Lyrics

Gideon
Every night upon the deck I’d watch the turning of the stars,
All those constellations hanging from the cables and the rigging.
Or reflected on a dark lagoon,
I’d see your face upon the moon.

Meg
And now I’m here in front of you,
I wonder if you see me true,
The little girl I used to be or the woman in this face,
Like those stars we’ve travelled light years
Since we’ve stood upon this place.

Meg & Gideon
And they’d all stretch out towards infinity,
Getting further and further away.

Meg
You have to help me figure something out. There’s a good man. He bought a plot of land overlooking the river. A man I love, who’s good to me and Tom. And he asks me to marry him and I don’t say yes. Why is that?

Gideon
Because you know you care for someone else.

Meg
A boy who danced with me, made promises in the moonlight.

Gideon
I love you, Meg.

Meg
No, you love who I used to be. Arthur loves who I am.

It’s not the same moon in the sky,
And these are different stars,
And these are different constellations
From the ones that you’ve described.

Different rules of navigation,
Strange coordinates and lines,
A completely different zodiac
Of unfamiliar signs.

It’s not the same moon in the sky,
Those planets are misleading,

Gideon
So I shouldn’t even try to take a bearing or a reading?

Meg
Just accept that things are different,

Gideon & Meg
There’s no choice but to comply,


Meg
When smarter men have failed to see
The logic as to why

Gideon
It’s not the same moon,

Meg
It’s not the same moon,

Gideon & Meg
It’s not the same moon in the sky.
