Thread Name: Origins: I See the Moon, The Moon Sees Me
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: I See the Moon, The Moon Sees Me
mom sang this to me. was one of my favorites. none of my friends had heard of it, so i googled and wow! thanks for the other versions, guys, they're great

here's my mom's version:

i see the moon, the moon sees me,
the moon shines through the old oak tree
please let the moon that shines on me
shine on the ones that i love.

oh, over the mountains, over the sea,
that's where my heart is longing to be
Please let the moon that shines on me
shine on the ones that I love

i smell the rose, the rose comforts me,
sweet and tender(alternative "gentle") as a rose should be
Please let the rose that comforts me,
comfort the ones that I love

oh, over the mountains, over the sea,
that's where my heart is longing to be
Please let the rose that comforts me,
comfort the ones that I love
