Blue Moon on the Rise - Matthews & While
From the CDEP ‘Blue moon on the rise’ While and Matthews

All along the beaches, the big ships are leaving
You’re tied to the edge of the sea
You’ve watched them come and go and how your heart reaches
Oh! How you long to be free
But in a careless moment, blinded by love
No more than a baby yourself
And now the young girl cries for the baby inside
He doesn’t want to hear it and she’ll never tell, so

Chorus
Hold tight your childish notion
A dream that never dies
You’re anchored here by the ocean
Blue moon on the rise

Wind blows, a child grows
Small steps, love flows
Between the woman and the child
And the child in the woman never goes, and it shows
It still shows

All along the beaches, the big ships are leaving
You’re tied to the edge of the sea.
You’ve watched them come and go and she’s watched them with you
Oh! How she longs to be free
Then in a selfless moment, guided by love
You gave her wings to fly
And as she pulled away from the edge of the sea
The blue moon turned gold in your eye so

Chorus
Hold tight your childish notion
A dream that never dies
Love’s anchored here near the ocean
Blue moon on the rise
Blue moon on the rise
