I Danced My Life Away

I saw the faces of the moon...
the yawns of the stars at night.
The moon is wilder every minute
as I danced my life away.

I saw the last rays of the fallen sun
dying into a dance...dying as they fade.
The rain dropped slowly and dreams gather
as I danced my life away.

I saw as days turn to empty nights...
the beauty of the water as it sparkles.
But i never saw you-
so I danced my life away.
