Moon at the Window
It takes cheerful resignation Heart and humility That's all it takes A cheerful person told me Nobody's harder on me than me How could they be And, nobody's harder on you than you Betsy's blue She says "Tell me something good!" You know I'd help her out if I only could Oh, but sometimes the light Can be so hard to find At least the moon at the window The thieves left that behind People don't know how to love They taste it and toss it Turn it off and on Like a bathtub faucet Oh sometimes the light Can be so hard to find At least the moon at the window The thieves left that behind I wish her heart I know these battles Deep in the dark When the spooks of memories rattle Ghosts of the future Phantoms of the past Rattle, rattle, rattle In the spoon and the glass Is it possible to learn How to care and yet not care Since love has two faces Hope and despair And pleasure always turns to fear I find At least the moon at the window The thieves left that behind At least they left the moon Behind the blind Moon at the window
