There is no moon
Reflecting in your eyes
No romantic midnight skies
No motive to disguise
It's not your man
That you're dreaming of
Your heart couldn't care enough
You're too tired to be in love

You want to know
What's that godawful sound
Something's dragging on the ground
The machine is breaking down
And you never asked
For more than you deserve
No shallow poetic words
From a song you've never heard

It's not your man

It's nobody's fault
Sometimes these things
Come to a screeching halt
Regretful of the past
You know these things don't last
A lifetime's not so fast
These things will never last

It's not your man
That you're dreaming of
Your heart couldn't care enough
You're too tired to be in love
You're too tired to be in love

    General CommentI'm surprised no one has commented on this song. Devotchka is really good at explaining how things fall apart without making you feel completely empty at the end of the song.

    This song makes me think that the girl is just over her boyfriend (or an ex that won't go away) and their relationship is the machine that's breaking down. It was so great and so new at the time but now the machine is rusted and old.
