MSK Moon 1

Another song of mine from the year 1988.  This was a time of emotion and passion. Learning and truly seeing things for the first time.  Life still ahead but so much of it spinning past me out of control.  In many ways the perspective is what makes our feelings push us the way they do.  The moon to some can be magical and inspiring – to others it can be bitter and unyielding.  Often the battles of the day do not end once the new morning arrives.  We often wake up to face the same struggles and disappointments that devoured the day before. Reflective, introspective, in many ways bewilderment and confusion, yet we still need to continue and choices must be made.  All too often the choices have already been made and we are forced to face the consequences; alone.


            That was pretty easy, 

            Rings of fire spinning ‘round. 

            What is it that you see, 

            Watching the candle burn down? 


            Never start to finish, 

            Rather try to succeed. 

            Don’t try to understand,  

            But consider what you need. 


            Smiling, empty faces, 

            A swelling darkness of fear. 

            What is it that you see 

            Trapped behind each falling tear? 


                        CHORUS:          Power, Passion,  

                                                    Colors in tune. 

                                                    Freezing, Bitter:  

                                                    Unchanging Moon. 


            Today’s the beginning 

            When morning takes to flight. 

            Tomorrow’s the ending, 

            Without rescue from the fight. 


                        CHORUS:        Power, Passion,  

                                                  Colors in tune. 

                                                  Freezing, Bitter:  

                                                  Unchanging Moon. 


                                                  Power, Passion,  

                                                  Colors in tune. 

                                                  Freezing, Bitter:  

                                                  Unchanging Moon.

        Music can trigger all kinds of emotions- it can be therapeutic, healing or simply help us to reminisce about good times. It’s the most precious thing in the world.

        I could not agree with you more. That is probably why I am still ‘relatively’ sane! I have been able to express emotions and thoughts through my music and songs over the years. It helps me keep focused on what is important in life and to communicate (to myself as much as others) which path in life to take as well as the consequences of paths I have chosen. It is the closest thing to the healing abilities of warm human touch!
        Thanks again, truly.

    Potent words. No argument. Things in doubt trouble us all. The moon is famous for one thing — it changes. Unchanging Moon is a fiction, a wish, something imagined. Unchanging Moon is your dream. A possibility?
