when the moonlight turns your shadow into a traitor
turns you over to a world you can't relate to
i'll be there just to lasso you the moonshine
in the back of your mind just like a wind chime
i'll be there when you call my name oh naoko

when the winter turns your bed frame into a frail shell
turns you over to a deep and dark well
i'll be there just to lasso you the moonshine
in the back of your mind just like a wind chime
i'll be there when you call my name oh naoko

if your bones break from the weight of your snow
make a pile of the wreckage by the old lake
from the lake to the river to the ocean where the coastlines go
with your brittle bones, and broken jack
my shells and stones and if my memory goes
it's when i'm lost in your deep woods
this place gives me the shakes
and i'll just tremble in your soil like an earthquake

i'll be there just to lasso you the moonshine
in the back of your mind just like a wind chime
i'll be there when you call my name oh naoko

    General Commenti love this song but the book it draws inspiration from- haruki murakami's "norwegian wood"- is just mediocre. it has such a great reputation but it's really a rather flat book.

    General CommentSo, so beautiful.

    I can't speak to the source material, but I do love the hinting at the passing of time vs. the constancy of the narrator's love.

    My OpinionI just discovered this artist recently. I loved learning that they're from my hometown PHILLY Woop WOOp. And I'm in love with the sweet melody of this song. But I'm a little disappointed in the shallowness of the lyrical content. I don't know, just my thoughts.
