I was recently introduced to this song by a dear friend who is, in turn, a close friend of the Irish singer, Eamon Keane.
It is sad and very beautiful.
The following is from his website:
Eamon wrote Hang The Moon after his father died suddenly. They hadn’t spoken for a year, prompting a song about regret and things left unsaid. It also, though, about the unspoken love that lays underneath:
“I know the tears you keep inside,
I see the scars you try to hide,
And just because I don’t call your name,
Doesn’t mean that I don’t know your pain”
