KATE & ANNA MCGARRIGLE
"The Bike Song"

All those lovely nights
I flirted with the stars
Was it all for nought
For nothing was gained

Brightest heavenly body
After Father Sun
That great big Moon
Is my ball and chain

So what if the sky's on fire
If another damned day's gone by
What is it that I had to be
To make you fall in love with me
To make you fall in love with me

In matters of the heart
I radio the truth
Depending on the stars
To shine and comply

But where are you my mother
Why won't you turn full-face
Shine down upon your daughter
Now that she's crying

So what if the sky's on fire
If another damned day's gone by
What is it that I had to be
To make you fall in love with me
To make you fall in love with me

So what if the sky's on fire
If another damned day's gone by
What is it that I had to be
To make you fall in love with me
To make you fall in love with me
