I have heard this song since I was a kid and I really never listened completely to the words. In many ways it has that folk style and happy beat to it. But also it is a simple way that says "love is all a person really needs." The right persons, supportive, understanding, loving and embracing who we are without judgement. One of the things that is so important is acceptance throughout a changing time. I have also come to understand heaven and hell on earth. Everyone in one way or another journeys through the good and the negative, it is all part of that scary thing called the mind. But in reality peace and contentment is the final score, when you finally reached that place, when you wake up in the arms of the person you love , reach over and give a kiss and receive a kiss in return, that is perfection. I think there is a world of lonely people, who have not found that soul connection. Society in general is at fault or maybe people just fail to see what is really important. I think this song represents, " when less is more" When hearts come together and souls bond, less is more. Years back a friend once said, "I would never let you die alone, I'll be there" and than we shared the poets Shelly and Byron moment, ashes blowing in the sea wind. Anyway you are welcome to day dream along with me as I sing "in the misty moonlight, by the flickering firelight, any place is all right long as I'm with you"
