Subject: RE: Lyr Req: I See the Moon, The Moon Sees Me
Hi there :)

Just to say you are right in assuming theres more, its an old rhyme that my grandmother used to sing to me when I was very little, and its been passed down through the women as a sort of legacy to sing to their daughters. The full rhyme is...

I see the moon, the moon sees me,
Under the shade of the old oak tree.
Please let the light that shines on me,
Shine on the one I love.

Over the mountains, Over the sea,
Where my heart is longing to be.
Please let the light that shines on me,
Shine on the one I love.

Im not entirely sure how old it is and whether or not its copyrighted...I dont even know the name! But I hope this is what you're looking for :]

Jaime
