The Sound The Moon Makes

There is a sound the moon makes when it takes up a fool's eyes.
It is louder than a train wreck, yet quieter than a cry.

There is a sound the moon makes when it is in a child's view.
It is louder than a herd of elephants, yet smoother than a flute.

There is a sound the moon makes when it fills a lover's sky.
It is louder than Beethoven, yet softer than a sigh.

    And when the band you're in starts playing different tunes

    I'll meet you on the dark side of the moon
