Moondancer

Lui Collins

Moondancer, moondancer, I'll be a moondancer
Glide as I waltz on my clumsy old feet
Once I was conscious of every false step
Now I dance in the moonlight with no one to see.

I have a friend who was awkward and shy
He was not like the others but he didn't know why
When all that he wanted was just to be cool
He tried playing the hero, he'd just play the fool.

Moondancer, moondancer, now he's a moondancer
Glides as he waltzes on clumsy old feet
Once he was conscious of every false step
Now he dances in moonlight with no one to see.

My little girl is so lovely and free
As ease with her body, she's nothing like me
No one has taught her to be someone else
At this tender age she takes joy in herself.

Moondancer, moondancer, she is a moondancer
Glides as she waltzes on graceful young feet
She's never been conscious nor watched every step
So she dances in moonlight with no one to see.

My little son is the joy of my days
A gift come unto me to lighten my way
Though he cannot walk, he has led me to You
For though body is matter, the spirit is Truth.

Moondancer, moondancer, he is a moondancer
Glides as he waltzes on straight and strong feet
Knowing no limits, his body's set free
To dance in the moonlight with no one to see.

Moondancer, moondancer, let us be moondancers
Glide as we waltz on our graceful old feet
Accepting no limits, we set ourselves free
To dance in the moonlight with no one to see
Let us dance in the moonlight with no one to see.
