Blood Moon Singer

lyrics

I was grinding my teeth in the back of the van
with my styrofoam cup falling out of my hands.
I was dreaming of streetlights through the windows of your room
and then I awoke in Ohio at three in the afternoon.

There's some laughing Katherine down at the end of the bar
with some funny Daniel down at the end of her arm.
I was drinking ginger ale and I was chewing on ice,
playing that piano, way down in Alabama on a Tuesday night.

I was a blood moon singer.
I was a broken bell ringer.
I was the poor message bringer if you need a little writing for the wall.
And it ain't a crime, and it ain't against the law,
but no matter who you are, loving from afar ain't no love at all.

As the first light was falling at the edge of the floor
and my blood was unthawing like the mornings before.
Now the lines on my face don't read any way you want,
just like a ghost, searching high and low for another house to haunt.

I need a bright-eyed redeemer,
singing "Beautiful Dreamer"
sleeping on a sunbeam, waking me up at my master's call
and it ain't a crime and it ain't against the law,
but no matter who you are, loving from afar ain't no love at all.

No matter who you are, loving from afar ain't no love at all.
