"Moonbeams" as written by and Scott West Reitherman....
I've had a rich life in large part because of him
In my fifth year here he left this place
And the boys he raised and the girl he'd found
Were soldiers now

Things got lost in the moonbeams there
For a little while
And I watched as the grown-ups grieved
But I was still a child

Locked in a dream, I saw his face
Backlit in the light of what he made
Impressions of struggle were all I gained
And his hand took my hand
My feet matched his stride
The ground swept away as we rose through the sky
And we floated like that

So we walked in the moonbeams there
It shook everything
And we filled up the vacant years
I could hardly speak
So we walked in the moonbeams there
It shook everything
And we filled up the vacant years
I could hardly speak

I explore his old house
And Grandpa's clothes and shelves
To hold on to artifacts and the histories
??

Oh we walked in the moonbeams there
It shook everything
And we filled up the vacant years
I could hardly speak
When you walk in the moonbeams there
It shakes everything
When you clutch at the glistener drink

I could hardly believe it
I circle the reasons
Things got lost in the moonbeams there

    "Impressions of struggle were all I gave"

    "And Grandpa's clothes and shelves"
    "And Grandpa's closet shelves"

    "??"
    "I invent and retrace and unfold"

    "When you clutch at the glistener drink"
    "When you clutch at the bliss in a dream"

    "I circle the reasons"
    "I search for the reasons"
