It’s Not the Same Moon (Broadway Version) lyrics

Sting

Gideon:
Every night upon the deck I'd watch the turning of the stars
All those constellations hanging from the cables and the rigging
All reflected on the 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 these stars we've travelled light years since we’ve stood upon this place

Both:
And they'd all strеtch out towards infinity
Getting further and further away

Mеg: (spoken)
You have to help me figure something out. There's a good man bought a plot of land looking over 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

Both:
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

Both:
It's not the same moon in the sky

Meg:
Goodbye Gideon
