Bounce It Off The Moon

@ 1995 C. Carothers

I always come out here at night
When I can't think inside my room
And everything will be all right
After I bounce it off the moon

I tried to tell you on my own
But every time it falls to ruin
'Cause I'm no good at this alone
I have to bounce it off the moon

I look for the words
To tell you I love you
With no moon above you
But they won't come...

So, I wait quiet in the dark
I know the change is coming soon
And I will memorize my part
After I bounce it off the moon

Tonight the sky is cold and black
You need to know that love is true
I wish I were only holding back
And not depending on the moon

I dream of the day
That I'll win you over
But over and over
No, it won't come...

So, I wait quiet in the dark
I know the change is coming soon
I'll find the language of the heart
After I bounce it off the
