The Dancing Light Songtext
I remember her when she was shining bright Deep in her dark eyes there shone a dancing light She always used to say that she was not the marrying kind Until she met the man who changed her mind He was beautiful and Lord he was strong Knew where he was going, rising like the sun And he believed in her and listened to her thoughts And long into the evening they would talk. CHORUS: Seemed like we just blinked our eys and she slipped away This woman full of fire and wonder only yesterday There ain't no doubt she's happy, ain't nothing really wrong But the dancing light inside her eyes is gone. He got the job he wanted, she left hers behind She said she had no future there, she didn't mind. In another city she began a brand new life Loving the man and learning to be a wife We still get a letter from time to time She writes about the baby, not what's on her mind. I guess she's got her reasons, it ain't for me to say But it makes me sad to lose a friend that way. CHORUS But the dancing light inside her eyes-- It's hard sometimes just to survive-- Oh the dancing light is gone.
