From the album "The Moon and the Sea"

lyrics

I saw an old friend of mine on the street the other day
I thought that he'd already died or maybe just faded away
he'd taken over a local newspaper when he was 17
now he lives on a Ferris wheel in the middle of the sea

ain't that just the way it always goes
you wake up and he's still wearing her clothes
seems like the only ones who ever lose
are the people who give themselves up to the Moon

my sister ran away from home when she was only three
now she lives on a pirate ship and they call her the queen of the Sea
I passed my sister walking down the street the other day
I hadn't seen her in 23 years
we both had nothing to say

well the I spent the winter waiting for a lover in Marseilles
that time those boys tried to take all your things
and I gave them all away
and if I said I loved you then, that dreams would never end
at least they'll always remember each night
that I was a fisherman's friend

seems somehow that things always fall through
but you've never felt as good as when he's inside of you
seems like the only ones who ever lose
are the people who give themselves up to the Moon

there's a Japanese man living under the Sea
looking for his dead wife in a red submarine
the shape of your reflection is all I can see
for you are the Moon, and I am the Sea

well once I fell in love with a girl
with a name like the shape of the Moon
and we ran on through the moonlight
think it was February or June
she wore a moonstone necklace,
each night we danced out into the streets
but now she loves another
and I call myself the Sea

somedays I wish we'd just grow wings and fly
but she's going away next weekend
if you wanna come by
if we were in a movie, they'd call it "Hearts in the Fire"
instead of a couple of married guys in Eastern Ohio

there's a Japanese man living under the Sea
looking for his dead wife in a red submarine
the shape of your reflection is all I can see
for you are the Moon and I am the Sea

and sat last night in an orange Chinese
with two stoned girls drunk in love
and I know that you're friends with the one on the left
and you're still all that I'm thinking of
you know those waterdogs, falling down waterfalls
you know they just wanna fall
I can hear 'em call
can you hear 'em call?

there's a Japanese man living under the Sea
looking for his dead wife in a red submarine
the shape of your reflection is all I can see
for you are the Moon, and I am the Sea
