lyrics

Outside, the moon was a dollar at arm’s length, so bright that while I stood there watching in captured quiet at the railroad crossing, you hid inside, under cover of closed blinds. But under the surface, moonlight spilled in. Like a deep sea fish, your outline filled in glaring up at the distant intrusion, so dark inside, but transparent where light shines.

All you need to do is let it through you. All you need to say’s what you’re compelled to. Healing will come in time. You will put up a fight, but you are sweeping the tide. It’s not easy to win against the moon.

Why hate the love that you’ve refused? Your darling life is not unused to it. But you hide like bugs in the kitchen, so dark inside until I come switching to find you’re locked so tight I cannot see in... So dark inside, I won’t know until you confide.

All you need to do is let it through you. All you need to say’s what you’re compelled to. Healing will come in time. It will all soon be fine. Lord knows you think you're right, but you are losing your life. You are sweeping the tide, and it's not easy to win against the moon.
