I had a listen:


Mothgirl

Well I tried hard not to get caught in the lamp light
But it’s easy simply to head for the heat
And my mind is miles away at the seaside
And meanwhile my body just folows my feet

And I’m flying higher yeah yeah
Doing what I do
Flying higher yeah yeah
Going where I choose

So I thank you for lending yourself to my senses
My defences are finding the grip has come loose

And I fly up high up and over the treetops
Fear drops and my sky’s wherever I choose

And I’m flying higher yeah yeah
Doing what I do
Flying high yeah yeah
Going where I choose

So take this time
See what you do to yourself and my name (?)
Flying blind
I find my wings
I intertwine
Just for the blink of an eye


And I’m flying higher yeah yeah
Doing what I do
Flying higher yeah yeah
Going where I choose


---------------------------------------------------------------------

Bad Day

Tell me how I can find
Something to compare
To this kiss so fine
I've been looking everywhere

What used to be wrong is right
Honey can you see
How your lightening
Coming down striking me
How your lightening
Coming down striking me

You're a good moon
You're good food
When it's a bad day, anyway
You're a la-li-lighthouse
On a dark night
Too tired to fight it anyway

Familiar to your sound
Like honey when you breathe
In and out
Oh you know you pacify me
And if I go tomorrow
I wanna thank you for today
For being together
Even on a bad day

Cos you're a good moon
You're good food
When it's a bad day, anyway
And you're a la-la-la-lighthouse
On a dark night
I'm too tired to fight it anyway

I had a go at the lyrics also:

Well I try hard not to get caught in the lamplight,
But it's easy simply to head for the heat.
And my mind is miles away at the seaside,
And meanwhile my body just follows my feet.

I'm flying higher yeah, doing what I do.
I'm flying higher yeah yeah, going where I choose.

So I thank you for lending yourself to my senses,
My defenses are finding the grippers come loose,
And I fly up high up and over the treetops,
My fear drops and my skies are ever arching.

I'm flying higher yeah doing what I do,
I'm flying higher yeah yeah, going where I choose.

Take this time to see what you do to yourself in my name,
Flyin' blind I'll find my wings are intertwined just for the blink of an eye,
Eye, Eye, Eye,
Eye, Eye, Eye,
Eye, Eye, Eye.

I'm flying higher yeah doing what I do,
I'm flying higher yeah yeah going where I choose
Oh yes I'm flying higher yeah doing what I do,
I'm flying higher yeah, going where I choose.



Tell me how I can find,
Something to compare,
To this kiss of mine;
I've been looking everywhere.

What used to be wrong is right,
Honey can't you see?
How your lightning comin' down striking me!
How your lightning comin' down striking me!

Oh you're in a good mood, a good fool
But it's a bad day anyway
And you're a lighthouse, on a dark night
Too tired to fight it anyway

Familiar to yourself,
Like honey when you breathe,
In and out, oh you know you pacify me
And if I go tomorrow,
I want to thank you for today,
For being so good, even on a bad day

Oh you're in a good mood, a good fool
But it's a bad day anyway
And you're a lighthouse, on a dark night
I'm too tired to fight it anyway

Oh yes you're in a good mood, a good fool
But it's a bad day anyway
And you're a lighthouse, on a dark night
I'm too tired to fight it anyway

Yep, that's true. But the two of you already helped me a lot, or are you just alluding to something? :)
