Been To The Moon

Album: The Heart Speaks In Whispers (2016)
  • When we first collided
    The timing wasn't right
    I showed you the signs
    You disappeared into the shadows
    Now you're back again
    Telling me you do
    You do

    Don't you recognize a fellow astronaut?
    We've been here before
    Our movements are elliptical
    And when you move towards me
    You make me lose my cool
    It's cruel

    I've been to the moon, don't tempt me
    I've been where you are, God help me
    I've been to the moon and stars for you
    And now it's your turn to go for me too

    Your words are sparkling
    Like the galaxy
    It's not enough for me
    If you're really mad about me
    Show me something real
    Prove to me you're true, oh, do

    I've been to the moon don't tempt me
    I've been where you are, God help me
    I've been to the moon and stars for you
    And now it's your turn to go for me too

    So help me, what's the golden rule?
    Somebody better let me know
    What's a girl to do?
    Gone too far, can't hide my heart
    Why don't you just show me what to do?
    Oh, I love you, I want you
    It's such a long way up to the moon
    I've been to the moon and the stars for you
    Now it's your turn, prove it

    I've been to the moon don't tempt me
    I've been where you are, God help me
    I've been to the moon and stars for you
    And now it's your turn to go for me too

    I've been to the moon so gently
    I've been where you are, God help me
    I've been to the moon and stars for you
    When I was yours just to prove that you're true Writer/s: CORINNE BAILEY RAE, STEPHEN JAMES BROWN, AMBER STROTHER, PARIS STROTHER
