You are the moon for me.
Always, I look to the sky and search for you.
Sometimes you grace me with your face
You light my nights
You guard my days
Sometimes your smiling face looks down on me
I look up, and I'm reminded that I am not alone.
Distant, sweet sadness shines down on me from above.
I close my eyes and bask, alone.
But you're not always there
And of course I miss you when you're gone
My nights are dark and frightening without you.
But it seems you always return for me
Except when I need you.
You taught me to rely on myself
The way you move, the way you talk,
The way you see, the way you look at me
Makes me stop and think that there's something
More that I could be, wonder if there's something
More to me...
I'll never get another call from you
Hear your voice again, sometimes
Flat, sometimes with that cheerful strain
In a way that said so much
More than any of your words.
I'll never hold...
Looking out from my eyes
is a strange girl.
She's rather unorthodox
And graceless, but
No matter how hard I scrub, I just can't seem to get you out of my skin.
