Lyrics :

Listen very carefully, my words are about to unfold
Concerning a lady I’ve seen but I never could hold
I can see by your smile,
Take a long while,
The words that come through,
I see that they’re true,
For she reminds me of you.
Don’t misunderstand me, it’s not always easy to say
The words in your head and your heart that you just can’t explain
I can see clearly,
A face in the sky,
Moon’s in your eye,
You’re passing me by.
Tell me the reason why.
I can see clearly,
A face in the sky,
Moon’s in your eye,
You’re passing me by.
Saw you riding on a moon cloud,
Saw you walking on a whirlpool,
From the corner of my eye,
I saw you.
Saw you sitting on a sunbeam,
In the middle of my daydream,
Oh my Lady Fantasy,
I love you.
