lyrics

How much time will I waste on you tonight?
Waiting at the side of the room
With all the other fools
Hoping once you’ll meet my eye
Like that time before
When the band struck up
You and I danced across the floor

I’ve pictured the moment so many times
How you meet my eye
Oh, the restless nights I’ve spent
Straining in the sheets

We’re waltzing
My hand slips down your waist
You don’t even notice
You just love the dance

When we’re spinning across the floor
I don’t know which way is down anymore
And I’m consumed by the belle of the ball

I’ve been standing under streetlamps for hours outside your house
I don’t think you’re home
I don’t presume to know
The yellow fog sprawls about the town
And I wander for hours
I keep practicing my steps

Don’t want to go home to my small room
Covered with pictures
With pictures of you

But when we’re spinning across the floor
I don’t know which way is down anymore
And I’m consumed by the belle of the ball
