So many years ago, I can’t remember now
Someone was waiting for me
I had the answers to all of my questions
Love was so easy to see, I didn’t know

When I was younger, I should have known better
I thought nothing was new
Through all the spaces, and all of the changes
What I lost sight of was you
I didn’t know, I didn’t know

I could see you in singing skies and dancing waters
Laughing children growing old
And in the heart and in the spirit
And in the truth when it is told

My life became shady, and I grew afraid
And I needed to find my way home
I just couldn’t see you, I thought that I’d lost you
I never felt so much alone, are you still with me

Somehow in reason, I lost sight of seasons
I’m growin’ out, growin’ in
Sometimes in evenings, when daylight was needed
I thought I’d never see you again
Are you still with me, are you still with me

I’m with you in singing skies and dancing waters
Laughing children growing old
And in the heart and in the spirit
And in the truth when it is told

If my faith should falter
And I should forsake you, and find myself turning away
Will you still be there, will you still be there

I’ll be there in singing skies and dancing waters
Laughing children growing old
And in the heart and in the spirit
And in the truth when it is told

Words and music by John Denver

    Very spiritual... To me. Occasionally lose sight of what is real and meaningful in life. But god is in all things - singing skies, dancing waters...

    A young man chooses his first opportunity to marry, maybe blinded by love, without thinking about the other girl who he had a connection with. Quite possibly the one who was really his soul mate. Now years later, he questions his original decision. However, no matter what, he sees her all around him in"singing skies and dancing waters".
