georgetownboy Lyr Add: Midnight on the Water (Ron Kavana) (28) Lyr Add: MIDNIGHT ON THE WATER (Thomasson, Croizat 05 Feb 01


The best version of this song I've heard is by THE MILL RUN DULCIMER BAND, Annandale, Virginia. They credit the music to Benny Thomasson, words to John Croizat.

There are times when I am blue, thinking of you and me.
Midnight on the water and how it used to be.
There are stars among the trees and some old memories I know.
Midnight on the water, not so long ago.

CHO: Though they are gone like falling leaves,
Those dreams are clear as in a mirror,
Made by the moon on the water.
And our love was never stronger,
But the picture was broken by the waves we left behind.
Midnight on the water once upon a time.

There are times when I am blue thinking of you and me,
Midnight on the water and how it used to be.
In the stillness of the lake where my thoughts turn back again.
Midnight on the water, do you remember when?

Though they are gone like floating leaves.
Those dreams are clear as in a mirror,
Made by the moon upon the water.
And our love was never stronger,
But the picture was broken by the waves we left behind.
Midnight on the water once upon a time.

Repeat last verse.
