Dance With Me

from by Tessa Souter



Adapted from Borodin's Dance of the Gliding Maidens
Lyrics by Tessa Souter



Would you come
If I asked you to dance with me
To put on your dancing shoes
And share a romance with me

We will move
In time to our beating hearts
To a song that once it starts
I know will forever entrance me

Swept away
On silver-lined clouds with you
We'll bend the rain to purple
Orange and lilac from blue
In your arms I will follow you
To the end of time
And then I'll dance with you again

So please say
You're ready to dance with me
To take a chance with me
On our romance
