Pull down the moon

Category: Music


it's a hopeless case, there's no getting her
but your fate is sealed, no forgetting her

gave her all you had, nothing's reaching her
it's the moon she wants, it's the witch in her

when you saw her eyes and the night in them
took her phantoms in, never fighting them

took her by the hand, cold and careless
led her up the old creaky staircase

it's a narrow ledge where you're balancing
looking down on her haunted palaces
shut your eyes and know she will laugh at you
she will never come close to loving you

how insane it is, there’s no pleasing her
pulling down the moon would be easier
how insane it is, such a mystery
but you touch the moon, hear it whispering

in her tangled hair stars are shimmering
on the narrow ledge she is shivering
arms around the moon, she will laugh with you
it’s a hopeless case, she’s in love with you

it's the moon she wants, it's the witch in her
pulling down the moon would be easier
it's the moon she wants, it's the witch in her
pulling down the moon would be easier
