Barefoot McCoy – Ballad On A Blue Lagoon lyrics

The moon’s out on the run tonight,
Behind the silver spoon.
He’s casting out his little light
Across the blue lagoon.
The stars are in the water
Painting seashells green and blue.
Oh babe, where are you?

Someone’s sailing home tonight,
And everybody knows.
The torches on the shore burn bright,
And everyone’s so close.
Waiting for their long lost friend
To come into their view.
Oh babe, where are you?

The hopes are running high tonight,
And everyone is here.
The Cheshire Cat has brought his friends
The Mice and Musketeers.
The party’s full of faces
Every face I ever knew.
Oh babe, where are you?

The old man in the sea is out
He’s given me his catch.
The artist in the sand is here,
Working on a sketch.
He says it’s me he's drawing now,
Beside the sacred moon.
Oh babe, where are you?

It’s me the friends were waiting for,
And what a nice surprise
To feel the love I used to know,
To see it in their eyes.
Life is just a game to some,
To others, something true.
Oh babe, where are you?

I’m lying on the shore tonight,
Pleading with the moon.
“But what more could you ask for, sir,
Before the night is through?”
All my prayers were answered,
And all my dreams came true,
But babe, where were you?

Oh babe, where are you?
