I couldn't wait to see you
the smoothness of your smile
the raspiness of your voice
I know it anywhere.
We used to dance underneath silk fabrics
looked out the window to hear nothing but the train
and see nothing but the moon river afloat with her stars;
only they know our secret.
But you let go of my dainty hands
and drifted off without me...
the moon river watches over us
and sees you with her
she wonders where I went.
Her stars watch me dance alone
they see my tears in the late hours
I am never alone when I imagine you...
Am I on your mind?
the moon seems to think you listen for me
but how long must you take to understand that
i loved you.
i think about you every morning
dream about you almost every night
but, its been a while now and i don't think you're coming back.
please baby, caress my shoulders again and bring back
the sound of that train and
the comfort of my bed when our bodies lay close
the moon river will once again enjoy our company.
