05. Cardboard Moon

“All the lights are out tonight, we’re dancing slow we don’t need no lights” – I see a film in front of me. Kids dancing in the moonlight. Lovers grooving to the sound of the city as the trains roll by. I guess Cardboard Moon is the idea of using a prop to portray a better life. Like a cardboard moon hanging on a movie stage. And sometimes love is like that, we hang up the sun or the moon to convince ourselves that everything is ok, but in reality a cardboard moon never shines. Or does it?

Like two boats on a sea of fate,
We fought the storm and saved the freight,
You gave me love on a silver plate,
Underneath the cardboard moon

    All the lights are out tonight
    We’re dancing slow we don’t don’t need no lights
    I’m falling fast i went hold you tight
    Underneath the cardboard moon

    Like two boats on a sea of fate
    We braved the storm and saved the freight
    You gave me love on a silver plate
    Underneath the cardboard moon

    She said brother won’t you look at the way they move
    and he said no, no
    We’ve been dancing all our lives and we feel the groove
    and she said maybe it’s true

    Moon shines like a light on a perfect day
    We’ve got to move – underneath the cardboard moon
    We gotta groove – underneath the cardboard moon

    We always hurt the ones we need
    I said i’m sorry and she agreed
    I want to follow and not to lead
    Underneath the cardboard moon

    She said brother won’t you look at the way they move
    and he said no, no
    We’ve been dancing all our lives and we feel the groove
    and she said maybe it’s true

    Moon shines like a light on a perfect day
    We’ve got to move – underneath the cardboard moon
    We gotta groove – underneath the cardboard moon

    We saw the signs to a better day
    You could have left but i’m glad you stayed
    I saw you smile as the music played
    Underneath the cardboard moon

    We’ve got to move – underneath the cardboard moon
    We gotta groove – underneath the cardboard moon
