lyrics

There’s a full moon tonight
You can find it outside or online
In this digital twilight
Where everything’s quiet, everything’s mine

I see this is your first time
So I’ll take it easy on you tonight
But this is my worst light
A bird in your headlights

I try to be patient every time
But my imagination’s like a runaway freight train

What an urban creature
But part of it hungers for the sea
I’m the injured bird, oh
I’ll be your girl with the broken wing

And we’ll close our eyes
Attempting to follow the sunken lines
In the quiet of the ocean
Beneath the storms and the raging tides

I try to be patient like the sea
But this digital silence is slowly destroying me

Anastasia, Anastasia
You’re wasted on the real world my dear

Now repeat a thousand times
Not ‘us’, but ‘you and I’
In this digital twilight
Where everything’s quiet, everything’s mine

I know I said that I’d be brave
But you can’t see me shaking when I’m off stage
Like the injured bird, oh

I try to be patient etc…
