Everybody else has gone,
But you’re still here with me.
All the world is sleeping by and by.
Through the windowpane
The frosted light is streaming in,
Full moon sailing high across the sky.
Tonight is like the night when we first met.
I always knew I never would forget you.
Come and hold me close,
I miss you more than I can say.
I can’t remember how I pass the time,
Wondering if you’ll ever know
How much you mean to me.
I never dreamed there’d be a change of mind.
Lover, this is where I want to stay.
Maybe it could always be this way.
I recall you said to me
A long, long time ago,
“Don’t you lose direction in the crowd – I think you could.”
But when I did you found me
And I didn’t even know.
I hardly even knew you were around and understood.
I was reaching out each moment to be free.
You were all those things I’d never be.
Gentle music, rock away the sadnesses in me.
Rock away my lonely yesterdays,
Like pennies on the ocean
‘Til no trace of them I see,
‘Till moonlight shows no ripples on the waves.
And then the clear reflection will remain.
Perhaps the same reflection
Of that same full moon.
The final three lines of Sandy’s original home recording and demo had slightly different wording:
Our lives would be so different from now on.
Each and every good time would be longer:
Full moon – full moon – full moon – full moon
