Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I can hear you when I wake
I can see you when I dream
I can feel you when I break
As you hold me as you beam
Every night you fill the sky with new revelations
Misty moon I’m your loon
Let’s rock the nation

[Pre-Chorus]
Heaven knows we are
Made perfect we are
Tailored by the stars
Once we set our mind
We become divine
Take my hand, it’s time

[Chorus]
I cross my heart, I tear down the firewalls
I cross my heart, I’m stronger than cannonballs
I’ll never sto-o-o-o-op
Luna moon me up, to the to-o-op
I’ll never sto-o-o-o-op
Luna moon me up, to the to-o-op

[Verse 2]
If you’re stuck in all the noise
Let me be your secret voice
If you think that you don’t count
Let me prove you different now

[Pre-Chorus]
Heaven knows we are
Made perfect we are
Tailored by the stars
Once we set our mind
We become divine
Take my hand, it’s time

[Chorus]
I cross my heart, I tear down the firewalls
I cross my heart, I’m stronger than cannonballs
I’ll never sto-o-o-o-op
Luna moon me up, to the to-o-op
I’ll never sto-o-o-o-op
Luna moon me up, to the to-o-op

I cross my heart, I tear down the firewalls
I cross my heart, I’m stronger than cannonballs
I’ll never sto-o-o-o-op
Luna moon me up, to the to-o-op
I’ll never sto-o-o-o-op
Luna moon me up, to the to-o-op

[Outro]
I cross my heart
