An eagles style song about the problems of lovers following thier dreams

Created: June 19,2021


We fell in love and said it be forever

We fell in love and said we'd never part

We married late in the summer of '77

And our love flowed like a fountain in park

But miles later and some worn out shoes Toughened our feet and hardened our Views

We wanted what wasn't in the other's Heart

They say that you should follow your dreams

But how can two lovers want differnt things?

You cant both have the east and west together

So I'm sleeping

Oooh

Underneath a lonley

moon

And I wish to the

Starry night

You might come here soon

And I pray Lord,

Keep me tight

As I cry alone

with all my might

As I sort what went

wrong or right

Baby

Dont let me swoon

It may be cold out here but all my

pursuits fill my room

Ooh

But I'm still sleeping

Oooh

Underneath a lonely Moon

Underneath a lonely Moon

Picked up the phone and I tried to call you friday

I thought there may be a chance we'd start again

A raspy waitress picked up and took my number

She said I just missed you and you were out with him.

I cross the days on my calander

And I watch the west setting sun

The only warmth Im getting here is from the heat off a fired gun.

They say that you should follow your dreams

But how can two lovers want differnt things?

You cant both have the east and west together

So I'm sleeping

Oooh

Underneath a lonley

moon

And I wish to the

Starry night

You might come here soon

And I pray Lord,

Keep me tight

As I cry alone

with all my might

As I sort what went

wrong or right

Baby

Dont let me swoon

It may be cold out here but all my

pursuits fill my room

But I'm still sleeping

Oooh

Underneath a lonely Moon

Underneath a lonely Moon

Very touching and quite sad. I really liked the line, "We wanted what wasn't in the other's heart."
Sadly this happens all too often.
Looking forward to hearing the song. Great poem.
