How do I dance to this song baby?
Should I go a little faster?
Should I dance to a different tune?
Should I dance little slower this time?
Should I dance new school?
Should I do an old-school move?
Remember when this funky dance began?
I saw you walking down the room
You shone like the angel you are
You lit up my world baby in a dashing heartbeat
You said hello so warmly
You smiled so reassuringly
You shone so elegantly I knew it all
And the music began to play softly
And I started to dance to the most beautiful voice
I began to dance to your smile
I began to dance to your grace
I began to dance to your tender heart
Baby I danced to your loving heart a thousand and one times
You heard the music baby
The music plays when you smile
The music plays when you sigh
The music plays wherever you are
The music touched me
I felt the scent of your music
You felt the sweet music baby
I did not compose the song
I danced to the sweet sounds of your soulful heart from the day baby
That day the music started to play baby
And I am still dancing baby
Dance with me for a moment
Dance with me for a day
Dance with me for three days
We could dance for a minute
We could dance in the light of the summer
We could dance in the shadows of spring
We could dance under the stars on a cold winter evening
Baby believe we can dance for a summer of good times
Baby believe we can dance and make the earth stop to watch us
Baby believe we could dance for us
You could teach me to dance you dance
I could teach you to dance for me
Show me how you want me to move
I could dance all day long
I could dance in the rain
I could dance to the wind
I could turn the sound up
I could turn the sound down
I could put the song on repeat for a lifetime
I could sing the song for you again and again
Do you dance there?
Do they play the kind of music you can dance to?
Because you stopped dancing with me
You stopped dancing but the music plays on
I did nothing but dance baby
I did nothing but dance to you
I did nothing but dance to you baby
I did not have to do a thing
I danced to us
I danced alone
I danced in my dreams
I danced in my struggles for you
I danced in my anguish
Who could I tell?
You could see me struggling to dance
Why did you have to cry alone?
All I wanted to do is cry with you
All I ever wanted to do is cry for you
All I want to do is dance with you
I do not know where you are
But baby I feel you smile
Baby I feel you cry
Baby I feel you laugh
Baby I feel you in and out
I have been feeling your pain
I have been feeling your pain for days
What if I could carry your pain?
What f I could carry your fears?
What if I could dance your fears away?
I wish you could see me dancing to the pain I feel for you
You could feel me dancing for you
You could see me dancing for you
You chose to dance in silence
You chose to cry in silence
You chose to see me dance in silence
But you could hear the music playing
As my heart cried out for you
You could feel me reaching for you
You could feel my love for you
You could feel the purity of this dance for my love
So I am saving this dance for you
Because the music is playing
You can hear and feel it
I have known that you do since the day you said hello
We did not have to be the best dancers in town
We do not have be the best couple
Baby we just have to dance
Because there is nothing like the perfect dance
I am here baby
Here for you baby
Baby will you dance with me for a moment?
