Walk Around the Moon Lyrics

Here's my first stab at it:

Walk Around the Moon

I saw a stranger walking in the woods
She was not quite like anyone I knew
Red Dress, Polka Dots
Shadows in her hair
She said, you take me and I take you there

Now she's going round and round inside of my head
I think I'm just a little too close to the edge
You took everything from me
And now I'm falling into this never-ending sea

I know you got your best to give to me
You know you hold me out (open up your eyes)
I know that it seems like I have crossed into a dream Since I have been flying, so fly

Big stand
Jump back
Run bow into you boy
Good boy
Oh stay
As high as your eyes
Sister
Twisted
My love to fly high
But I won't dare
You to give a little bit of
everything

I know you got your best to give to me
You know you hold me out (open up your eyes)
I know that it seems like I have crossed into a dream Since I have been flying, so fly

It's Blue, It's Red
...
my head
How can I
go to bed
Thin I'll walk around the moon instead

it's Blue, Red
Open
my head
How Can I
go to bed
Think I'll walk around the moon instead

We take it so far out
I was just a little close to the edge
And you pull me back
You said, that's not how it ends
Because you gave me everything
Flying into this kaleidoscope dream

And I know you got your best to give to me
You know you hold me out (open up my eyes)
I know that it seems like I have crossed into a dream Since I have been flying, so fly

It was blue, and it was red
Crowded window
Open my head
How can I go to bed
Think I'll walk 'round the moon instead

It was blue, it was red
Crowded window
Inside of my head
How can i go to bed
Think I'll walk 'round the moon instead

blue, red
window
head
i bed
walk 'round the moon instead

    I don't like it: it's boring and predictable. It's is the worst of the new songs.
    BTW, this will be another Seven - cool song for now, played every show and hated later.

    I wonder if Dave's talking about eating Amanita Muscaria? Red dress, polka dots...
    It definitely sounds like he's talking about tripping.

    Baddass southern rock groove during the verses. Some nice horns going on. The chorus is very catchy with some vocals from Buddy. Stefan does some great stuff during the chorus. It finishes with a flute solo from Jeff. I thought it was awesome. I'm surprised by some of the negative feedback in this thread.

    I think I could tolerate some of those lyrics if he was able to sing them at all.

    The first minute of that song was painful to hear Dave screech his way through. Why does he keep writing songs out of his vocal range?

    Exactly what I thought, we’ll said.

    "Crossed Into A Dream" would be a great album title, IMO.

    I liked it. Just listened again on Sirius. Will have to listen many more times for my real thoughts. The mix on Sirius is not doing it any favors.

    Will need some more listens, but those lyrics are all over the place. There’s some decent lyrics, but most of them are pretty bad and borderline unlistenable to me. Too bad. With good lyrics that could have been a winner.

    The song is good musically. Lyrics are OK. I just listened on XM & Buddy's parts are too loud. He needs to be more in the background, not a fan

    It's Blue, It's Red
    my head
    How can I go to bed
    Think I'll walk around the moon instead

    Really?

    Re: Walk Around the Moon Lyrics

    My first impression is that OATB and SFTW are a lot better. Maybe expectations were just a bit too high after Dave said it’s one of his favorite songs he’s written. That may be true for him, but it’s certainly not my favorite song he’s written.

    That may be a little clumsy, but I think it was fleshed out a little more in an ensuing verse:

    It was blue, and it was red
    Crowded window
    Open my head
    How can I go to bed
    Think I'll walk 'round the moon instead

    I hope he cleans up delivery in verses especially last one the because area sounds choppy.


    Also think it’s “big scare”

    If they’re road testing the songs, and this can evolve? It could become a good song. As is? Meh.

    It grew on me as it went on. The first minute was maybe the worst minute of music I’ve ever heard from the band. Dave was not able to tackle this song at all.
