Shooting The Moon

Album: The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009)
  • All of the astronauts
    Champagne in plastic cups
    Waiting for the big hero to show
    Outside the door he stands
    His head in his hands
    And his heart in his throat

    What can he tell them now
    Sorry I let you down
    Sorry it wasn't quite true
    But don't get hung up on it
    Just solider on with it
    And good luck with shooting the moon

    Shooting the moon
    Shooting the moon, the moon
    Shooting the moon

    All of the principals
    Generals, admirals
    And the podium lit with the spotlight
    The crowd buzzing quietly
    Waiting expectantly
    Like it's opening night

    What can he tell them now
    Sorry I let you down
    Sorry it wasn't quite true
    But don't get hung up on it
    Just solider on with it
    And good luck with shooting the moon

    Shooting the moon
    Shooting the moon, the moon
