Seals & Crofts – Dance By The Light Of The Moon lyrics

(lyrics by James Seals; music by James Seals and Dash Crofts, 1974)
From the albums unborn child (1974) and hard goods (1974).

Remember the old days when I met you. I never thought I would get you.
Remember the good times we shared together, and now they're just a song.
Remember the first time that I saw you. Remember the first time that I taught you.
Remember the old friends we knew together, and how they've all gone on.

Well we danced by the light of the moon. The band kept on playing that tune.
You asked me to carry you home, we were alone.
And then I saw moonlight dance in your hair. Now I'll never, never, never see it again.
No I'll never, ever, ever have it again. It's gone, just like the song that lives on.

Doesn't it seem like the right time. I wanna go way back through my lifetime.
Gotta go way back and re-live those days, when everything was mine.
Doesn't it seem like a long ways. Back through the fog and the byways.
Doesn't it seem strange it took so long, but I saw it all today.

The moon through the trees did go down. The snowflakes had covered the ground.
Morning left moonlight behind; day was unkind.
But then I saw lovelight dance in your hair. Ah I'll never, never, never see it again.
I'll never, ever, ever have it again. Oh no, just the snow and I know.
