Thriving Ivory – Angels On The Moon lyrics
Do you dream that the world will know your name,
So tell me your name (tell me your name)
And do you care, about all the little things,
Or anything at all (or anything at all),

I wanna feel all the chemicals inside,
I wanna feel (I wanna feel),
I wanna sunburn just to know that I'm alive,
To know I'm alive (to know if I'm alive),

Don't tell me if I'm dying,
Cause I don't wanna know,
If I can't see the sun,
Maybe I should go,
Don't wake me cause I'm dreaming,
Of angels on the moon,
Where everyone you know,
Never leaves too soon

Do you believe in the day that you were born,
Tell me do you believe, (do you believe)
And do you know that every day's the first of the rest of your life,

Don't tell me if I'm dying,
Cause I don't wanna know,
If I can't see the sun,
Maybe I should go,
Don't wake me cause I'm dreaming,
Of angels on the moon,
Where everyone you know,
Never leaves too soon,

This is to one last day in the shadows,
And to know a brothers love,
This is to New York City angels,
And the rivers of our blood,
This is to all of us,
To all of us,

So don't tell me if I'm dying,
Cause I don't wanna know,
If I can't see the sun,
Maybe I should go,
Don't wake me cause I'm dreaming,
Of angels on the moon,
Where everyone you know,
Never leaves too soon,

Yeah you can tell me,
All your thoughts about the stars,
That fill polluted skies,
And show me where you run to,
When no one's left to take your side
But don't tell me where the road ends,
Cause I just don't wanna know,
No, I don't wanna know,

Don't tell me if I'm dying,
Don't tell me if I'm dying.

    This song reminds me of my uncle who has Pancreatic Cancer. It can't be cured, so he'll die. But he never acknowledges the fct that he's dying. He lives his life like everyone else. He probably enjoys it more than anyone else, actually. This sng just fits his situation.
    And I also agree with the people who think it's about aids. It fits very well there too. So stop giving their commnts a thumbs down.

    This is a very powerful song (for me), I just lost my son 13years old on labor day, He was battling lukemia and just had his second bone marrow transplant which was a sucess, but the chemicals of the radiation and kimo were too hard on his veins his passing was extremely quick, for such a short time that he was on this earth he had a great impact on alot of people I think he would have loved this song I think the lyrics would mean alot to him.

    Although my opinion may not be well received, I believe that this song (for me) is about America. I can only support this perspective based on "angels on the moon" (our Astronauts from the late 60's) and the lyrics that direct attention to the tragedy of 9/11 (New York City angels and the rivers of our blood). The lyrics "don't wake me cause I'm dreaming of angels on the moon" may pertain to the fact that we are still waxing nostalgic about our accomplishments in the space program from years past (and the international stardom being the result), and as a result, have become naieve about our mortality as a nation. The song's overall theme, although energetic, is laced with melancholy concerning not wanting to know "if I'm dying", and this may be directly related to our terrible financial and cultural crisis, something that very well may destroy America. We may, in fact, be in denial about our own death as a country.

    Now that I hear this song it reminds me of my meemee. She died of breast cancer but fought so hard and even as she was living with this, she lived life as if she had no such disease and still acted like wonderwoman. She did everything and was the rock that everyone leaned on. When the cancer got to her brain and I celebrated my birthday with her she got so excited because she thought it was hers. We let her open the gifts and to see the beautiful smile was more important than anything else in the world. She died ten days later on christmas day. Now her mom and dad and my uncle which is her son just dies a month ago at age 44 they are all together and happy and not sick.

    Who cares what the lead singer is. Does it really matter if he is g** or a "fag". The song is still one of the best songs I have heard in a while, that doesn't have to do with breaking up with someone and being lonley. I personally don't think this song is about 9/11 because he says this it to, new york city angles. He is remebering them. The song he is singing about don't tell me if I'm dying and the peopele on the planes and in the buildings that day had no idea. It is about how we all make an impact on this world today. For me personally I can totally relate to this song because I have always said since I was 5 and saw my auntie die a slow death from breast cancer that I did not want anyone to tell me if I was dying because as soon as I found out I would be miserable and I just want to live a happy life. But this meaning is for me personally so I hope no one takes offense to it.

