"Nanna's Song" lyrics - RALPH MCTELL

"Nanna's Song"

If I take you dancing
Down the streets to watch you laughing
And stop still in the spring night rain
Just to watch you smile again
Understand I hold you hand
A little tight as if by this
I'll stop the night from running
Into morning light too soon.

Ice cream and candy bars,
A Paris moon and Paris stars
Can you count the times
That we heard the chimes of Notre Dame
Across the Seine
To remind us sadly once again,
Time just like the river
Was swiftly passing by.

Just a few reminders
Of the little things that bind us
Do they make you sad
Or make you glad
To think about the times we had
In my dreams you're dancing
In the embers of an evening,
And I'll hold your hand a little tight
Just to stop this special night,
From running into morning light too soon.
