Lyrics

Bitter moon in the cold November sky
You impugn everything I ever tried
I am never good enough for you
I do my best, but soon I know
I'm gonna lose you

You have a timezone all your very own
Your gravity makes all the oceans foam
Conquer the earth like Caesar of Rome
It's veni, vidi, vici every night

And there's a graveyard lying in your dust
With all the bones of those who fell in love
There's still so much we haven't discussed
So far away you never hear me

Bitter moon in the cold November sky
You impugn everything I ever tried
I am never good enough for you
I do my best, but soon I know
I'm gonna lose you

Your orbit keeps on drifting into space
Four centimeters further every day
I keep on dancing, hoping you'll stay
The spider's egg and water lily pad

Up in the sky, you're looking down on me
Sometimes I wonder what it is you see
I can't produce my own source of light
Shadows are darker on you than me

Bitter moon in the cold November sky
You impugn everything I ever tried
I am never good enough for you
I do my best, but soon I know
I'm gonna lose you
