lyrics

One week in 2013, we had a Luna Moth colony.
Pretty luck year, pretty for me;
Luna Moth colony.

They don't have mouths to tell each other how they feel
or eat that sweet nectar from a field, or eat at all

And I'm glad that we're not Luna Moths,
I'm glad that we say what we feel.
I liked the time that they were here,
But seven days is pretty unfair,
Seven days is pretty unfair.

I think of the moss, here a hundred years,
I think of the trees, here a hundred more,
I think of the seagrass, here before the trees,
And then you and me.

I'm glad that you are not a tree,
I'm glad we're not the oldest things.
I liked the time they were here,
But seven days is pretty unfair,
Seven days is pretty unfair.

And I walked to my workshop, they were right there.
The window, our washroom, they were right there.
Walk off with me after, we were right there.
Our parents watch over, we were right there.

I'm glad that we're not Luna Moths,
I'm glad that we say what we feel.
I liked the time that they were here,
But seven days is pretty unfair,
Seven days is pretty unfair.
