The Magnetic Fields — Save A Secret For The Moon lyrics

I know all the names of your tears
And numbers of these lonely years
I know all the someones somedays
Don't believe them anyway

When you love someone
You can't always tell the sun
It will be twilight soon
Save a secret moon
In a darkened room
Write it on a black balloon
Then watch it fade from view
Save a secret for the moon

I can show you sadder poetry
Than you ever dreamed there could be
I know all the saddest people
Most of them are dead now

When you love someone
You can't always tell the sun
It will be twilight soon
Save a secret moon
In a darkened room
Write it on a black balloon
Then watch it fade from view
Save a secret for the moon
