"Fishing In The Dark" as written by Wendy Waldman and Jim Photoglo....
Lazy yellow moon comin' up tonight
Shinin' through the trees
Crickets are singin' and lightning bugs
Are floatin' on the breeze
Baby get ready

Across the field where the creek turns back
By the old stump road
I'm gonna take you to a special place
That nobody knows
Baby get ready, ooh

You and me going fishing in the dark
Lying on our backs and counting the stars
Where the cool grass grows
Down by the river in the full moon light
We'll be fallin' in love in the middle of the night
Just movin' slow

Stayin' the whole night through
Feels so good to be with you
Spring is almost over and the summer's come
And the days are gettin' long
Waited all winter for the time to be right
Just to take you along, baby get ready

And it don't matter if we sit forever
And the fish don't bite
Jump in the river and cool ourselves
From the heat of the night
Baby get ready, ooh

You and me going fishing in the dark
Lying on our backs and counting the stars
Where the cool grass grows
Down by the river in the full moon light
We'll be fallin' in love in the middle of the night
Just movin' slow

Stayin' the whole night through
Feels so good to be with you

You and me going fishing in the dark
Lying on our backs and counting the stars
Where the cool grass grows
Down by the river in the full moon light
We'll be fallin' in love in the middle of the night
Just movin' slow

You and me going fishing in the dark
Lying on our backs and counting the stars
Where the cool grass grows
Down by the river in the full moon light
We'll be fallin' in love in the middle of the night
Just movin' slow

    General CommentAWWW yes very simple, and obvious with beautiful imagery.Love opens you up to sensory experiences and makes you pay more attention to the beauty in nature especially, which is what this song captivates perfectly

    General CommentPretty much the only country song i like.

    This song was on a mix my boyfriend made me for valentines day. He lives 1500 miles away from me right now and he loves fishing. I didnt know the song very well but my roommate was there listening to the song yelling at me "are you listening to the lyrics!? he loves you!" haha :-D

    General Commentthis is a truely great song, the lyrics basically play out possably the greatest experiance for a first person is love with someone, my favorite line is "And it don't matter if we sit forever and the fish don't bite" when the tempo changes i get goosebumps when i hear that line
