Written by randy owen, teddy gentry, and greg fowler
I thought that you could fly, i thought that you had wings
I guess that i believed you'd never say goodbye
But my world stopped turnin' 'round, the stars turned upside down
It knocked me to the ground on my knees

Now there's a sad lookin' moon shinin' down on me
There's a sad lookin' sky as far as i can see
I always believed and i thought the stars could see
But there's a sad lookin' moon shinin' down on me

I shared with you my dreams, i gave you everything
I opened up my heart and i gave you my ring
Well i spent days and nights just thinkin' about the time
When you would be mine all my life


There's a sad lookin' moon
A sad lookin' moon
There's a sad lookin' moon
Shinin' down on me
