MOON ontherun – Lyrics

  • Sun On My Horizon


    By MOON ontherun
    From the album Traces of Time

    Once again you’re the state I’m in
    but you don’t know what I’m facing 


    how to keep this storm within
    if not the one you’ve been chasing? 


    All the time the rains have fallen upon a world
    that feels forsaken
    so dance with me, reminded of all you can be
    the sun on my horizon 


    Time is long where a love should be
    a love I’ve always been saving 


    how to give this truth that i keep
    without some honesty fading? 


    All the time the rains have fallen upon a world
    that feels forsaken
    So dance with me, reminded of all you can be
    the sun on my horizon 


    Lonely heart glow in the dark of our eyes
    Don’t turn away another day to be mine 


    All the time the rains have fallen upon a world that feels forsaken
    so dance with me, reminded of all you can be
    the sun on my horizon 

    For all the times it rained come dancing and be
    the sun on my horizon 


    Lyrics: Shaun Bartlet

  • All Is Now

    By MOON ontherun
    From the album Traces of Time

    To be
    To be of circles and lines
    around a fire to be discovered 

    Or lost
    so lost and far out at sea
    to lose the fire
    to start another 

    Lifelines
    sunshine
    finding a way
    into the next
    days will collide
    and all is now 

    To climb
    to climb a castle of sand
    to fall down
    without the riches 

    To see
    beyond the circles and lines
    to tear the wall
    to fill the ditches

    Lifelines
    sunshine
    finding a way
    into the next
    days will collide
    and all is now 

    Futures
    past times
    all in one day
    nothing to stop
    us from colliding
    soon somehow 

    Lyrics: Shaun Bartlett

  • Want to tell you

    By MOON ontherun
    From the album Traces of Time

    Want to tell you how I feel
    That I’m sorry for the way I let you go
    Saw you with a crowd today
    Now I’m a stranger and you looked the other way
    My sense of self has gone astray 


    Now I can’t be near you
    Hold you like I wanted to do
    And I, I cannot tell you
    The way I was planning to do 


    There was so much hope in me
    Many questions that I did not dare to ask
    Then I dream it all away
    And now I cannot get the answers anyway
    My sense of self has gone astray 


    Now I can’t be near you 
    Hold you like I wanted to do
    And I, I cannot tell you
    The way I was planning to do
    Always with you
    You 


    Time has come between us
    and the hours go to rest
    but I hold on to the memories of you
     

    Now I can’t be near you
    Hold you like I wanted to do
    And I, I cannot tell you
    The way I was planning to do 


    Always with you,
    You
    You


    Lyrics: Melissa Osland Hermansen and Janne-Camilla Lyster

  • Mixed Up

    By MOON ontherun
    From the album Traces of Time

    Once upon a moment you saw me
    And hopelessly confessed that you love me
    So go on then, convince me,
    To fall in love with you

    Far away a figure is moving
    It’s waving, running, kneeling before me
    So go on then, convince me,
    To fall in love with you

    So, could we be Ginger/Astaire?
    Tuned to the beat of my heart
    Is this a dance we can share in starlight

    So, are you the pro to my con?
    Testing the weight of our thoughts
    Together unAl they are one, in balance

    Late one night you seUle beside me
    And I decline the drink that you offer
    But don’t give up, persuade me,
    To spend the night with you

    You turn away to talk to another
    I’m playing hard to get you to chase me
    But don’t give up, persuade me,
    To spend the night with you

    So, could we be Ginger/Astaire?
    Tuned to the beat of my heart
    Is this a dance we can share in starlight

    So, are you the pro to my con?
    TestingAng the weight of our thoughts
    Together until they are one, in balance

    If you don’t want me, you’re going to suffer
    You better not turn me down,
    Turn me down, turn me down, turn me down, turn me down

    Fantasies of us float softly by
    Precious Ames alone
    There is no one who can take you away from me
    Truth has long since flown

    Once upon a moment you saw me
    And hopelessly confessed that you love me
    So go on then, convince me

    Well, could we be tonic with gin?
    Fizzing all over the world
    Making our minds whirl and spin, for always

    Well, am I the Yin to your Yang?
    Merging our darkness and light
    Sparking another big bang, in theory

    If you don’t want me, you’re going to suffer
    You better not turn me down, turn me down
    If you don’t want me, you’re going to suffer
    You better not turn me down,
    Turn me down, turn me down, turn me down, turn me down!

