The Whole Of The Moon - The Waterboys

Si hem de buscar candidats per a la Millor Cançó De l’Historia de l’Univers, aquesta seria una. The Waterboys amb The Whole of The Moon (Scott) del LP This is the Sea, 1985.

If you ever need to make a short-list for Best Song Ever in the Whole Universe, don’t forget this one. The Whole of the Moon (Scott) from The Waterboys’ 1985 album This is the Sea.


I pictured a rainbow, you held it in your hands
I had flashes but you saw the plan
I wandered out in the world for years while you just stayed in your room
I saw the crescent, you saw the whole of the moon
The whole of the moon


You were there in the turnstiles with the wind at your heels
You stretched for the stars and you know how it feels
To reach too high, too far, too soon
You saw the whole of the moon

I was grounded while you filled the skies
I was dumbfounded by truth, you cut through lies
I saw the rain dirty valley, you saw Brigadoon
I saw the crescent, you saw the whole of the moon


I spoke about wings, you just flew
I wondered, I guessed and I tried, you just knew
I sighed, and you swooned
I saw the crescent, you saw the whole of the moon
The whole of the moon

With a torch in your pocket and the wind at your heels
You climbed on the ladder and you know how it feels
To get too high, too far, too soon
You saw the whole of the moon, the whole of the moon, hey yeah


Unicorns and cannonballs, palaces and piers
Trumpets, towers and tenements, wide oceans full of tears
Flags, rags, ferryboats, scimitars and scarves
Every precious dream and vision underneath the stars
Yes, you climbed on the ladder with the wind in your sails
You came like a comet, blazing your trail
Too high, too far, too soon
You saw the whole of the moon
