lyrics

You are not the moon
and I am not the sun
we are just two bodies in a room, in a city, in a country, in a song

The sun so blinding bright, so often whored in song
leaves us whole as milk every noon
and crying out in hunger every dawn

and I could do this every night and never tire at all
drift in and out of sleep but never ever fall
and in the morning I'll awake and shower myself new
my appetite like sharpest kitchen knives for just a little glimpse of you

and here on the bus pen in my hand
just moments away from your lips
I can feel as it blooms in my chest
and my eyes and my fingers and my toes and my lungs and my teeth
in my veins and my heels
in my skies and my trees
every part of my body that is furthest from my heart
I mean I really wanna see you tonight

you are not the moon
and I am not the sun
we are just two bodies tangled up
in your bed, in your room, on your street, in the city where we live, in a country we're not from
in a song I wrote in the sun on the morning bus as it carried my away with the hunger climbing up my ribs like wild vines
