Neil Jordan Moon Rocket Lyrics:
Where was I when the rockets came to life
And carried you away into the alligator sky
Even though, I’ll never know what’s up ahead
I’m never lettin’ go, I’m never lettin’ go
I can finally see that you’re right there beside me
I am not my own, for I have been made new
Please don’t let me go I desperately need You
You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep
Cause they’d fill the open air
And leave tear drops everywhere
you’d think me rude but I would just stand and
Stare
I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns, slowly
it’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep
Cause everything is never as it seems
Cause I’d get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance
A foxtrot above my head
A sock hop beneath my bed
The disco ball is just hanging by a thread
(Thread, thread…)
I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns, slowly
it’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep
Cause everything is never as it seems
(When I fall asleep)
Leave my door open just a crack
(Please take me away from here)
Cause I feel like such an insomniac
(Please take me away from here)
Why do I tire of counting sheep?
(Please take me away from here)
When I’m far too tired to fall asleep
(Ha-ha)
To ten million fireflies
I’m weird cause I hate goodbyes
I got misty eyes as they said farewell
(Said farewell)
But I’ll know where several are
If my dreams get real bizarre
Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar
(Jar, jar, jar…)
I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns, slowly
it’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep
Cause everything is never as it seems
(When I fall asleep)
[x2]
I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns, slowly
it’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams

Breathe and I’ll carry you away into the velvet sky
And we’ll stir the stars around
And watch them fall away into the Hudson Bay
And plummet out of sight and sound
The open summer breeze will sweep you through the hills
Where I live in the alpine heights
Below the Northern Lights, I spend my coldest nights
Alone, awake and thinking of…the weekend we were in love

Home among these mountain tops can be so awfully dull
A thousand miles from the tide
But photos on the walls of New York shopping malls
Distract me so I stay inside
I wish the rockets stayed over the promenade
Cuz I would make a hook and eye
And fish them from the sky, my darling, she and I
We’re hanging on so take us high
To sing the world goodbye…

I am floating away
Lost in a silent ballet
I’m dreaming you’re out in the blue and I am right beside you
Awake to take in the view
Late nights and early parades
Still photos and noisy arcades
My darling, we’re both on the wing, look down and keep on singing!

And we can go anywhere

Are you there?
Are you there, or are you just a decoy dream in my head?
Am I home or am I simply tumbling all alone?

I am floating away
Lost in a silent ballet
I’m dreaming you’re out in the blue and I am right beside you
Awake to take in the view
Late nights and early parades
Still photos and noisy arcades
My darling, we’re both on the wing, look down and keep on singing!
And we can go anywhere

Are you there?

Welcome back
Winter once again
And put on your warm fuzzy sweater
Cuz you’ll feel much better when

The snowflakes fall
Gently to the ground
The temperature drops
And your shivers freeze all the rivers around
But I keep you warm

If speed’s a pro
Inertia must be a con
Cuz the cold wind blows at precise rates
When I’ve got my ice skates on

If all the roads
Were paved with ice that wouldn’t thaw or crack
I could skate from Maine to Nebraska
Then on to Alaska and back
Cuz you keep me warm

Peer over the edge
Can you see me?
Rivulets flow from your eyes
Paint runs from your mouth
Like a waterfall
And your lungs crystalize

I’ll travel the sub-zero tundra
I’ll brave glaciers and frozen lakes
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg
I’ll do whatever it takes
To change

Farewell powdery paradise
We’d rather skate on the finished ice
Fingers failed us before they froze
Frostbite bit down on all our toes

Snow drifts build up and enfold us
As we wait out this winter storm
So we snuggle close in the darkness
And keep each other so warm

So there we were, back home from somewhere inside my head
Oh, bravely I fought off the monsters beneath her bed
Pillars of postwar books supported by frame of mind
While she memorized the pages that I tried to not hide behind
She took my hand in hers and whispered her love for me
The lantern died that night but we didn’t need to see
Implying that she’s the bee’s knees and I am the cat’s meow
it’s funny how she recalls what I can’t remember now

But when her smile came back and I didn’t feel half as horrible
She gave me a heart attack just because she looked so adorable
We both put our sunblock on, played on the beach and vowed that we’d live and we’d learn
Yeah, but she got a tan, and I got a sunburn
I got a sunburn

So there we were out there, unaware of where we’d been
We kicked off our flipflops and swung from the rooftops again
it’s awkward but I’ll confess she’s all I can think about
And it’s funny how I recall what she can’t remember now

But when her smile came back and I didn’t feel half as horrible
She gave me a heart attack just because she looked so adorable
We both put our sunblock on, played on the beach and vowed that we’d live and we’d learn
Yeah, but she got a tan, and I got a sunburn

Oh, afterglow, look out below
We left a trail of dust behind
As we parted ways, she held my gaze
And left an imprint on my mind
I tried not to cry as we said goodbye
And hung the clouds above my town
But I shed a tear when she disappeared
Cause now I’m a stranger on the ground

When her smile came back and I didn’t feel half as horrible
She gave me a heart attack
We both put our sunblock on, played on the beach and vowed that we’d live and we’d learn
But she got a tan, and I got a sunburn
She got a tan, and I got a sunburn
Yeah, but she got a tan, and I got a sunburn
