the day
Might be beholden to the words you didn’t say

Stuck in my mind
you at the table
Bright and eager, once liquor’s lost its hold
You might rewind
if it were quicker
than the road you already know

Silence is golden was the watchword of the day
Might be beholden to the words you didn’t say

You blur the lines
and you blind the angles
when you say the mountain sky explodes
You might be fine with all the answers
but you spend too much time alone

Silence is golden was the watchword of the day
Might be beholden to the words you didn’t say

Silence is golden was the watchword of the day
Might be beholden to the words you didn’t say

Picture of Me

Written By: David Strahan

If I heard the sound I would still come around
with an angel I found in a dream
Do the years make it strange I admit there’s a change
you look the same to me

Baby, I know that you saved me
from things in my head like a picture of me I no longer need

There’s a shine in your eyes you can never disguise something everybody believes
Like a fear when it’s late or a pretty girl’s face
Or the stretch and the glow of the sea

Up with the sun I won’t tell anyone when the afternoon finds you asleep
Late for the show I’m not sure that you know
that things are as great as they seem

Baby, I know that you saved me
from things in my head like a picture of me I no longer need

Baby…
Baby…
