Full Moon, Starry Night

by Kara Square and Piero Peluche

/

about

Staring up at the night sky with tears in her eyes, Kara Square wrote this lullaby for her father. It is the last thing she sang to him.

Piero Peluche's arrangement features the Turkish kemençe and the Indian bulbul tarang, powerfully supporting the emotional lyrics with a mournful, yet celebratory world music timbre.

This song is dedicated to William J. Sherman with love.

lyrics

Full moon, starry night
Mars glows on right
Clear skies, not eyes
Hazy tears, cloud sight
Crisp, cold, ever still
Heart breaks, always will

We wait, we wait, we wait, we wait

Waiting as you gasp for breath
Waiting as your heart beats too fast
Waiting as your body breaks
Waiting as you separate

Full moon, starry night
Mars glows on right
Clear skies, not eyes
Hazy tears, cloud sight
Crisp, cold, ever still
Heart breaks, always will

Let go, let go, let go, let go

We are all right here
You look around and hear our voices
We all share our love for you
And say goodbye, farewell,
Sleep well and dream

Full moon, starry night
Mars glows on right
Clear skies, not eyes
Hazy tears, cloud sight
Crisp, cold, ever still
Heart breaks, always will
