lyrics

She carries the moon on a string like a helium balloon.
Her eyes are lakes of a deep, deep blue but I'm a colour blind fool.

She takes me away on a beautiful boat to say I could never love you.
The pull and the sway of the swollen waves you know I never asked you to.

We'd sit up late by the light of the moon and she'd tell me all that she knew,
Of the vacuum of outer space and how loneliness is all that grew.
We floated for time warmed by her words and cooled by the glow of the moon.
This heavenly body by my side was enough to make my blood swoon.

She took me away on a beautiful boat to say I could never love you.
The pull and the sway of the swollen waves you know I never asked her to.

One morning I awoke to an empty boat, a short note and the moon afloat.
She never left my mind, just space and time, for years I awoke so tired.
Now I'm not an idiot, I don't believe in love and certainly not angels
But sometimes the mind, it gets so strangled, you see things from a tangled angle.

She took me away on a beautiful boat to say I could never love you.
The pull and the sway of the swollen waves you know I never asked her to.
She took me away on a beautiful boat to say I could never love you.
The pull and the sway of the swollen waves, sometimes it's beautiful being doomed.
