Lyrics

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 imagine 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
Oh lover, this is where I want to stay
Maybe it could always be this way

Gentle music, rock away the sadnesses in me
Rock away my lonely yesterdays

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
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
'Til moonlight shows no ripples on the waves

And then the clear reflection will remain
Perhaps the same reflection of that same full moon

Full moon, full moon, full moon...
