The Moon & The Steeple - Lyrics

The moon is still up
And wind is bullying the trees again
Pulling and letting them go
It's been going on for hours
Ooo
Soon they'll be shaking off snow
And the barn doors will freeze again
I'm watching it all through the kitchen window
And the flowers

I'm the only one left in the house
But my school ain't far away
They usually spend every morning spying on people, ooh
Looking at friends as they're rolling their way on the stars today
The moon is still up but the sunlight will soon touch the steeple

(?) from the secret army
This coming out at night
The garden looks cold and
Abandoned by anything living
The barn is as old as a man
So dead in the morning light
Turns into something so warm and
Unclear in the evening

Livin' here all of my life
These views ain't new to me
I've never seen anything strange only rainbows and chickens, ooh
But I've seen everything change
Just to be like it used to be
Once I saw somebody slip and get up in a second

The memories are shrinking
Changing each day like a waterfall
The moon and the steeple are blurry
And for once I'm the tired eyes
Oo
I knew all the people
All the girls and the boys playing basketball
Did I know even back then that I lived in paradise?

? from the secret army
This coming out at night
The garden looks cold and
Abandoned by anything living
The barn is as old as a man
So dead in the morning light
Turns into something so warm and
Unclear in the evening

Ooo-oo-ooo
In the evening
Aoo-oo-oo-oo
In the evening
