    My InterpretationI agree with the above comment by lazyesq. "When we were lovers, I loved you with all my heart" clarifies that the relationship is in the past.

    This song is not about a marriage or couple, but rather an all-consuming (perhaps unrequited) love that still exists. I believe the harvest moon parallels a calendar year to the seasons of life...suggesting that his life is soon ending. He is reflecting upon this intense love that he still feels in his older years for a person he wishes to be with again, even if briefly for a single evening/dance.

    Another line: "Just like children sleepin', We could dream this night away" is also being interpreted too literally. I feel that this just also correlates to the fact that years have passed between their being together, and he wants their reuniting to be wondrous, ethereal - such like childlike dreams.

    I understand this song as a deep love that will always exist, though the two involved were separated and probably always will be. I do not think the separation is particularly desired by either party.
