moon is a harsh mistress lyrics – judy collins

see her how she flies
golden sails across the sky
close enough to touch
but careful if you try
though she looks as warm as gold
the moon’s a harsh mistress
the moon can be so cold
once the sun did shine
good lord, it felt so fine
the moon a phantom rose
though with the mountains and the pine
then the darkness fell
it’s hard to love her well
i fell out of her eyes
fell out of her heart
fell down on my face
i tripped and missed my star
fell and fell alone
the moon’s a harsh mistress
the sky is made of stone
the moon’s a harsh mistress
she’s hard to call your own
