I love the thought of you, just the same. And one day soon, when your lips meet mine It will be the last stop for the lonely We'll leave lonely behind. Verse #3 And when I awake to find it's only a dream a new dawn is breaking with that same old theme I know your out there I just don't know your name Bridge This journey won't end every stop looks the same trying to find my one and only on this loneliness train Chorus #2 Even though, I don't know, Your name. I love the thought of you, just the same And one day soon, when your lips meet mine It will be the last stop for the lonely We'll leave lonely behind.

Moonbeams from a-far Chorus He was falling for her shiny star She was lighting up his moon beams from a far so when sun goes down the moon starts to rise The big bang's gonna happen and the sparks fly when the dark side of the moon sees the light Instrumental Verse 3 They say the full moon came out so bright in the middle of the day and the sun grew dark and black in a most peculiar way It caused a solar eclipse when he kissed her on her lips It was a sunny honeymoon all the way Chorus two times and end
