Who had no traits of any value but his smile
I met a man who had no yearn or
claim to fame
Who was content to let life pass him for a while
And I was sure that all I ever wanted
Was a life like the movie stars led
And he kissed me right here, and he said,
"I'll give you
and the moon and a soul to guide you
And a promise I'll never go
I'll give you hope to bring out all the life inside you
And the strength that will help you grow.
I'll give you truth and a future that's twenty times better

I met a man who lived his life out
on the road
Who left a wife and kids in
on a whim
I met a man whose fire and passion always showed
Who asked if I could spare a week to ride with him
But I was sure that all I ever wanted

And it never changed
And it never grew
I never dreamed
And I woke one day
And I looked around
And I thought, "My God...
I'll never have the moon
