The morning dew wets the parched lawn
It's been a year without a single drop
And though we wait, we will always wail
Forever now, we will always move
Mother due for the upteenth time
She holds it in with a torrid grin
The baby kicks folds his arms too quick
He never knew it was the folly that

Awaits
When the moon wanes
Awaits
When the moon wanes

I never thought that we would end this way
All of the stars lost in the evening haze
And when I freeze, I know they're watching me
Forever now, we will always move
Another scream for the love in bloom
And when I thaw you'll hear me howl to the moon
You'll circle me and I'll circle you
Bursting in and then the folly that

Love wanes
Away
Lest you wait,
Await

Our love is deep when the ice has gone
Up to our waists wet from the thaw
Will make a man out of the lonely boy
I'll never see, it will be obvious
And when we know we will overflow
We never knew we'd walk right off the plank,
Hold onto me as we fall away
Plunge into the blue and have a crutch or two

or two
The moon wanes
Away

    General CommentI don't know what this song means to me -- I just know I love it. I think it's about love -- how love comes after the thaw, love thaws, and love is like spring, AND it involves (mixing metaphors!) walking off planks, falling into oceans...getting in deep. Folly? Yeah. But as a friend said to me recently (on the subject of a fuck buddy): Fun.
