Down the hill I looked so fast
Feel the moon, it doesn't last
Troubled boy and lucky girl
Bring me back into your world

Call your name when you are gone
Long is night before the dawn
Hard to catch this side of you
Do you want me to want to?

White moon beam on my back (x4)

Feel inside, it's part of you
An animal that is confused
Hard to catch this side of you
Do you want me to want you?

Give you half but you want more
Bring me back into your world
Feel inside, it's part of you
An animal that is confused

White moon beam on your back (x4)

Shadow in the night
I cannot promise you
No one knows where we will go
They never do

Sing to me goodbyes
The night, a soft disguise
The debt is not due
The debt is not due

Shadow in the night
I cannot promise you
No one knows where we will go
They never do

Sing to me goodbyes
The night, a soft disguise
The debt is not due
The debt is not due

Shifting dreams, not what it seems
It never is
The sun will always rise
It says, it promises

Shifting dreams, not what it seems
It's never true
No one knows where we will go
They never do

    General CommentWhat does she mean when she says
    'Do you want me two on two'
    Beach house songs aren't usually dirty so I'm wondering if it's a metaphor for something...

    General Commentthis song is about, love; young love. desire, rejecton, status, unrequited love.

    its a little fast for beach house, especially compared with their old stuff, but its catchy, progressive, and a unique sound.
