Frightened by the moon
The silence of it all
It lightens up your room
The nightingale she calls
Here you finally get to see the vulnerability of her character- she is played up throughout the song as leaving him in pain with little concern, but she has her own human worries- which may differ from her self-professed existential existence.
She is afraid to be alone, the Moon symbolizes something to her about existence that scares her.
You’d have to question if the fear of such a thing lends itself to a conversation about life and purpose that she refuses to accept, hence why she grips to existentialist novels.
The silence of the universe, to not answer all questions- may drive people to believing there is no answer.
The moon still has a purpose though, even if it’s just to light her room and keep her guessing.
At this time the Nightingale calls, a bird known as a symbol for love in a song, a bird that sings throughout the night.
