Mariner Moonlighting - Indigo Girls

Mariner Moonlighting
Building for keeps
The art of the theater
And joinery

Something of wood and iron
Steady and strong
The joining of hearts
Is a trick far beyond me

Cupids of heaven
Are painted to mock him
'Cuz baby won't go (baby won't go)
Go for that show

I read your name in charcoal
A century ago
I stood in the rafters
The world moved below

All for the reverie
Of rigging and rope
Untangle the tempest of love
Is another man's calling

The cupids of heaven
Are painted to mock him
'Cuz baby won't go (baby won't go)
Go for that show

Oh, to be free
From the swell of the moon
To stand in one place
While she moves to you

The cupids of heaven
Are painted to mock him
'Cuz baby won't go (baby won't go)
Go for that show
