Fred Small – The Dancing Light lyrics

I remember her when she was shining bright
Deep in her dark eyes there shone a dancing light
She always used to say that she was not the marrying kind
Until she met the man who changed her mind
He was beautiful and Lord he was strong
Knew where he was going, rising like the sun
And he believed in her and listened to her thoughts
And long into the evening they would talk.
Seemed like we just blinked our eys and she slipped away
This woman full of fire and wonder only yesterday
There ain't no doubt she's happy, ain't nothing really wrong
But the dancing light inside her eyes is gone.
He got the job he wanted, she left hers behind
She said she had no future there, she didn't mind.
In another city she began a brand new life
Loving the man and learning to be a wife
We still get a letter from time to time
She writes about the baby, not what's on her mind.
I guess she's got her reasons, it ain't for me to say
But it makes me sad to lose a friend that way.
... But the dancing light inside her eyes--
It's hard sometimes just to survive--
Oh the dancing light is gone.
