Hold me. Hold me tighter than you have ever held me before. Dance with me. Dance like we will never dance again. Inhibitions of yesterday are meaningless and consequences of tomorrow are stamped and addressed. Feeling your heartbeat next to mine, dancing away with rhythm and rhyme. There was a time when I knew I was only yours but that is a distant memory. You used to be my lover but now you’re an enemy. We used to go so well together, like birds of a feather, it should have been forever. But forever was too long; to keep our hearts as one and soon you will be gone. Being with you now, turns my heart to stone. I should be alone, but I’m dancing with you. Dancing, dancing, dancing, what happened to romancing? ‘Love will tear us apart’, I should have known this from the start, but I fell. We’ve danced this dance before, you taught me all I know. Fast, slow, fast, slow, fast, fast, fast – Now where do we go? You don’t need me and I don’t need you, but we’re dancing the night through. Perhaps I just yearn for affection, given to me under your direction. Dancing with you, I’ll never miss a step, I’ll never forget. But since our first dance, I’ve danced with others and you have too. That’s how I know we’re definitely through. Your eyes always told me, I was the only one. But the magic in your eyes has very slowly gone. We could never dance again, I know this, but I still pretend. After the dance is over, you look into my eyes. A tear drops down my cheek, We can’t cover up the lies. You say it’s best you go, I just nod and agree. Now I’m not tied down to you, now my love is free.
