Neil Young – Harvest Moon lyrics

Come a little bit closer
Hear what I have to say
Just like children sleepin'
We could dream this night away.

But there's a full moon risin'
Let's go dancin' in the light
We know where the music's playin'
Let's go out and feel the night.

Because I'm still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I'm still in love with you
On this harvest moon.

When we were strangers
I watched you from afar
When we were lovers
I loved you with all my heart.

But now it's gettin' late
And the moon is climbin' high
I want to celebrate
See it shinin' in your eye.

Because I'm still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I'm still in love with you
On this harvest moon.

    Heard it tonight from soundtrack of "Eat Love Pray". Brought a smile to my face thinking of how you loved me then and how I love you still 5 years later. Felt like Neil Young sang it to us alone in concert. With nothing to lose I go on loving you, unrequited though it is. I can still love you in silence and in secrecy. If you do know how I feel there's nothing you can do about it. You'd never guess but she left me so I'm the man not the female as some might suspect and you may think I'm too sappy, too sensitive, etc. So what, doesn't matter, love is the answer.

    It is about falling in love. The moon grows until it is full (a harvest moon). Which is your love growing and maturing over the years. Then you are older and you want to be sure that even though you are still in love and it has matured you are still "dancing," enjoying each other and life. It is keeping the spark (thinking about it and working on it) over the years. Beautiful. N

    Wow miss the man that sung this to me and played guitar. Where did you go? You where the best. Hope life is good. Wish you were back, but guess it's not meant to be. Miss you and love you. Maybe one day we will have another Harvest Moon, miss you babe.
