My moon, my man
So changeable and
Such a loveable lamb to me

My care, my coat
Leave on a high note
There's nowhere to go but on

Heart on my sleeve
Not where it should be
The song's out of key again

My moon's white face
What day...

    I assumed "my moon" referred to the 28 day cycle, and perhaps how her interactions with her man wax & wane with where she is in her cycle (interest, availability, something like that). Not sure about "my care, my coat" on a literal interpretation level, but seems metaphoric for attention and protection of some sort related to the moon phases.

    I think it's actually about someone coming to the realization she is in some form of an abusive relationship, and how long it takes her to realize it.

    The chorus appears to be advice to anyone trying to talk sense into her. Sort of saying "tell me what I need to hear, but don't push or try to rescue me."

    It's about thinking a guy is amazing, but slowly realizing he's not cut out to how he seems to be
    moon = time passing, each night, waiting for him

    I highly doubt this song is about anal sex (which everyone seems to think),
    it's about her being in a relationship with a moody guy, so she takes her stuff and leaves. She compares him to the moon because the moon has phases like he has moods. And she "checks the calender" to see what mood he is going to be in, I'm not too sure about the next part it sounds almost like abuse when she says "take it easy on me and it's the dirtest clean I know.
