The Moon & Memory

The Moon & The Memory
Music: Lyndon Heart
Lyrics: Salome Strangelove

The kids below my window are rehearsing how to swear
Like they invented it
I can hear the girls all askin’ if the boys wanna truth or dare
Like they just thought of it
But I can’t hear a damn thing in the other room
Where you should be
Where you won’t be
And I know I should just get up and have a look; end all this suspense,
But I simply can’t imagine what the world will look like colored by your absence

My phone’s been dancing on the dresser all morning-afternoon
Like it’s been trying to escape
Every buzz claims there’s another text, every voicemail plays a tune
Like there’s something anyone could say
And I could scroll down every name and hope
For yours to be
Where it won’t be
To stay here without you, girl, demands a silence I cannot sustain
So I pack a bag and drive away beneath the language of the rain

I drive on
To the Moon and the memory of you and me
Chasin’ down the wind
Where it tangled us within the dream lovers all begin
Promising, pretending
That time wasn’t wasted while I held you
All that infinity ran through our hands
Like water
While the Moon lost its memory

Outside my empty room there’s a broken bottle on the curb
It shines like anger
I make an ice run hang out do not disturb
And down my liquor
Eventually I’ll find a place to go
And call it home
But it won’t be home
Oh, I’ve chased it all around my head until it hurts to contemplate tomorrow
I could pull up by the bootstraps, but I guess I’m more committed to the sorrow

It takes me back
To the Moon and the memory of you and me
Chasin’ down the wind
Where it tangled us within the dream lovers all begin
Promising, pretending
That time wasn’t wasted while I held you
All that infinity ran through our hands
Like water
While the Moon lost its memory

Before I lost you
And the moon lost its memory
