lyrics

my sister ran away from home
when she was only 3
took a boat down by the river
and sailed to the sea

I used to dream for a longtime back then
had a secret library
and I'd go down and read all your life
and the things that you'd be

but beneath this apartment in Paris
I know there's a secret staircase
where I go to dream

beneath this apartment in Paris
I know there's a secret staircase
that runs to the sea
for me

and now she lives in another place now
and I'm living somewhere, too
she sculpts for the police prefecture
people that drowned in the moon

and I look out across the water
from the top of a Ferris wheel
"moved away so don't send postcards
I don't care what you feel"

and when you disappear
won't you reappear for me
maybe I'll be on a desert island
far across the sea
and you'll sail in one night
when the moon is shining high
and all those cats and waterchildren
will come running to your side

so won't you pirate lights
come out tonight
and shine your lights
on me

we stayed up late
'cause we couldn't wait
just to see what the night would say

we drank Champagne
with my brother then
as we sat and sang
the songs I'd play

so won't you pirate lights
come out tonight
and shine your lights on me
and Moira Penelope
Moira Penelope

in the heart of the Moon and the Sea
