about

written in the conservatory of my friends house in Delvin, Ireland a good few summers ago after visiting the old abandoned graveyard which lies right beside the ruins of St. Mary's Church on Main Street.

lyrics

When the moon comes out

To fall in love they say is easy
Maybe I'm the other kind
But tonight I'll take my chances
I will ask you to be mine

When the moon comes out
By the old churchhouse
We will say our vows
When the moon comes out

The old graveyard it lies abandoned
Of ancient times it tells a tale
Of lovers, once alive, now faded
And we're all going down the same

When the moon comes out
By the old churchhouse
We will say our vows
When the moon comes out

There's a shadow of a doubt we have to trace
Cause I see your thoughts moving on your face
When you dream – when you dream

I won't say it'll last forever
But then again, who knows, it might
I wanna love you now or never
Don't worry 'bout the end of time

When the moon comes out
By the old churchhouse
We will say our vows
When the moon comes out