  • Lisa

    By MOON ontherun
    From the album Traces of Time

    You couldn’t feel…
    You couldn’t feel…

    You couldn’t feel
    My presence
    Physically
    In-existent

    Virtual love
    Over glaciers
    Oceans of space
    between us

    You couldn’t see
    The sunrise
    Morning and night
    Inversing

    Dawning of day
    On my horizon
    Moonlight
    through your window

    Coming from the dark kicking into the sun
    Not belonging, not belonging to you
    Coming from the dark kicking in to the sun
    Not belonging, not belonging to you

    You couldn’t feel
    My heart beat
    Electrical pulse
    So silent

    Luminous touch
    In my memory
    Lingering scent
    forever

    You couldn’t see
    me falling
    Diamonds through
    your fingers

    Carved over Ame
    Like pebbles
    Forming my fall
    So lonely

    Coming from the dark kicking in to the sun
    Not belonging, not belonging to you
    Coming from the dark kicking in to the sun
    Not belonging, not belonging to you

    Holding you alone in a withering dream
    I was longing for the sound of your breath
    Holding you alone in a withering dream
    I was longing for the sound of your breath

    Shaking of the pain through the fading of night
    I am leaving you like nobody’s fool
    Looking to the past understanding it now
    I was running from the power of time

    Holding you alone in a withering dream
    I was longing for the sound of your breath
    Shaking of the pain through the fading of night
    I am leaving you like nobody’s fool

    Coming from the dark kicking into the sun…

    You couldn’t feel
    My presence
    Physically
    In-existent

    An image of you
    Nearly fading
    Never to be
    Our story

    You couldn’t feel…
    You couldn’t feel…
    You couldn’t feel…
    You couldn’t feel…

    Coming from the dark kicking in to the sun
    Not belonging, not belonging to you
    Coming from the dark kicking in to the sun
    Not belonging, not belonging to you

    Holding you alone in a withering dream
    I was longing for the sound of your breath
    Holding you alone in a withering dream
    I was longing for the sound of your breath

    Shaking of the pain through the fading of night
    I am leaving you like nobody’s fool
    Looking to the past understanding it now
    I was running from the power of time

    Holding you alone in a withering dream
    I was longing for the sound of your breath
    Shaking of the pain through the fading of night
    I am leaving you like nobody’s fool

    Coming from the dark kicking into the sun…

  • What I Came Here For

    By MOON ontherun
    From the album Traces of Time

    Time stands sAll when I see you in the distance
    a rainy fog choked day in spring
    You brighten up the air around like you used to
    Face to face I’m lost for words

    We share our numbers and you talk of the old days
    I’m sure it’s wriUen in the stars
    that we should meet again today aYer so long
    and you have things you need to say

    I hope that this is what you’re here for
    to start our Ame once more again
    But this is just what I am here for
    to see my yearning com to an end

    Searched all over to trying to find what I was missing
    Who says that Ame can heal all wounds?
    You were the only place I knew I could be me
    You made me smile when I felt blue

    I thought that this is what you came for?
    To start our Ame once more again
    But this is just what I came here for
    to see my yearning come to an end
    But that is not what you came here for
    You never thought we’d start again

    There were Ames I smeared your name just to shame you
    and made out my life was fine
    I put down the thing that I couldn’t deal with
    that the blame was all on me

    I hope that this is what you came for
    You think our Ame has come again
    Cause this is just what we are here for
    Our yearning must come to an end
    That was the only thing I came here for;
    to see my yearning come to an end

    Lyrics: Suzie Davies and Roger T. Matte

  • Rainbow Sky

    By MOON ontherun
    From the album Traces of Time

    How can I
    describe the beauty of my dreams to you,
    when you don’t know the words to make the dreams come true?

