You And I Must Recall

You and I must recall
How we swayed in the Spring on the Champs-Élysees
How we whirled all about in a Viennese waltz
How we skipped around Rome, and we spun near the old Spanish Steps

You and I must recall
In our thoughts and our dreams
When we danced close together through life

You and I must recall
And remember it all
As it might really happen again

When we touched and caressed under stark desert moons
When our bodies enfolded in dances of yearning and lust
When meadows would bloom and erupt in endearments in June

Remember December
Our bodies entwined
Acknowledging rapture exposed by the fruits of our dance

Remember forever
Perhaps never happened to us
But the song fills the tempo we set
In our thoughts and our dreams
How we danced

We were young when performing this play
That has always existed in time
But the dreams and the tears and the dance it would seem
Will be there when we search for what yesterday seemed

In our dreams

Holding tight to each other we dream.
