Christopher Cross – Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do)

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 4:35 pm by LynxLee


I heard this somewhere in my office’s building and just remembered the good ol’ times. I like the start of the lyrics, here’s my interpretation:

“someone who turns you heart around” – makes yr heart beat good and have a change of heart
“you’re closing down the town” – staying out late until the last business in town closes
“wake up and it’s still with you” – it refers to “the feeling”
“between the moon and New York City” – trapped somewhere and not by anyone at night

Moon and New York City

Staying Up Late Floating in Between Spaces

The song is the theme song of this movie about a poor working girl who gets picked up by a drunken rich guy, who couldn’t manage to take care of himself for ten minutes on his own…if memory serves. They rescue each other. The song itself is simply about being caught somewhere between a dream world…a Cinderella fantasy and the real world…the dirty and ugly and unpleasant real world.
(Mary from Yahoo Answers)

I’ve been staying out late a lot these past few nights, and dare I say that my family has got concerned for a bit. Even my significant other. I know I won’t always get to be out like these. It’s that little appreciation knowing people trust you and love and concern about you. It’s that certain times you know you’re happy.

Once in your life you find her
Someone who turns you heart around and
Next thing you know you’re closing down the town
Wake up and it’s still with you
Even though you left her ‘way cross town
Wondering to yourself, “Hey, what’ve I done”

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy, but it’s true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
Best that you can do, best that you can do is fall in love

Once in your life you find her
Someone who turns you heart around and
Next thing you know you’re closing down the town
Wake up and it’s still with you
Even though you left her ‘way cross town
Wondering to yourself, “Hey, what’ve I done”

CHORUS:
When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy, but it’s true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
Best that you can do, best that you can do is fall in love

Arthur he does as he pleases
All of his life, he’s masters choices
Deep in his heart, he’s just, he’s just a boy
Living his life one day at a time
Showing himself a really good time
Laughing about the way they want him to be

CHORUS

CHORUS

CHORUS

When you get caught between the moon and New York city
I know it’s crazy
But it’s true
