Sitting solitaire on Tolstoy afternoons
Watching as that two face moon tries tricking me
Through rustling leaves, into shepherd sleep

With all her science and her romance and mythologies
She's trying to cast her spell on me
My soul released to velvet glow

Flow through lunar bliss, to stranger's kiss
On the holy wings of Artemis

Alone beneath the gingham swirl of gorgeous nights
I lie and wonder, oh, how many lonely nights
Can I afford myself
Looking into the eyes of no one else
Chastised by the church bell chimes and
Beat down by the hands of time

Wake up on the floor and find
I can't recall her name or my state of mind
Untold truths and misspent trust
I don't miss you, I miss the both us

Tripping down the jigsaw jazz of city streets
Morning sunlight through the trees
Wraps the day in cellophane
Swirling all around me in off key harmony
Voices carry on the breeze
On my odyssey for amnesty

On my lonely search, for Artemis
Sail o way, o sail o way o
