Waltz for a Friday Evening
Friday evening it's still in the air
There's a soft white moon
Glowing through the trees.
At the end of the footpath
I still carry through
My thoughts quietly thought through the day.
Always thinking that the world should
be moving much slower as music
moves so our lives should too.
But the world still spins quickly
And I'm still behind
Those trees watching the moon
Glowing with warmth and with beautiful light
Through the trees
Watching the moon
Tenderly thinking of you.
