lyrics

How can they do it?
Doesn't the sun miss me?
Don't the birds miss me?
The constellations when they are hovering way over in the lower part of the sky
Don't they miss the big full arc they make over me
Why leave when I can see?

You should tell your fellow werewolf that he is not the sun and you are not the earth

But who witnesses it elsewhere?
I'll be they don't care like I care
Oh can't they tell the difference in their audience?
If when the blue bird returns I thaw if when the sun returns I cry
If when the stars change my fingertips open up and out shoot the fireworks of my heart
Why do they leave?
Is my love not enough?
My gratitude expressed in my performance in my response in my endurance what I am able to feel
Need you leave and take it all from me?

You should tell your fellow werewolf that he is not the sun and you are not the earth

But you don't suffer like I do do you?
You seem so constant so purposeful so measured so stately so controlled so resigned
And yet you pour out your warmth onto the entire surface of my being and I am warmed
And awakened
I let out my love I let oxygen escape I let it go free I let it rush to you
And skate all over my skin
Don't we dance? Is this not a dance? I caress my foundation
I caress my everything before you beneath you
In the feel of you are you here do you need my movement too?
Don't you live to see me writhe and come to life?

You should tell your fellow werewolf that he is not the sun and you are not the earth

But what if I didn't?
You come and go like a pendulum
Dependably
Removed

It is not you!
It cannot be you!
You are an uneven form if you are at all
So where does your light go when the sun goes where does your warmth go?
I turn away
Dependably
Reflexively
Nearly in my sleep I roll over into the dark

No, it is not me!
My form is uneven if it is at all!

Our forms are
Roving roving roving roving

I want to tell my fellow werewolf that he is not the sun and I am not the earth!

So it is not you who leaves, it's not me who turns away
We are uneven forms!
Restless forms!
Responsive forms!
Reactive forms!
Contactive forms!

Let's find each other!
