Archivo Nacho Barcia Shoot the Moon



"The right art," cried the Master, "is purposeless, aimless! The more obstinately you try to learn how to shoot the arrow for the sake of hitting the goal, the less you will succeed in the one and the further the other will recede. What stands in your way is that you have a much too willful will. You think that what you do not do yourself does not happen."
Eugen Herrigel

Norah Jones "Shoot The Moon"

The summer days are gone too soon
You shoot the moon
And miss completely
And now you're left to face the gloom
The empty room that once smelled sweetly
Of all the flowers you plucked if only
You knew the reason
Why you had to each be lonely
Was it just the season?

Now the fall is here again
You can't begin to give in
It's all over

When the snows come rolling through
You're rolling too with some new lover
Will you think of times you've told me
That you knew the reason
Why we had to each be lonely
It was just the season

Tom Waits "I'll shoot The Moon"

I'll shoot the moon right out of the sky
For you baby
I'll be the flowers after you're dead

For you baby
I want to build a nest in your hair
I want to kiss you and never be there
I'll shoot the moon right out of the sky

For you baby

I'll shoot the moon for you
