Did you see the moon tonight? Did you know it's made of dust?
Did you hear they found another way to ruin your day?
Did you see the stars tonight? Did you know they're made of tears?
Did you hear they found a perfect way to take away your everything?

You could phone in sick and sneak in to a movie with me
We'll share some tears and a flask full of wine
Later we can cruise the scene like skaters on longboards and then
Head to the creek and catch a jar of fireflies

Did you lose another fight? Did you try to walk away?
Did they try to tell you what to think and what to feel and what to say?
Did you walk alone tonight? Did you get lost along the way?
Did you cry yourself to sleep, did you wish you could just fade away?

You should phone in sick and sneak in to a movie with me
We'll share some laughs and a flask full of wine
Later we can cruise the scene like hipsters on scooters and then
Head to the lake and catch a jar of fireflies

Did you catch my drift tonight? Did you see it in your dreams?
Peace in the blink of an eye and true love in a memory
The trees are whizzing by, a warm breeze on my feet
With the crickets' lullaby it was the last time I felt safe and free.
