4th Place
“Till Lightning Strikes The Moon”
Marc A. Turner
Covington, Georgia

All these years have passed
And I think of you most days
Your smile, your laugh
The things I didn’t say

Each time I held you close
So easy to recall
And now I wonder
If you think of me at all

Did I let your love slip by
Did I even stand a chance
To have you by my side
Instead of having these regrets

In the night when I close my eyes
I’ll always dream of you
‘Till rain falls on the sun
And lightning strikes the moon

(Bridge)

I’ve searched the stars
And the ocean to the shore
I’ve been down a thousand roads
And looked in every door
I can’t find another you
Just blue, endless blue

No it’s much too late
For me to call
The curtains closed
On me having it all

Out of all the hearts
Only yours was true
There will always be a place
Here in the heart for you
‘Till rain falls on the sun
And lightning strikes the moon

(Bridge)

Smoke and embers
A shadow of a heart
Ashes of a love
Scattered in the stars
Of blue, just blue
‘Till rain falls on the sun
And lightning strikes the moon
