lyrics

You keep fighting off sleep, telling me you’re not ready for me to leave. There’s genuine curiosity, behind your eyelids, getting heavy, when you ask me what you’re missing, when you sleep.

I could try to tell you nothing, just trucks on the highway running, you can listen for the whistling of the train behind the house, or the owl asking who it is, as it’s swooping in, from the evergreens, while you sleep.

But I know you’re not convinced by anything that seems too simple to be true. You said, If there’s wonders in the daylight, then I wonder what happens under the moon. How many stars fall, and where do they land, and how many waves crash over the sand. If there’s wonders in the daylight, I wonder what happens under the moon. If there’s wonders after dark, I want to see them too.

And I’d be lying if I told you there was nothing.

But I know you’re not convinced by anything that seems too simple to be true. You said, If there’s wonders in the daylight, then I wonder what happens under the moon. How many stars fall, and where do they land, and how many waves crash over the sand. If there’s wonders in the daylight, I wonder what happens under the moon. If there’s wonders after dark, I want to see them too.
