"Wandering Star" as written by and Channy Leaneagh Ryan Olson....
Ooh ooh

When the day is done
And I lay me down
I sit alone in my lonely bed
And I think about
The day we had
And it makes me sad 'cause you're gone

When the day is done
And I lay me down
This sheet's so cold
And your space is dark
And I hear you whispering something sweet
And it doesn't move me and it knows me

When the day is done
And I lay me down
I sit alone in my lonely bed
And I think about
The day we had
And it makes me sad 'cause you're gone

After all I'm married to the wandering star
I kissed his moon
It was full and I fell in love with thee
But now, the world turns around me
Turns around me
Turns around me
Turns around me

When the day is done
And I lay me down
This sheet's so cold
And your place is dark
And I hear you whispering something sweet
And it doesn't move and it knows me

After all, I'm married to the wandering star
I kissed his moon
It was full and I fell in love with thee
But now the world turns around me

After all, I'm married to the wandering star
I kissed his moon
It was full and I fell in love with thee
But now the world turns around me

When the day is done
And I lay me down
This sheet's so cold
And your space is dark
And I hear you whispering something sweet
And it doesn't move and it knows me

Ooh

    General Commentunbelievable song, unbelievable live.

    it's very open for interpretation... it could be about missing someone, it could be that she can't fall in love with anyone or gets bored (follows a wandering star), or about her first love that has moved on

    heard about it thru bon iver in rolling stone i believe

    General CommentThe lyrics in the album!! Amazing... I think it must be viewed as a whole story with chapters... The Woman who is leaving the husband she once loved ... has fallen for another (her 'teacher' although I think she refers to one teaching her about passion / love / sex, rather than a traditional school teacher) in an affair that hints with little subtlety, of S&M (Violent Games & Leading to Death) ... The child she won't leave behind to be with him (in Dark Star), the hints of perhaps this being her mother's way (seeing her mother letting her hair down through the (bedroom) window and not being allowed in there, perhaps because of her mother's lover, and perhaps that is why she is now putting her child first in her decision not to leave (Form & Dark Star)... and so she is still left behind, always chasing after love and happiness and while having a taste, never able to capture and sustain that bliss (Wandering Star)... Simply Beautiful & Tragic.

    General CommentChanny was Married to Crescent Moon from Kill The Vultures and Mixed Blood Majority. Pretty sure this song is about her relationship with him.
