lyrics

August Moon

She swam like a mermaid through dark blue and green caves
Climbed up the rocks, curled her toes in the sand
’Til all was forgotten, the trials of a woman
And the things that had kept her feet tied to the land

He spoke like a man who had plenty of treasure
That he had to dig deep down to the bottom to find
But when he took the boat out, adrift on the water
It was her face kept on coming to mind

And the August moon said ‘you fell under my spell
Like the light on the waves fell in the beginning of time’
Oh the August moon on a hot summer evening
When I fell under your spell
Did you fall under mine?

After the sun set they were cooking by starlight
They were strumming guitars and oh laughing so hard
There was nothing between them but fire and moonlight
The truth in his eyes and a song in her heart

And the August moon said ‘you fell under my spell
Like the light on the waves fell in the beginning of time’
Oh the August moon on a hot summer evening
When I fell under your spell
Did you fall under mine?
When I fell under your spell
Did you fall under mine?

Deep in the night from an ocean of dreaming
We wake to the sound of the water and stone
The rocks had been falling, the tide ever turning
But love is the lighthouse that’s guiding us home

And the August moon said ‘you fell under my spell
Like the light on the waves fell in the beginning of time’
Oh the August moon on a hot summer evening
When I fell under your spell
Did you fall under mine?

Oh the August Moon…
