And I don't know why
the moon played such a cruel trick on the tide
they're either here for life
until the moon explodes
until the sea dries up

and i don't know why
the moon played such a cruel trick on the tide
they're either here for life
until the moon explodes
will the sea dry up?

sun-smudged peach moon
softer than an ice cream cone in june
and i don't know why
lightning strikes so perfectly at night (x8)

yeah
all my life i've been waiting for
a sign to say move on and tonight
all the salt that's in the air feels right (x10)

moon moon with your skin so rough
makes you look so tuff
deflect an asteroid for us

poor moon no one looks up to you
your mystique is through
you're a blind spot like the

sun smudged peach moon
softer than an ice cream cone in june
and I don't know why
thunder purrs so strikingly at night

    General CommentI always thought it was mystique not stink. Now I don't know.

    I think it's a tune about a relationship gone (going) bad. Some say that opposites attract, but I read a study that in fact the longest lasting relationships are with couples who have a lot more in common with one another. But when have you ever met a couple of sames who don't overflow with boredom?

    Kind of a parallel to the perfection of the Unicorns I guess, like a lot of their other songs.
