The Whole Of The Moon Lyrics


I pictured a rainbow
You held it in your hands
I had flashes
But you saw the plan
I wandered out in the world for years
While you just stayed in your room
I saw the crescent
You saw The Whole Of The Moon
You were there in the turnstiles
With the wind at your heels
You stretched for the starts
And you know how it feels
To reach too high
Too far
Too soon
You saw the whole of the moon
I was grounded
While you filled the skies
I was dumbfounded by truth
You cut through lies
I saw the rain dirty valley
You saw Brigadoon
I saw the crescent
You saw the whole of the moon
I spoke about wings
You just flew
I wondered I guessed and I tried
You just knew
I sighed
...but you swooned!
I saw the crescent
You saw the whole of the moon
With a torch in your pocket
And the wind at your heels
You climbed on the ladder
And you know how it feels
To get too high
Too far too soon
You saw the whole of the moon
The whole of the moon!
Unicorns and cannonballs
Palaces and piers
Trumpets towers and tenements
Wide oceans full of tears
Flags rags ferryboats
Scimitars and scarves
Every precious dream and vision
Underneath the stars
You climbed on the ladder
With the wind in your sails
You came like comet
Blazing your trail
Too high too far too soon
You saw the whole of the moon

The Whole Of The Moon
  • Mike Scott sketched out the song in a New York hotel after his girlfriend asked him if it was hard to write a song. The result was a tribute to some artists he admired, including Prince and the writer C.S. Lewis.
  • The Waterboys were a British group formed in London in 1981 by Mike Scott (guitar/vocals) and Anthony Thistlewaite (multi-instrumentalist). They later added Karl Wallinger (guitar) Steve Wickham (fiddle) and Kevin Wilkinson (drums). This was their first UK Top 40 hit.
  • The year after this was released, Wallinger left the band to form World Party, who had a #27 US hit with "Ship Of Fools."
  • When this was re-issued in 1991 it went to #3 in the UK, becoming The Waterboys only British Top 20 hit.
