Lyrics:Standing on the moon
I got no cobweb on my shoe
Standing on the moon
I'm feeling so
alone and blue
I see the Gulf of Mexico
As tiny as a tear
The coast of
California
Must be somewhere over here - over here

Standing on the moon
I see
the battle rage below
Standing on the moon
I see the soldiers come and go
There's a
metal flag beside me
Someone planted long ago
Old Glory standing stiffly
Crimson,
white and indigo - indigo

I see all of Southeast Asia
I can see El Salvador
I
hear the cries of children
And the other songs of war
It's like a mighty melody
That
rings down from the sky
Standing here upon the moon
I watch it all roll by - all roll
by

Standing on the moon
With nothing else to do
A lovely view of
heaven
But I'd rather be with you

Standing on the moon
I see a shadow on the
sun
Standing on the moon
The stars go fading one by one
I hear a cry of
victory
And another of defeat
a scrap of age-old lullaby
Down some forgotten
street

Standing on the moon
Where talk is cheap and vision true
Standing on the
moon
But I would rather be with you
Somewhere in San Francisco
On a back porch in
July
Just looking up to heaven
At this crescent in the sky

Standing on the
moon
With nothing left to do
A lovely view of heaven
But I'd rather be with you - be
with you
