Nanci Griffith – Grapefruit Moon lyrics

Grapefruit moon
One star shining
Shining down on me
I heard that tune and now I'm pining
Honey, can't you see
Every time I hear that melody
Something breaks inside
And the grapefruit moon
One star shining
Can't turn back the tide

Never had no destination
Could not get across
And you became my inspiration
Oh, but what a cost
Every time I hear that melody
Something breaks inside
And the grapefruit moon
One star shining
Is more than I can hide

Now I'm smoking cigarettes
And I strive for purity
And I slip just like the stars
Into obscurity
Every time I hear that melody
Puts me up a tree
And the grapefruit moon
One star shining
Is all that I can see
