"Reaching For The Moon" lyrics - IRVING BERLIN

"Reaching For The Moon"

[Written for the film, it is not sung but the melody is heard.]

A pale new moon, a sky of blue
And here am I but where are you?
A dream of love would soon come true
If I could reach the moon and you

The moon and you appear to be
So near and yet so far from me

And here am I on a night in June
Reaching for the moon and you

I wonder if we'll ever meet
My song of love is incomplete

I'm just the words looking for the tune
Reaching for the moon and you