    I think it is about a person that knows they are dying but wants to live as if they are okay so they ask don't tell me if I'm dying cuz I don't want to know. Then I feel that the part about dreaming is saying that they have come to terms with the fact that they are dying and does not want to be woke because of the beautiful heaven they see with all the people that has died in the past. This song reminds me of my grandma that died of cancer in 2007. Grandma I love you and miss you.

    This song reminds me of my best friend who passed away and when I hear this song I can't help but to cry and think about her being happy and smiling. I miss her so much. She was in a car accident, along with my best friend another girl who was driving passed away but the guy they hit was fine. I remember her when I hear this because it's such a sweet song.

    My best friend is fighting cancer; she has Stage 4 colon cancer @ age 30! This song reminds me of her because when she met with her oncologist shortly after her diagnosis, he told her she had two years. She told me that she wished he wouldn't have told her. She said she doesn't want to live life looking at a calendar. She said she didn't want to know. This song is very powerful.

    There is another version. Longer and with more piano. That I think is so much better! Yall should really try to find it. Some of the lyrics are:.
    I wanna live, just to see the day where we all get along. I wanna scream, scream my song out loud for everyone to hear.
    Do you believe in the day that day you were born, tell me do you believe. And do you know that every day's the first of the rest of your life.
    And you know the pain that brought you here today so what can you do? And you know the tears for losing those you love when yesterdays gone. So please remember not to waste another day, not to worry your mind. And please forgive me for taking so much time to get back on my feet.
    Don't wake me b/c I'm dreaming of angels on the moon. Where everyone you know never leaves too soon.
    And i'll fight it out cuz I know I can, and I'll sleep tight when your not here oh no. I wont surrender.
    This is to one last day in the shadows.

    I do agree that this song is about aids. "dont tell me that im dying" they don't want to hear they have been diagnosed with hiv. The way life would change if they were to know.
    This song could also be from someones point of view that has someone that is close die. They don't want to be waken because they are dreaming and although the person has left, they are still with them in their dreams and their heart.
    This song could mean so many different things.

    I can't derive any 9-11 meaning from this song. To me, it is a song regarding aids, hence the "angels" reference, which could refer to the film "City of Angels". "This is to one last day in the shadows (shadows=keeping sexuality hid and at your death, it will be revealed), And to know a brother's love". "I wanna feel, all the chemicals inside I wanna feel"- the huge amount of medications people living with aids must take day to live another day.

    When I first heard this song it took my breath away. One of the most emotion evoking songs I've ever heard(lump in my throat) and when I read the lyrics, it made me think what kind of mark will I leave with this world and the people I've touched or have I touched anyone at all.
    Have I had an effect on anyone, how do we ever really know this. I can only hope through my everyday life that I can achieve this. Lpc.

    It just amazes me that this one song can mean soo many different things to so many different people. I have heard this song interpreted so many different ways. These lyrics can bring inspiration, reminders, hope, and so many different things. To me, it is just sort of a reminder to keep going, don't look to the end. I have heard people say they think he may be speaking of cancer, some of the tragities of 9-11, that hes speaking of life being surreal. All different things.

    I'm not to sure why but this song reminds me of my own situation in life right now. I'm rahter depressed, but when I listen to this song, it's like he's saying (or singing xd), "Keep holding on and live the way you want to."
    It's an amazing song, and tho I originally didn't like the song (or Thriving Ivory), it's grown on me and I lsiten to it all the time now. *^_^*

    I feel that this is one of those songs that is meant to touch each and every individual in their own way. This song may take on one meaning for you and another for me. This songs is meant to make you feel. And by reading all of the comments, it has done just this. Music and lyrics are meant to touch us and this song was actually sent to me via email from an ex-boyfriend that I recently emailed to express my gratitude for him not being able to commit when we were together because I am now getting married and had things turned out differently with him and I, my life would have never taken this path. I listened and listened and listened to this song this morning and haven't been able to get it out of my mind. This song is about the feeling it provides to each of us when we listen to it. Love it!

    I believe this song is about how people go through troubles in life where they feel like they are dying, when no one recognizes their existence, when there is no one to go running to when in need. But it's also about how even when no one is there. There are always angels guiding you to achieve what you want, get recognized, and live life to the fullest. This hints to the name "angels on the moon" you aren't dead so there aren't "angels in heaven" but instead angels on the moon. The moon you look up to every night when you are wishing upon stars to be what you want to be.
