lyrics

Last Man On The Moon
©2004 Henry Boy Jenkins

I met her in the summer rain
She asked if I could fly
I never asked her why, it just turned out that way

I didn’t catch her metaphor
It flew right overhead
She took my hand instead and showed me how to play

It’s a long way down and a long, long time ago...

The first time and the last always come as a surprise
Right before your eyes your world explodes
The last one is the very first to know

I held her through the winter snow
She read her zodiac
I never could look back into the future

I had to turn my collar up
Against a frozen sky
She told me not to cry but to forget her

It’s a long way down and a long, long time ago...

The first time and the last always come as a surprise
Right before your eyes your world explodes
The last one is the very first to know

Your cameo appearances are overdue
The valentines I knew were all belated
The chrysalis is decorating his cocoon
The "Last Man on the Moon" routine
Is over rated - so backdated, yeah

It’s a long way down and a long, long time ago...

The first time and the last always come as a surprise
Right before your eyes your world explodes

The first time and the last time
Like a mirror and a mask
You never have to ask because it shows
The last one is the very first to know
