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?
