There's a mountain on the side of the moon
I've been contemplating moving there soon
Figure if I gotta be alone
then I might as well have a good view

There's a street somewhere I hear is made of gold
We'll be walking on it there someday I'm told
Well I know it's quite a story but
deep inside I know that it is true

I'm an artist but I keep it deep inside
sometimes I color outside the lines
and I paint a pretty picture of a girl
and she looks like you
There was a letter in the mail today
said send me fifty dollars and I'll pray
and all your indiscretions and little bitty sins will fade away

There was a tower and they built it to the sky
and God he looked down with a sigh
said I guess you're never really gonna get it
and he changed the way we speak

there's a woman drawing water at a well
comes man he had a story there to tell
He said I see that you are thirsty
if you listen you won't have to drink again

He's an artist but he keeps it down inside
sometimes he colors outside the lines
and he paints some pretty pictures of the girls
and they look like you
He sent a letter in the mail today
said you don't have to listen what they say
cause I'm always gonna love you and I'm always gonna make your day
