Loviní Hand

Thereís a pale moon rising tonight in the Eastern sky.
Iím just sitting here, staring at his lonesome face.
I canít tell my troubles to the moon, ícause heís up too high,
But even the moon can see that Iím out of place.

Now I donít suppose thereís nothing wrong with being alone,
And know that thereís times every manís going to feel fear.
But it donít seem a manís heart ought to be cold as a stone,
Or shaking to the bottom of his soul like a wildwood deer.

But I look up in the sky, and the stars are wrong.
And I try to get my bearings, but the rhyme and the reasonís gone.
My thoughts are lost and scattered, like a poem written in the sand.
Iím reaching out in the darkness, but I canít find a loviní hand.

Now, the highwayís a temptation: it could take me back from where I came.
And thereís a rifle on the wall could send me someplace that I never been.
But thereís nowhere in this wide and weary world where I can feel the same
As before I failed to fear my fate, and fell into this fix Iím in.

And thereís a pale moon rising in the Eastern sky tonight.
Heís seen a lot of lonely loversí lucky breaks ainít broke quite like they planned.
It donít seem to matter any more if it was wrong or right:
Now Iím paying with my soul for something I can never understand.

Still I look up in the sky, but the stars are wrong.
And I try to get my bearings, but the rhyme and the reasonís gone.
My thoughts are lost and scattered, like a poem written in the sand.
Iím reaching out in the darkness, but I canít find a loviní hand.
