Thread Name: Origins: I See the Moon, The Moon Sees Me
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: I See the Moon, The Moon Sees Me
It seems so strange, i didn't know this song was so popular....last night my fiance (lives on the other side of the states, in Oregon *cries*) said he wanted to sing me something he thought would fit us, since we could never see each other, and that his mother used to sing to him when he was small, and I'm sure I'll be doing the same for my children. He sang it like this:

I see the moon, the moon sees me,
the moon sees the one I long to see,
God bless the moon and God bless me
and God bless the one I long to see.

Once I had a heart so true,
but now it's gone from me to you.
Take care of it as I have done
for you have two and I have none.

It seems to me that God above
created you for me to love,
he picked you out from all the rest
because he knew I'd love you best.

I see the moon, the moon sees me,
the moon sees the one I long to see,
God bless the moon and God bless me
and God bless the one I long to see.

the tune is ALMOST like that "hush litlle baby don't say a word, mama's gonna buy you a mockingbird" song, but with less notes for the fewer words, and really this is probably the sweetest thing I've ever heard. ^_^
