Lyrics

I know how the moon must feel
Looking down from the heavens
Smiling at the silly things
We put ourselves through
Missing magic each day
and not seeing the wonder
That's how the moon must feel
I know how the moon must feel
Starry eyed and contented
Everything is beautiful
as it all should be
Far away from it all
Never meaning to hurry
That's how the moon must feel
From up there our worries must seem very small
Maybe that is why he wears a smile
I'm sure he knows if there is more to life
I wish I could be him for a while
I know how the moon must feel
Looking down from the heavens
Smiling at the silly things
We put ourselves through
Missing magic each day
and not seeing the wonder
That's how the moon must feel
I'm sure he knows if there is more to life
I wish I could be him for a while
I know how the moon must feel
and I can't say I blame him
Smiling at the silly things
We put ourselves through
Never taking our time
Always running in circles
That's how the moon must feel

    When he makes someone happy.

    When you smile at me
    I'll be floating on air
    I'll be beaming with wonder
    That's how the moon must feel.
