lyrics

Let me be your moon and I will follow you around
In the morning when you wake I’ll disappear without a sound
I promise not to compliment your sister all the time
Just please don’t leave me alone with people like this

And look at you now baby
Dressed up in diamonds and silk
I wish I could say I was happy to see you so happy
And look at you now baby
Oh my stars
Oh my stars

I remember when we met, the pleasure was yours, you know it was
And I had to wonder if I would survive your affections
But it’s never too late to fall on your face and make a fool of yourself
I did it and said that I did it for you

And look at you now baby
Dressed up in diamonds and silk
I wish I could say I was sorry to see you so sad
And look at you now baby
Oh my stars
Oh my stars

I just want you to love me like you did when we were kids
You say you don’t care about money girl but I know you always did
I promise not to compliment your sister anymore
Just please don’t leave me alone, no not again

And look at you now baby
Oh my stars
Oh my stars
Oh my stars…

Since then, Friendly Strangers have developed a repertoire of songs regarding cosmopolitan angst, southern funerals, general bitterness and occasionally love (but usually not). ... more
