lyrics

Running from the alleyway he screamed, “Leave me alone! This can't be heaven! These reminders of failure can't possibly exist here!"

"But they do," Ziggy said. "This is where you finally close those pages. Your friend back there?"

He cringed at the word "friend."

"He still hasn't found the cover to his book. He will eventually. He has all of eternity to get there."

"What... what can I do for him? For myself? There has to be something!"

Ziggy sparkled momentarily, and then said, "Look here."

A window, like a mirror or a television screen, opened in the water. He approached and looked. He was shocked to see the wife of the homeless soul; the woman he'd once loved so much he had risked everything. God, it seemed ridiculous now. From this distance, from here, from eternity those moments seemed so shallow. Shallow like water.

"Tell her. Teach her. It may help you all." Ziggy said.

Slowly... she looked up. She had been writing alone at her desk; of course. She was beautiful and just as he had remembered her. Maybe this mirror showed you what you wanted to see or was actually looking back in time. The room was dark and her surroundings were hidden from him. But he could tell it was late at night as she gazed into her mirror wearing only a dressing gown. From here in the Ocean, her soul looked so bright. In fact, what he saw reminded him of a beautiful porcelain mug which had been shattered and put back together with gold in the cracks.

Across time and across love they locked eyes for one final time...

Sky in Moon (You Can't Hide It From Me)

Water and energy
Brain on fire
Stars down below
Silence in wire
Some bitter cold
Broke and live
Wings to sail
Wheels to drive

Sky in moon
Don't reside
Weep the stars
Just to slide
Sky... sky... sky in moon

In a life
Look up, it's a super moon
In a boat
Bring the tune

Sky... sky... sky in moon
Don't reside
Weep the stars
Just to slide
Oh sky... sky... sky in moon

I feel the water now
I feel the water now
I feel the water now
I feel the water now
You can hide it from everyone
But you can't hide it from me

Sky... Sky in moon
Don't reside
Weep the stars
Just to slide
Oh sky... sky... sky in moon
Oh sky... sky... sky in moon
Oh sky... sky... sky in moon
Oh sky... sky... sky in moon
