Lyrics

I’m through believing in you. I’m through believing in you.
It’s over. We’re through. After the full moon comes the new.

Her other lover lives beneath the basement stairs.
His solitary room is draped in skins and feathers and bones.
He calls her down after the house is wrapped in sleep.
She knows the way even in the dark.

He kisses the corners of her mouth as she shivers and shakes.
He traces the tender curve of her throat down to her belly and thigh.
She cries out in pleasure and in pain as he wounds her.
The healer she sees by day cannot cure her.

I’m through believing in you. I’m through believing in you.
It’s over. We’re through. After the full moon comes the new.

We live in well-lit rooms with blue china plates on the wall.
One night I will follow her down. I will throw the skins back.
I will call him out. I will tell her she must choose.
I will have the pleasure of her answer.

I’m through believing in you. I’m through believing in you.
It’s over. We’re through. After the full moon comes the new.
After the full moon comes the new.

These woods are lovely,
dark and deep.
But I have miles to go
before I sleep.
