The night before the moon died
You realized
The flowers that you picked
And kept locked away

Were never to be seen
By naked lovers' eyes
The night before the moon died
You realized

You had a chance to make it right
But you never did
Take your car right out of gear
Send it over the sea

Touch your fingers to the water
Put your hands to your face
The night before the moon died
You realized

You had your chance
To make it right
You had your chance
To change your mind

You had your chance
To save your life
But you never did

    General CommentThis song is really beautiful, and very sad. Presumably, it's about a breakup, a painful one, possibly due to a suicide ("you had a chance to save your life, but you never did"). A great and sad tune, highly underrated. Check it out.
