Come a little bit closer Hear what I have to say Just like children sleeping We could dream this night away But there's a full moon rising Let's go dancing in the light We know where the music's playing Let's go out and feel the night. Because I'm still in love with you I want to see you dance again Because I'm still in love with you On this harvest moon
Lyrics to "Harvest Moon" song by Neil Young: Come a little bit closer Hear what I have to say Just like children sleepin' We could dream this ni. .Because I'm still in love with you I want to see you dance again Because I'm still in love with you On this harvest moon. When we were strangers I watched you from afar When we were lovers I loved you with all my heart. But now it's gettin' late And the moon is climbin' high I want to celebrate See it shinin' in your eyes. Because I'm still in love with you I want to see you dance again Because I'm still in love with you On this harvest moon

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). What makes Mr. Young a singular talent is his authenticity. I can't say that I like every single album he's ever recorded. But to listen to him return, 20 years after the Harvest release, to some of the sounds and themes of that landmark . and to do it so beautifully, is pretty remarkable. I listen to Harvest and Harvest Moon frequently, and I listen to some of my other Young recordings frequently as well. They never sound old or dated. Their themes are timeless.
The album Harvest Moon went gold in January of 1993, platinum in February of 1993, and multi-platinum in 1997. In keeping with the rural motif of this song, let us not forget that Neil Young has also been an outspoken advocate for environmental issues and small farmers, as demonstrated by his having co-founded Farm Aid, the benefit concert, in 1985. Cover versions of this song include Cassandra Wilson on her 1995 album New Moon Daughter, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie at a 2007 stage show, and Pearl Jam in 2005 numerous times on their concert tour. The moon is a big deal to Neil Young. It shows up in 28 of his songs, and he uses it to guide him. Industry folks know that he is more likely to take on a project if it coincides with a full moon. In a 2005 interview with Harp, he explained: "Before there was organized religion, there was the moon. The Indians knew about the moon.
