Blue Moon
by Beck

Album: Morning Phase (2014)
  • I'm so tired of being alone
    These penitent walls are all I've known
    Songbird calling across the water
    Inside my silent asylum

    Oh don't leave me on my own
    Left me standing all alone
    Cut me down to size so I can fit inside
    Lies that will divide us both in time

    See the turncoat on his knees
    A vagabond that no one sees
    When a moon is throwing shadows
    You can't save the ones you've caught in battle

    Oh don't leave me on my own
    Left me standing all alone
    Cut me down to size so I can fit inside
    Lies you try to hide behind your eyes

    Don't leave me on my own
    Don't leave me on my own
    So cut me down to size so I can fit inside
    Lies that will divide us both in time Writer/s: BECK HANSEN

  • Prashant Chauhan from IndiaThis is so heart touching. I love this.....i just can't help singing whenever I get to this track
  • Angela Midgley from Niskayuna, New YorkThis song so artfully sums up how I felt during my 2nd divorce. I was so tired of being alone while married, then I was also left standing alone with three kids. Alone when together and alone when separated seemed doubly painful to realize. I thought I had a partner, when really, I was always on my own. And now I have a snappy blue moon tattoo on my shoulder, so all is well. I'm grateful for the song.
  • Erica from Texarkana My favorite song from beck.
