lyrics

She is a moth
With a taste for cloth
That covers her brown, paper-thin patterns
She'll take what she knows is hers

See the way she walks
See the way they flock to her ankles like I
Throw myself at her feet
I cannot compete for her

'Cause she is a moth girl and she is in flight
I tried to attract her but I am not the light
I want to keep her for myself in my hands cupped so tight
But I know that I must let her go

She'll fly for a while
With me anchored to her ankles until
I drop like the anvil that I am
And stay safe in this crater I've made

'Cause she is a moth girl and she is in flight
I tried to attract her but I am not the light
I want to keep her for myself in my hands cupped so tight
But I know that I must let her go

She is rising so high
All I can do is look at the ground, look down, and think of how far I'll fall
She is rising too high
The first thing that I should do is the last that I want to
To let go
Let go

She is a moth girl and she is in flight
I tried to attract her but I am not the light
I want to keep her for myself in my hands cupped so tight

But I must let her go
But I know that I must let her go
I must let her go

about

greybarrel Oakland, California

greybarrel is the moniker for Gabriel Fuson, a Mainer now based in the Bay Area. First and foremost a vocalist/choir boy, greybarrel is often described as having a "golden voice" that sounds like James Taylor.
