"Low Red Moon" as written by and Tanya Donelly....
So what, you think this is usual?
Strange moon, strange land, strange man.
Hold the hands of tiny horses,
Hold them, hold them kindly, man.
Low Red Moon,
How can you sleep like a baby,
Sleep like baby?
But you shine so different on another.
You shine different on another.
I look up, and I see
The raising of an old hope,
Brave and tattered.
A shining knight with shining eyes,
He shines around me brightly.
So now, I say this is beautiful.
I think you are strange.
Low red moon, how can you sleep like a baby,
Sleep like a baby?
But you shine so different on another.
You shine different on another.
Strange moon, strange land, strange...
You made me cry when I was young,
And I was young.
Now I got strong arms,
Strong arms for a girl,
And I say,
He belongs to me.
He belongs to me.
He's a human bed of roses.

    General Commenthow can you sleep like a baby.

    hard to pinpoint what it's about EXACTLY but the imagery is so clear - i think it's more visual and feeling than something to put into words.

    General Commenti always thought this song was about having sex outside at night? i thought the lyrics about the "horses" was a reference to condoms ("Trojan" was the number 1 condom brand in america in the late 80s / early 90s)
    like when she sings "So what, you think this is usual?" she's talking about how she has never done this before, just a lot of the lyrics suggest a sexual encounter of some sort ("So now, I say this is beautiful.)
