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 Icould be, wonder if there's something
More to me than the me that I see.
Now is it just me, or does the whole room
Stop and turn and stare when you come in,
At a beauty you can't see?
I'm sorry that my words
Aren't enough to save you from your self
But please don't cry; if it helps
I love you and that's all I ever want to do -
What's that? You love me too?
To be loved by such a beautiful you
Makes me wonder if I...
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 you to my chest again,
Feel your acid pain pumping through my bones
I'll never cry myself hoarse again, suppress
Another sob for you because
I lost you.
It's funny how that telephone wire
Transmitted so much more than words.
And now when I lie awake at night,
And think of all the things I'd like to do,
There will be that much more venom
In my bite, because (as much as)
Looking out from my eyes
is a strange girl.
She's rather unorthodox
And graceless, but
