The Edge of the Moon

Sung by Colm Keegan.

She sings him a song
He loves to listen
He reads her a story
She plays a sweet tune
Chopin and Mozart she loves with her heart
Her guardian angel looks down from the moon

He rings the bells lightly
She prays for their freedom
He stands at the pulpit
She stays in her room
Scarlatti and Haydn she loves with her heart
Her guardian angel looks down from the moon

She prays for the vision
He hopes she won’t see it
She wishes for winter
He knows it won’t come
Summer and Autumn cry whisper the wind song
Her guardian looks down from the moon

He closes the curtains
She takes to her bed now
He waits in the doorway
She stays in her room
Beautiful music, sweet songs filled with glory
Her guardian angel looks down from the moon

She waves her goodbye from the edge of the moon

      Via Colm Keegan’s blog on CelticThunder.com:

      And finally the ‘Edge of the Moon’. A song written by another Irish songwriter Hermione Hennessy, daughter of the very well-known Christie Hennessy. The song is a tragic love story, yet beautifully written where I take a narrative role telling the story of two people in love, but cannot act on their feelings because of various positions in which they find themselves. They spend so much time together yet because of their scenario he feels she’s as far away to him as the moon. As much as they want to act upon their love, the song concludes sadly with the woman as “she waves her goodbye from, the edge of the moon.”
