why are you still awake?
asking the stars the same
they hungered for your sister
you starved for her to stay
a moment that still eats your heart
how you prayed for the car not to start
but it did

left you behind
you will learn
it happens all the time
you will sure learn too
little moth, aching crop

borrowed you a clean shirt
scares you now how much it's worth
you're not little, it's just bigger
to see the end of sleep aways
find a river for you
when there's no place left to store you

and when you do
don't you forgive
trust no head a saint
awake and soaking wet
don't you forget
stretch out and wait

raindrops on this moth
and all the times that made its world
you might get hit before you find
something worth diving for

left you behind
you will learn
it happens all the time
you will sure learn too
not to forget
trust no heart no saint
asleep and soaking wet
you will stretch out and wait
