lyrics

with the sun setting on
the lemon trees
i’d climb the hills
behind her home

beneath Strathbogie views
at age twenty-two
i’d wait there as we’d planned
for well I knew

that soon she’d come
as would the stars
from midst the blue and
in my arms she’d whisper true
while looking down
that big old hollow moon

but then came the war
and the burning of the trees
the tearing of the scars
that only grew

through the clouding
of the sky
i watched her as she fell
for someone knew

the brilliance of her skin
a picture took it all and
i held it to my heart
as darkness grew

through the gun fire
and the napalm fumes
i held her screaming
to that big old hollow moon

hollow moon
under that great big hollow moon
our love ran out too soon
hollow moon my love
we’re watching water
threw the cliffs, rush over

time moved away
the hours into days
here I am a man of 54
in civilian life

with kids and loving wife, and
a picture wrapped up
in a bottom draw

but sometimes I stand
by the windows here at night
and all the things that once
I thought I knew

again I feel them to be true
as I look up to that big old hollow moon

hollow moon
under that great big hollow
our love ran out too soon

hollow moon my love
say you’ll meet me up above
and stroll laughing in my arms forever

hollow moon
my love
say you’ll meet me up above
and fall laughing in my arms forever
