lyrics

The man in the moon only comes out at night. You reel me in out of the sun away from the light. Hook in my heart, my feet up up up off the ground. Easy to come up....but much harder coming down.

Among the stars you sleep alone. Many people have tried and failed to claim you for their own. I hold my fingers up and there you fit just like a bone. And I'm the dog that keeps trying to drag you in from the cold.

But as the seasons change you know you're getting older. But "I'll never change. Don't think that's ever gonna change. And you can find me after midnight in the same old place, you can find me in the mountains in the same old cave. Don't think that's ever gonna change."

As I look down at the world below, with a wink it fits so perfectly inside my littlest toe. And with every dance this strange romance leaves my blood cold. In your pale moonlight well it's fight or flight so look how I evolve!

I toss and turn with the tides, my skin to scales, my nails to claws, red beady eyes. I yearn for the breeze but learn how to breathe without the skies. I say 'couldn't we just leave, couldn't we just try?' You say...

That as the seasons change you know you're getting colder. But "I'll never change. Don't think that's ever gonna change. And you can find me after midnight in the same old place, you can find me in the mountains in the same old cave. Don't think that's ever gonna change."

"And you can find me after midnight in the same old place, you can find me in the mountains in the same old cave, and you can come here with your flag but I will remain unclaimed!"

Don't think that' s ever gonna change.
