La Lune

February 1, 2021

Link: https://youtu.be/M6KFridC1dM 

(gentle guitar picking)
Verse 1:
Speaker
La Lune, why'd he leave me so blue?
I was gentle and good, just like he said that I should.
La Lune, Why'd he leave me so soon?
We'd only just begun - flowers reaching for the Sun.
La Lune.

(strumming begins)
Moon
Oh my darling, please don't you worry. 
Your heart is made of gold and your spirit's so much stronger than you know.
He may have left you in the dark, but you haven't got that far to go.


(back to guitar picking)
Verse 2:
Speaker
La Lune, I don't know what to do.
I feel like I'm in pieces, shattered 'neath the light of the moon.

Bridge:
Speaker
La Lune, he said he'd be true and I believed him, really does that make me the fool?

(strumming once more)
Moon
Oh my darling, please don't you worry.
There is love in all you do and there's nothing more that I can ask of you.
He may have broken your heart, but you haven't got that far to go.


(gentle picking, louder than before)
Verse 3:
Speaker
La Lune, I wish I could see you.
I bet your voice is sweeter than honey, softer than a lullaby's tune.
(strumming quietly, triumphant)
Oh, la Lune, I think I'm nearly through. 
I can see the horizon, a golden reminder of youth.
(picking again)
la Lune, how'd we get here so soon?
Am I ready for this? What if I try and I miss?
Oh, la Lune.

(strumming)
Final refrain:
Moon
Oh my darling, please don't you worry.
You have finally made it through and I believe
the rest is up to you. 
He's a distant memory, and when you think of me, look to the blue.


(quiet picking to finish)

Note: Ideally, I'd love to have violins playing over the parts of the moon to emphasise it's otherwordly-ness and musicality. They would undercut the melody to provide harmonies and could swell to provide tone, particularly in the final refrain.
