You danced with the moon on your shoulder
Dropped coins to start up the marching band
A baby was in your hands and bandaged men all around

You waltzed with the Unknown Soldier
For sharks die if they stay too still too long
So you were praying for a song to make a current so strong

And this is what you deserve
And I won’t stand in your way
Anna Karina, I was wrong
The stars above can’t hide from you, they’re gone

Spinning through the fields
Like a sycamore seed
In the dying breeze
You did a pirouette, an arabesque and curtsy
It hurt me, baby

Floated flowers to the mouth of the river
Laid wreaths on the dead on the battleground
When your ears heard that seasick sound
Your shattered legs came around

And this is what you deserve
And I won’t stand in your way
Anna Karina, I was wrong
The stars above can’t hide from you, they’re gone
