When You Dance

When I was a young man,
I gave all my soul to my singing.
And some evenings some girls gave it back,
With a dance and a smile.
But the evening would end,
And the girls would go home.
I’d grab all my gear,
And sing home all alone.

Chorus:
Will you dance while I sing?
Will you dance while I sing?
Will you dance, will you move to the music,
The rhyming and rhythm,
Believe in the lover,
Who’s taking you with him?
When you dance,
When you dance while I sing.
When you dance,
When you dance while I sing.

There’s a girl on the floor now,
Who’s got a few issues to dance through.
She came ready to claim,
Any magic we might manage to bring you.
Well her lover has died,
But still carries the corpse.
She’s looking for loopholes,
And screams herself hoarse.

repeat chorus

The third verse is always the best verse,
For Hollywood endings.
But we live in a different space,
And that’s the vibration I’m sending.
When we all were much younger,
We danced out of hunger.
Some primitive need,
To surrender to wonder.

repeat chorus

 

“When You Dance” appears on The Soul You Save.
