Hang the Moon lyrics

Hang the Moon

If our lives were a movie
I'd know what to do
I'd write every scene with my heart
An R.K.O. Picture that stars me and you
And this time I'd learn my part

I'd paint you some scenery
We'd sing, and we'd dance
From morning to late afternoon
And when that scene is done
Then I'd take down the sun
And for you darling, I'll hang the moon

We'd wake up to sunshine
Like lights on a set
You'd reach out and there'd be my hand
All day there'd be music, a perfect duet
That flows from the white baby grand

At night when you're frightened
I'll play you to sleep
That melody from Clair de Lune.
And to fill up the sky,
Past the clouds I would fly,
And for you darling, I'll hang the moon.

Hang the moon forever
So you'd never fear the darkness
The darkness I've known
Moon, protect Norma Jean
So that she'll never be alone
Never alone

If our lives were a movie
Then you'd be the star
'Cause now I know the role I should play
To applaud all you do
All the things that you are
And just be there on opening day

I know in the past
That the lines were all wrong
And the music was never in tune
But the wish that I make Is for just one more take
Because then darling I'll hang the moon

I'll hang the moon above you
So that you'll never fear the darkness
The darkness of night
Then you'll know I love you
Each time that you feel the light
Feel the light

If our lives were a movie
Then I'd cut away
All the moments when I wasn't there
The scenes that are happy
Are all that will stay
The rest will dissolve into air

As the final reel ends
We might both shed a tear
For the ending is coming up soon
But when the screen fades to black
We can smile and look back
And for you darling I'll hang the moon
