lyrics

The moon was shining on the lake like a firefly trapped in a jar
Such a windless night and the water was perfectly, perfectly still
But it rippled and frothed as I took all I could take

Engine revs and we peel out, leaving dual muddy streaks behind
Jars and jugs of bottled moonlight
In the back of a car and not in my mind

What cosmic sense of irony
What a case of timing gone wrong
When the moment I need you
Is the moment you're gone

Consuming the jugs at a frantic pace, basking in their glow
You held my hand tight as inside swelled the light
Like we both were about to explode

What cosmic sense of irony
What a case of timing gone wrong
When the moment I need you
Is the moment you're gone
