You get out of my head now, honey
You get out of my head
You and your colors
You and your painting
I can forget you

You stay out of my way now, honey
You just stay out of my way
This is my Grace Coast
This is my homeland
You're always coming and going

But I always comeback
I am drawn to this place
As I'm drawn to you
As I'm drawn to you
As I'm drawn to you
A moth to the light
To the light

Let's talk about your freedom
Talk about my lack of it
Let's talk about my feelings
Talk about your lack of them
You preach such beauty
You miss the point

You go down with your friends every day
You go down to the sea
Light on the water
For the light on the water
I work the whole day
You chase the light

Look out there!
Can't you see what I see?

Go paint the ladies on the beach
They mean nothing to me
They are part of the scenery
I don't know why you go on this way
With crinolines and parasols
To shade their beautiful faces
From the sunlight that you love so well
I love you more, I love you more
Isn't that funny?
No, I don't think that's funny
I think it's funny

So, you get out of my head now, won't you
Just stay out of my head
Move down the coastline
Move to a new town
And don't say you love me
What does that mean?
I don't want to keep you bottled in my glass
You are a free moth
Go chase the light
