Blame It On The Moon


"Blame It On The Moon"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Without a word, I know what she means, she sends me signals like laser beams

With a twinkle in her eye and a smile that gleams, I know that tonight she’ll be in my dreams

I don’t know what’s gotten in to me, but I’ve got to see her soon

I must be the moon, I guess I’ll blame it on the moon

When I close my eyes, she’s the only thing in sight, when I open them up I’ve seen the light

I have visions of her dancing through the night, circling gracefully, so radiant and bright

To no avail I try to get in sync, but she moves to a different tune

It must be the moon, I guess I’ll blame it on the moon

Her cycle, once predictable, is in a neew phase, her energy is scattered, coming down in rays

An aura ring surrounds her, suspended in a haze, darkness protects her as I long for clearer days

She’s cold just like December, but I’m feelin’ like it’s June

It must be the moon, I guess I’ll blame it on the moon

Seems like loving her is only thing I know, when I think about her I feel a nice warm glow

I wanna move in fast, but I know I need to take it slow, my mood is anxious and to her I must go

In my world it’s always midnight, while in hers it’s forever noon

It must be the moon, I guess I’ll blame it on the moon

In a perfect world where the planets align, together again our true love would shine

But soon the sun will once again rise, the only thing coming between us is time

I’ll never give up goin through space to get to her, flyin’ just like a crazy old lune

It must be the moon, I guess I’ll blame it on the moon

Brief Description

I think I tried a key I hadn't before for this one - B or Bb maybe, which turned out to be arguably good for my voice.  The marimba is played by my lovely wife Lenore.  This is borderline jazzy-sounding.  The lyrics are more of an exercise in rhyming than deep and meaningful, and don't constitute a complete story or conversation.  Instead, it's more of an abstract, stream-of-consciousness song whose appeal is the overall mood or feeling.  Sometimes I find I enjoy songs by other artists where the music is pleasing to me, and I never really know what the song is about, nor do I pay much attention to the remembering the lyrics.  This might be one like that.
