about

This is a breakup song. I phoned it in from the moon. If you don't believe me, listen to the song. It was born from a naive melody on a lightweight Casio PT-20 with its built in rhythm and automated backing chords, I turned into a big production with a multitude of things including timpani, strings, and the Hornicator.

lyrics

Lost On the Moon in June

My one and only's gone
Now London's upside down
Wild city, screaming, glistening
I don't see your glow or hear your singing

Beause I'm still on the Moon
Heartbroken in June
Sweet memories hide everywhere
Every corner, every crater

My friends try talking me down
I'm grateful they're around
They will keep me hanging on
But in my heart right now I am so gone.... gone gone gone

Though she's no longer here
We still talk in my head
How about that one? Oh right, we have done
Then lets try this new one instead

She's somewhere out there
With feathers in her hair
Maybe she's found someone lately
That makes her as happy as she once did me
