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.

    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

    Its about time spent apart, missing the person you love and wanting to be with them once again. "its getting late and the moon is rising high"... Do not wait to long or i might no longer be here for you. I want to you back.

    Miss you m. O. Eternal love c. E.
