lyrics

the night was like
a big black jewel
and I was a
thieving fool

and the street looked like the sky
on the night you said goodbye

the tide washed
over the sand
and the cranes
went lookin' for land

and the clouds laid down and cried
on the night you said goodbye

there was a boat
all full of the stars
like the headlights
of passing cars

and the moon looked me right in the eye
on the night you said goodbye

your memory like a fanned flame grows
in the soft dark, the smell of clothes
like the powder from a matchlock gun
it's gone with the rising sun

a passing plane
caught a moonbeam
as its passengers
awoke from their dreams

and something inside of me died
on the night you said goodbye

and something inside of me died
on the night you said goodbye
