lyrics

Well it's a shame you know to think that we can't work this out
And now I've done all there is that's left to do.
And there's no sense in waiting by the telephone
Cause all the talking in the world won't bring me home.

You know I'll never be that little girl you married
Still clinging to the moon.
You can feel so helpless when you never have to grow up
And you're clinging like you do.

Well now I've said all there is that I could ever hope to say
And all the words could never take this pain away.
So now I'm spitting out useless energy that left me running ‘round have empty
On the filthy fumes that kept us half alive.

You know I'll never be that little girl you married
Still clinging to the moon.
Such a useless habit when you know you have it
But you're clinging like you do.

You know I thought I had it all when I was young and full of life,
Wishing on that shooting star that burns across the night.
Well all the hope in my child eyes
Could never set it right.

So you'll see it's not that bad and we can let it go
Cause the truth is always brighter when you know.
Now I'm standing at a distance and I'm firmly on the ground
And the moon she's just a light that guides me 'round.

You know I'll never be that little girl you married
Still clinging to the moon.
Such a useless habit, and you'll never quite shake it
But you can leave it on the moon.
