Wild Irish Moon

Words and music by: Susan Cattaneo and Scarlet Keys

It was a day come fast
Never meant to last
Some love is just like that
Lights up like candle
Blows out like a match

It was a smile that came out of nowhere
A joy my heart had never known
A slice of day, a stop along the way
But I’ll never be the same

Like a wild Irish moon
Gone too soon, gone too soon
Rises up in a velvet sky
Then slips below the cloud line, waving goodbye
Saying, don’t you cry
We had our time to shine

It was ours for a moment
But it wasn’t ours to keep
Just a snapshot to remember
I’ll see you in my dreams

Like a wild Irish moon
Gone too soon, gone too soon
Rises up in a velvet sky
Then slips below the cloud line, waving goodbye
Saying, don’t you cry
We had our time to shine

Once. Just once.
The two of us, the two of us
Once. Just once.
Oh, please, let it be enough

Like a wild Irish moon
Gone too soon, gone too soon
Rises up in a velvet sky
Then ducks behind the cloud line, waving goodbye
And I won’t cry
We had our time to shine
We had our time to shine
We had our time to shine

It was a day come fast
