Asking us to Dance

by Hugh Prestwood

This song was a demo from the album “Far Side of the World.”


Lyrics

There’s a full moon up and rising
And there’s a whisper of a breeze
Blowing through the tangled silver
Hanging from the cypress trees
There’s a river made of moonlight
Flowing clear across the lake
And there’s a million stars just waitin’
To fall for any wish we make

Chorus:
Darlin’ tonight I am reminded
How much these two hearts need romance
You know it isn’t all that often
We get this kind of chance
Why don’t we get caught in this moment
Be victims of sweet circumstance
Tonight I feel like all creation
Is asking us to dance

There’ll be time enough tomorrow
To get back to our daily bread
But there’s something ’bout this evening
That’s put this notion in my head
That heaven and the earth are meeting
Tonight upon this very spot
And all the things on earth worth havin’
Are things that we’ve already got

Darlin’ tonight I am reminded
How much these two hearts need romance
You know it isn’t all that often
We get this kind of chance
Why don’t we get caught in this moment
Be victims of sweet circumstance
Tonight I feel like all creation
Is asking us to dance

Why don’t we get caught in this moment
Be victims of sweet circumstance
Tonight I feel like all creation
Is asking us to dance
