The Moon (I Wanted)

lyrics by the Poison Girls

I wanted the moon
you gave me an ice-cream
I wanted to talk about love
You wanted a free ride
I drove to Harlow
You looked like you wanted to run
I offered you biscuits
you sprayed me with stardust
I wondered if you had a heart
You wanted it both ways
I told you that no way
Could we take it all back when we part

I walked round in circles
We both kept our distance
But I couldn't keep out of your eyes
And while we were drinking
I couldn't help thinking
What a sweet surprise

I could tell it was serious
you fell about laughing
I couldn't believe it was true
I gave you an apple
I watched while you bit it
I saw you were watching me too
I wanted it easy
you stayed in the morning
You said it's too late to turn back
A crazy beginning
a race with no winning
A double edged circular track

I wanted the moon
you gave me an ice-cream
I wanted to talk about love
I wanted the moon
you said take it, I left it
Cos you only said it in fun
It was like I was dying
you played at doctors
You gave me sweets from a jar
You wouldn't stop playing
I couldn't stop running
We made it to Mars.
