Lavender and cloves
On my paper boat
Mornings come and go
Want to touch your face
Don’t remember how

From your room behind the sea
Do you sit and wait for me?
Does the ocean sing my name?
How much longer will you stay?

From your room behind the sea
Do you sit and wait for me?
Monsters glide beneath the blue
As I lie here in my boat

Moonflower, Moonflower
Grant me one wish
That we’ll meet again someday

Bobbin lace and snow
On my brittle boat
Painted winds, they blow
Want to warm your hands

From your room behind the sea
Do you sit and wait for me?
Oh these letters that you write
The smell of paper makes me cry

From your room behind the sea
Do you hold the orphan stars?

Moonflower, Moonflower
Grant me one wish
That we’ll meet again someday
