lyrics

Truce With the Moon
Words and music by Steven Grossman

Truce with the moon
I’m calling a truce with the
(Calling a truce with the)
Truce with the moon
I’m calling a truce with the
(Calling a truce with the)

Maybe it was the Buena Vista fog
Or maybe it was the power of muscle-house steam
That prairied the hard and mysterious hills
we put between us and a loving dream
Or perhaps it was the glow of Mission Rock shine
that cataracted the vision when we fell out of time

Chorus:
I balance the hourglass
And I cradle this tune
My impossible lullaby
Calling a truce with the moon
I’m calling a truce with the moon

Doesn’t it feel like the first time again
this revving of such emotion under summer skin
Not a second to tarry in this moment of Bay
bridging the long expanse between these holidays
And I want you more than heaven and eternity
to see me as I see you, wanting you wanting me

Chorus

I’ll take the night and the clouds from your sky
and see your morning eyes
Take the promises and pins
and all the could-have-beens
the sorrowful days
and throw them all away

I say aren’t we what we remember and speak
an historical conversation of rise and defeats
A perpetual chatter, an original voice
enhancing or undermining each and every choice
And surrender is the tender I barter tonight
for passage to the moon, to remain in the light
Remain in the light, remain in the light

Chorus