    How can I
    describe the colors of the sky to you,
    when you don’t know about the fiYy shades of blue?

    The colors are sparkling inside of me
    I’m looking into your eyes
    The colors are sparkling inside of me
    I’m looking into your eyes

    How can I
    tell you that my heart is lit by flames,
    when you cannot see the arch of sunlight through the rain?

    How can I
    explain the aura of my vivid soul,
    when you never take the Ame to look into my eyes?
    Into my eyes

    The colors are sparkling inside of me
    I’m looking into your eyes
    The sky is a rainbow, but you don’t see
    The colors are sparkling inside

    Your eyes sAll keep focused on the segng sun
    While I am facing the rain

    The colors are sparkling inside of me
    I’m looking into your eyes

    Lyrics: Suzie Davies and Ingeborg Riis

  • Traces Of Time

    By MOON ontherun
    From the album Traces of Time

    It’s snowing and it’s cold outside
    The sun has gone so far away
    Summer’s playing inside my head
    Worn out shoes in the shed
    Time is softly whispered away
    Traces of time
    Traces of time

    I see you as you’re crossing the field
    Turning slowly with a smile
    hoping that you will come back soon
    Traces of time
    Traces of time

    Strangely and true
    Shattering clouds of ease
    Like the laughter
    Mellow and free
    White nights appear
    So slowly
    In this winter

    It’s snowing and it’s cold outside
    The sun has gone so far away
    Winter’s singing a silvery song
    Traces of time
    Traces of time

    Strangely and true
    Shattering clouds of ease
    Like the laughter
    Mellow and free
    White nights appear
    So slowly
    In this winter

    In this winter
    Strangely and true
    Shattering clouds of ease
    Like the laughter

    Lyrics: Janne-Camilla Lyster

  • Dreams I’ve had

    By MOON ontherun
    From the album Traces of Time

    Weightless
    A feeling I have felt less
    Leave me hanging
    Whenever unnoticed


    Save me
    Enough to forsake me
    And do it all over
    Until it’s my safety


    Dreams I’ve had
    Where you blink a moment with my eyes
    And feel the love I’ve found


    Dreams I’ve had
    Where you see me through a moonless haze 
    In darkness love surrounds

    Patience
    Until the day it makes sense
    Leave me nowhere
    Whenever in silence


    Sometimes 
    You show me the daylight
    So many times stolen
    It’s starting to feel right 
    It’s starting to feel right 

    Dreams I’ve had
    Where you blink a moment with my eyes
    And feel the love I’ve found


    Dreams I’ve had
    Where you see me through a moonless haze 
    In darkness love surrounds


    When all that I imagined
    All at once
    All around
    Wide awake
    Is ok

    I’ll be all I can be

    When all that I imagined
    All at once
    All around
    Wide awake
    Is ok
    we’ll be all I believed


    Dreams I’ve had
    Where you blink a moment with my eyes
    And feel the love I’ve found


    Dreams I’ve had
    Where you see me through a moonless haze 
    In darkness love surrounds


    Dreams I’ve had
    Where you listen to the silence
    And hear how love can sound


    Dreams I’ve had
    Where you catch a glimpse of the one I am
    And hear how love can sound


    Lyrics: Shaun Bartlett and Suzie Davies

  • Marrow

    By MOON ontherun
    From the album Traces of Time

    It’s the Ame of year
    when everything is blooming
    Blackbirds singing,
    promising better days

    The glow on the street
    fractures winter’s shadows
    A sparkling city
    reflecting hopeful light

    But still
    nothing of this seems to lighten my mind
    Still holding on
    to darker sounds of winter

    My soul
    unable to curve up towards the sun
    A twisted frame
    and I don’t know how to fix me

    I caught sight of you
    quietly standing smoking,
    looking to me
    as though you hadn’t slept a while

