Moonshine on the Water

Deep in the glade in the twilight
Stars peeking through the canopy
There, by the stream, we'd sit and dream
At least, that's how it seemed to me

Why in the glade in the twilight
You'd profess your love, love to me
Near the waters, I dreamed of daughters
and sons, who'd never come to be

It was nothing more than moonshine on the water
It was little more than mountains o'er the sea
I'd seen a mirage
My heart did not wish to dislodge
But now, I plainly see
That you, you don't love me

Now in the blaze of the daylight
My eyes see you perfectly
The sayer of sooth told me the truth
Mars and Venus opposèd be
