Well, first I have to tell you that I'm not insane
And that once I was a famous archaeologist named
In a recent expedition in a distant land.
I just happened to be passing my hand in the sand

And then I stopped, looked, and then I was hooked.
I saw a flash, then a sparkle from a moonstone,
Then the mist started, started to clear.
I saw a face, a face in the moonstone,
And then it started to disappear

Well, I walked and walked and never talked
For many days,
And without a friend a desert is a lonely place.
I was just about to turn around and make way home
When something told me that I had to see it again.

And then I stopped, looked, and then I was hooked.
I saw a flash, then a sparkle from a moonstone,
Then the mist started, started to clear.
I saw a face, a face in the moonstone,
And then it started to disappear.

A vu ray, a vu ray.
A vu ray.

I saw a flash, then a sparkle from a moonstone
Then the mist started, started to clear
I saw a face, a face in the moonstone
And then it started to disappear,
And then it started to disappear,
And then it started to disappear.