    You read my mind
    and see the same old story
    “You’re too lost in thought “
    leaving life behind”

    But still
    Nothing of this seems to lighten my mind
    Still holding on
    To frozen thoughts of winter

    My soul
    Unable to curve up towards the sun
    A twisted self
    And I don’t know how to fix me

    But still
    Nothing of this seems to brighten my mind
    A broken stem
    But you can always fix me
    A broken stem
    But you can always fix me

    Lyrics: Suzie Davies

  • In The Heart

    By MOON ontherun
    From the album “Traces of Time”

    I must be high
    Roaming the shore with the wind in my sails
    Struck by luck, I don’t know
    All I can hear is the song of the sun

    The Russian blue
    Suddenly hit by the moon on the run
    I beg myself, don’t give up
    All I can see is the veil of the dark

    Shaken up
    thrown into
    Olden skies
    Like a leaf

    Lighten up
    Slide into
    Moony nights
    Like a stone

    Sleeping Aght
    All I can dream is the colour of sand
    In a misty cropland
    Sailing away on the breath of the rye

    The Martian red
    Dressing the house in a curtain of flames
    And my hands are burning
    All I can hear is the sound clock

    Shaken up
    thrown into
    Olden skies
    Like a leaf

    Lighten up
    Slide into
    Moony nights
    Like a stone

    Marble minds
    Glide away
    Lock them up
    In this heart of hearts

    Lyrics: Janne-Camilla Lyster

  • Prepared

    By MOON ontherun
    From the album Traces of Time

    Someone gave me
    a message that would change me
    My eye was blind, my heart was numb

    Someone judged me.
    It’s something that I won’t be
    I’ve come prepared,
    my door is shut,
    and I’m not easy prey 

    Now nothing can touch me
    Now nothing can move me
    When everything’s crazy
    I know what is in me
    I’ve been to the bottom
    I’ve seen how it can be
    Now nothing can ever touch me 

    Someone caught me
    pretending how it could be
    My sacrifice is all I’ve got

    Someone wasted
    the chances that we tasted
    Now I’m prepared,
    I’ve learned so much,
    and I’m not easy prey
     

    Now nothing can touch me
    Now nothing can move me
    When everything’s crazy
    I know what is in me
    I’ve been to the bottom
    I’ve seen how it can be
    Now nothing can ever touch me 

    Now nothing can touch me
    Now nothing can move me
    When everything’s crazy
    I know what is in me
    I’ve been to the bottom
    I’ve seen how it can be
    Now nothing can touch me
    Now nothing can move me
    Now nothing can ever

  • For A While

    By MOON ontherun
    From the album Traces of Time

    The moment is a line of blue and draws so far ahead
    It will paint you tomorrow
    I slip away into the flowing lights
    and open doors
    Follow me, then you may forget
    for a while

    Weʼre walking by
    The little things running away
    Weary hands and faces
    and humming sounds from all the hidden places
    Waiting for something or someone

    Our silhouettes
    in the great atlas of life
    Hard to define, still breathing
    So many signs mixing up the meaning
    of wanitng for something or someone
    to stay a while

    The wind will wash away our silly tunes and poetry
    Like a bird in a meadow
    A wilderness of half forgotten words
    and broken spells
    Close your eyes
    then you may forget
    for a while

    Weʼre walking by
    The little things running away
    Weary hands and faces
    And humming sounds from all the hidden places
    Waiting for something or someone

    Our silhouettes
    in the great atlas of life
    Hard to define, still breathing
    So many signs mixing up the meaning
    of wanitng for something or someone
    to stay a while

    A falling shade
    on the pathway as we run
    And with the sun painting us red
    We donʼt mind what was done and said
    Framing a thought
    Making it last
    just for a while

    A falling shade
    on the pathway as we run
    And with the sun painAng us red
    We donʼt mind what was done and said
    Framing a thought
    Making it last
    just for a while

    Lyrics: Janne-Camilla Lyster
