lyrics

the moon draws lines of yellow through the blinds
across the sheets
it watches you sleep

bloomington got father dancing
no matter what his woes
stars would shower and vertebrae
shuddered in their bones

i was not like the others
but i tried but i tried

the moon is chasing cars and shadows on the walls
the bird that i killed
the fairy tales i’ve told

bloomington got mother jumping
higher than the sky
clear as night and let’s stay late
i’ll take a short sleep in the day

the moon shines the brightest on bloomington
it’s eye on a lover
it watches me sleep

i am not like the others
but i try but i try
