....segue into 'Dancing In The Moonlight'...


Lyrics:

Modern Music on my radio
Another station and another show
If only I could let my feelings flow

When you're lonely and you're far away
When those steel guitars begin to play
Please don't let them steal your heart away
From me...

I hear the rhythm of the rain begin
A shining broadcast on a silver wind
Will you recieve these programmes deep within?

The moon is melting in a blazing sky
I hear the flames sing but I don't know why
I hope that only shadows see me cry
For you...

I feel like I'm Falling
The music is calling me away
Leave today...
You know that I'm needing
All the love that I'm leaving here with you
A song for two...
