Scarlet Pimpernel the Musical - She Was There Lyrics

PERCY:
So many nights I have stood in the moonlight,
watching it fade into dawn,
wanting her back with me, warm in the moonlight,
knowing that moment was gone -
out of mind, out of sight,
'til the moon rose tonight ...

All at once I felt a chill.
In a spill of moonlight she was there.
Though we both held very still,
there was something pulling in the air.

When she whispered through the dark,
I tried hard to hold my ground.
I believed I had a choice
'til the music in her voice
turned my whole world around.

I would like to understand,
but the stars and I begin to blur ...
If she never touched my hand,
then what filled me with the feel of her?
In between us stood a wall.
In a flash it fell apart!
Is it possible she heard
ev'ry last unspoken word
racing out of my heart?

She never turned to me,
but suddenly
we had so much to share!
I never took her in my arms,
but she was there!
Oh, she was there!

No, I never pulled her in!
Still her tenderness was ev'rywhere!
Oh, she slipped beneath my skin,
just as if she'd always been right there!
Has she been there all along?
Was I too far gone to know?
What a fool I must have been,
for how could I pull her in
when I've never let her go!
