A little weaker
Gravity’s a little weaker now
So tie her paper wishes to the trees
And tie her lest her feet lose the ground

Said yes to the left and no to the right
Left her bereft and lost to the light and

She goes lightly
And she hopes nightly
And she smiles only for you

You thought you knew her
Didn’t you, you thought you knew her now
You heard her, saw her
But you didn’t know when the coins hit the water

The lengths that she goes to
You point the finger and
She already owes you
The things you bring her and

She hopes nightly
And she treads lightly
And she smiles only for you

She knows it will be better
She knows they won’t forget her
And she knows all the names
Of all the things that can be wished upon

And the coins hit the water
The coins hit the water
The coins hit the water
