lyrics

Someday the moon will start retreating
and the California coast will erode away
and all the video stores that went out of business
will live the holy age of the rose parade

I just want to hear you breathing one more time
I just want you here to stay

Who can say if the moonlight is receding
if not the friends you made when you rode away
but there are no full stops or seasons greetings
just the hole you made when you rode away

I just want to hear you breathing one more time
I just want you here to stay

It’s a phrase that ain’t often worth repeating
but the things I love always go away
It’s a phase of the moonlight on the ceiling
when I was running out of the novocaine
