Matraca Berg  Lying to the Moon by Matraca Berg/Ronnie Samoset



    

Am Em  C   Am Em D


D           G         D

I watch the sun going down
         Em             G

While I stand on sacred ground.
      D        G           D

Where once the night found us.
       Em              C

In the twilight of our love.
Am             C        D

You said you'd meet me here.
    Em
But I'm all alone.
Am          C      D

You sounded so sincere.
              G

Well did you lead me on.
D          G             C        G

I told the starry sky to wait for you.
D          G            C

I told the wind to sigh like lovers do.
D      G                   C

I even told the night that you were true.
    Am        Bm      C

And you would be here soon.
            Am    D      G    G  D   Em  C

And now I'm lying to the moon.
C          G              D

And so the night takes me in.
       Em          G

Like a sympathetic friend.
    D     G         D

And sends away the trees.
       Em               C

And the willow weeps for me.
Am          C        D

The shadows fool my eyes.
      Em
And I think I see you.
Am        C        D

Then they start to cry.
          G

Don't you know that they believed you
D          G             C        G

I told the starry sky to wait for you.
D          G            C

I told the wind to sigh like lovers do.
D      G                   C

I even told the night that you were true.
    Am        Bm      C

And you would be here soon.
            Am    D      Am  Em  C  Am Em D  G

And now I'm lying to the moon.

(Matraca Berg/Ronnie Samoset)

I watch the sun going down
While I stand on sacred ground.
Where once the night found us.
In the twilight of our love.
You said you'd meet me here.
But I'm all alone.
You sounded so sincere.
Well did you lead me on.

I told the starry sky to wait for you.
I told the wind to sigh like lovers do.
I even told the night that you were true.
And you would be here soon.
And now I'm lying to the moon.

And so the night takes me in.
Like a sympathetic friend.
And sends away the trees.
And the willow weeps for me.
The shadows fool my eyes.
And I think I see you.
Then they start to cry.
Don't you know that they believed you

I told the starry sky to wait for you.
I told the wind to sigh like lovers do.
I even told the night that you were true.
And you would be here soon.
And now I'm lying to the moon.
