Dance By Starlight

Lyrics and Music ©2005 by Bill Roper


Gretchen had to work (her bank got bought and they were converting to the new system), so she sent me to England for Dixseption without her. Of course, I had to bring something back for her, and the wonderful thing about a new song is that it doesn't need to be declared at Customs.

	F#m/D          Em/D
	I look at you, you look at me.
	Dmaj7              Em/D
	Never imagined how happy we'd be.
	F#m/D                Em/D
	Standing together as lovers and friends,
	Dmaj7          G              A     D
	Reach for your hand, starting over again.

D                  G               A            D
Never thought that I could feel so happy and so free
D            G                    E7                A
As the way I find I feel with you standing close to me.
G                  A                    D                Bm
Never thought we'd find the strength or will to take the chance,
      G                             A
And I hear the music rising for the dance.

	(Chorus)
	   Dmaj7    Am7
	So dance by starlight.
	Dmaj7        Am7
	Dancing in a dream tonight.
	Dmaj7          Am7
	Dancing as our hearts take flight,
	G            Em7         A
	Knowing everything's all right.

Never knew that I could feel the way you make me feel.
Never knew that anything so wonderful was real.
Looking deep into your eyes, I find that I'm entranced
As we're moving to the rhythm of the dance.

(Chorus)

I thought it was impossible  I guess that I was wrong,
Dancing in the dark with you and listening to our song.
So here's a happy ending and a start to our romance
As we gently sway together in our dance.

(Chorus twice)

	I look at you, you look at me.
	Never imagined how happy we'd be.
	Standing together as lovers and friends,
	Reach for your hand, starting over again.

	D              G              A     D
	Reach for your hand, starting over again.
