lyrics

I dreamed the moon was hanging by a thread
I had sought you out to try and make amends
when the heavens blew a devil’s breath
that moon came down and split my head
and I woke up without you again

but I have learned to take the mornings in the chin
a circle of salt around the bed to keep the nightmares in
I chain them to a scratching post
shower, shave, make my toast
and get on with the life that I have left

but I think I’m happy underneath this cloudy sky
there’s a sliver of the sun stuck in the corner of my eye
and no illusions left I can defend

if you don’t believe me
if you don’t believe me
just pretend

and I hang my horseshoes crooked on the wall
careless as the moon, I let the luck fall
‘cause superstition always leads
to idle hands or rosaries
and I won’t pray for luck that I don’t need

‘cause I have spent too much time holding on to hope
tossing pennies in a fountain ‘till I was nearly broke
and between you, me, and the summer rain
I’ve only got myself to blame
for thinking something oh so gold could stay

but hey...

I think I’m happy underneath this cloudy sky
there’s a sliver of the sun stuck in the corner of my eye
and no illusions left I can defend

if you don’t believe me
if you don’t believe me
just pretend
just pretend
just pretend
if you don’t believe me
just pretend
