She said you were looking,
In indiscrete glances,
That quickened my heartbeat,
Made me conscious…of everything.
As I shook your hand,
I held my breath also.
How was I to know,
That your eyes were so pretty up close?

And, who calls it moonlight?
And, who caught me running?
So fast, so fearless,
I thought I had everything.
Just for a moment,
I let you slip quickly,
Like sand through my fingers,
On a sea shore that I’ll never see.

We lifted our glasses,
And toasted to nothing.
Just to feel the force of,
Your bottle on mine.
And through smoke and through laughter,
And scraps of conversation,
I pieced you together,
Forgot hesitations.

And, who calls it moonlight?
And, who caught me running?
So fast, so fearless,
I thought I had everything.
Just for a moment,
I let you slip quickly,
Like sand through my fingers,
On a sea shore that I’ll never see.

And, as we drove away,
Falling into the darkness,
That takes all the memories,
And leaves all the names,
Well, I said I’d remember,
And I promised forever,
I said I’d write you a song,
If you would only believe me…

And, who calls it moonlight?
And, who caught me running?
So fast, and so fearless,
I thought I had everything.
Just for a moment,
And I let you slip quickly,
Like sand through my fingers,
On a sea shore that I’ll never see…I’ll never see…
