Anne and Joe are in the car
Driving to the sea
Life spread out in front of them
So much they will be

Watching birds and clouds and waves
Making all their plans
Endless strings of future days
Stretch across the sand

Anne says to Joe, Look up in the sky
That's a place that we could go, a place that we could fly
But I'm content to hold you here in my arms on the dunes
We'll keep each other safe from harm
Make love in the afternoons
And we'll build a giant balloon

Let's shoot the moon! 

Anne and Joe are on the road
Driving 'cross the land
Girls and oranges in the back
Future firm in hand

Summer breezes, winter snows
Miles and miles behind
Miles further yet to go
Destination undefined

Anne says to Joe, look up in the sky
That's the place we thought to go, a place that we would fly
But I'm content to travel the highways with you
Let's park the car and look for stars
It's gonna be night time soon
We're building our giant balloon

Let's shoot the moon! 

Flowers swaying in the grass
Branches in the wind
A million heartbeats now have passed
He looks at her and grins

Joe says to Anne, look up in the sky
That's the place I'll wait for you, the place that we will fly
And every night you'll know that I'm still watching over you
Travel on until the dawn
Do things that you want to do

But don't be in a hurry, love, there's still plenty of time
I have to say, it's a beautiful day
I feel I can finally fly

I'm your midnight and you're my noon
You're my dish and I'm your spoon
And we built an amazing balloon

We shot the moon!
