This song is by Alela Diane and appears on the EP Alela and Alina (2009).

Well, I used to wake and run with the moon,
Lived like a rake and a young man.
Covered my lovers with flowers and wounds
And after the devil would frighten.

The Sun, she would come, and beat me back down,
Every cruel day had its nightfall.
Welcomed the stars with wine and guitars,
Full of fire and forgetful.

My body was sharp and the dark air clean,
Outraged my joyful companion.
And whispering women how sweet they did seem,
Kneeling for me to command them.

Time was like water, and I was the sea,
I wouldn't have noticed its passing,
Except for the turning of night into day,
And the turning of day into cursing.

You look at me now, and don't think I don't know
What all your eyes are saying.
Does he want us to believe these ravings and lies
Are just tricks that his brain's been playing?

Lover of women, he can't hardly stand,
He trembles, is bent, and is broken.
I've fallen, it's true, but I say to you,
Hold your tongues until after I've spoken.

I was takin' my pride and my pleasure, I know,
Laughed and said I'd be forgiven.
My laughter turned round, I was blazin' and sinnin'
My friend we're holding a wedding.

I buried my face, but it spoke once again:
Night to the day we are bindin'.
Now the dark air is like fire on my skin,
Even the moonlight is blindin'.

Now the dark air is like fire on my skin,
Even the moonlight is blindin'.
