Mary Chapin Carpenter – Luna's Gone lyrics

Was it a light only she could see
A gypsy's spell, a mystery
Something to cause our girl to roam
Was it a song only she could hear
Whispering charms in her ears
Causing her to leave our happy home
Guess the light of the moon is all we've got to go on
Guess we're never gonna know and she's telling no one
Luna's gone, she's gone away
All day long I call her name
Luna's gone
There wasn't a sign of wanderlust
A quarrel, a breach of faith or trust
Nothing to give us one thin clue
Her eyes like the moon in a heart-shaped face
Astonishing speed, amazing grace
Little wild child we loved so true
Guess the wind in the trees is all she left behind her
Guess it's part of the plan to know we'll never find her
Repeat Chorus
Woo-ooo, the end has come, verse and chapter
Woo-ooo, I'll miss that girl forever after
Woo-ooo, she left us now the way she came
No amount of love could tame her, free as the wind that blows...
Instrumental Chorus
Guess she could resist the lure of the open spaces
You won't find her in Miami Beach or Vegas
Repeat Chorus 3x
