Shake the Moon Down

The prophets of the Western World are sleeping

But still I reach for heaven in my dreaming

I reconcile my longing to the sadness

Then I wake up to the wonder of a heart’s mysteries

Who is there on earth that’s gone before me?

I’m standing on my own and hoping slowly

You’ve taken all the promise I was holding

I’m waiting for the darkness to be broken

Shake the world down

Shake the moon down

Shake the stars from the sky til I’m dust

But Baby please – have you never been in love?

Baby please – have you never been in love?

The colours of the rainbow aren’t enough

To represent the meanings sent by love

So summon up the storm clouds now and tell me

Who is there on sky or sea to help me?

Shake the world down

Shake the moon down

Shake the stars from the sky til I’m dust

But Baby please – have you never been in love?

Baby please – have you never been in love?

The prophets of the Western World are sleeping

But still I seek the message in their dreaming

And even if my death should be my shelter

I leave this vision knowing I once held her

Shake the world down

Shake the moon down

Shake your fist in my face while I blush

But Baby please – have you never been in love?

Baby please – have you never been in love?
