i wish i was the moon

"chimney falls and lovers blaze
i thought that i was young
now i've freezing hands and bloodless veins
as numb as i've become

i'm so tired
i wish i was the moon tonight

last night i dreamt i had forgotten my name
'cause i had sold my soul but awoke just the same
i'm so lonely
i wish i was the moon tonight

-from "i wish i was the moon" by neko case
