Neil Young - Harvest Moon




"Harvest Moon" is a song written by Neil Young that was first single released on his 1992 album, Harvest Moon. It reached 36 on the UK singles chart.


The song uses a moon motif, which Young has mentioned as being very important to him and having quasi-religious undertones. It is a tribute to his wife Pegi Young, and the two are dancing in a bar in the music video. Linda Ronstadt provides the backing vocals.




Lyrics


Come a little bit closer

Hear what I have to say

Just like children sleeping

We could dream this night away

But there's a full moon rising

Let's go dancing in the light

We know where the music's playing

Let's go out and feel the night


Because I'm still in love with you

I want to see you dance again

Because I'm still in love with you

On this harvest moon


When we were strangers

I watched you from afar

When we were lovers

I loved you with all my heart

But now it's getting late

And the moon is climbing high

I want to celebrate

See it shining in your eye


Because I'm still in love with you

I want to see you dance again

Because I'm still in love with you

On this harvest moon


Because I'm still in love with you

I want to see you dance again

Because I'm still in love with you

On this harvest moon
