One For Every Moment (3: 59)
Words and Music: James Raymond

She would run across the barren land
And pause to let the light caress her
Ask the earth to share it's secrets
And listen for the wind to tell her

He could see her so very clearly
Dancing as the moon rose to see
He could feel her breath upon him
Letting all the doubt go free

He looked to the desert sky
Counting all the stars above her
One for every moment he would love her
One for every moment he would love her

She would walk to where the land and sea
Met each other in a dance of violence
She found a treasure of untold beauty
Tossed it back and swore herself to silence

He could see her so very clearly
Dancing as the moon rose to see
He could feel her breath upon him
Letting all the doubt go free

He looked to the desert sky
Counting all the stars above her
One for every moment he would love her
One for every moment he would love her
