Dancing

You look a little tired, my dear
And quite unlike yourself, I see a tear
Falling down across your slender face
May I give your hand a little kiss
And will you let me stay and reminisce
About your world of ballerinas
For I remember you gliding across the stage
With lights all shining down on you
And the crowd that you adored
Would always beg for more

Dancing, just a little girl and her dancing
Who had won the world with her dancing
You always dreamed of ballerinas
Dancing, I guess your home has been your dancing
And now you feel alone without your dancing
But will you stay, and dance for me?
Will you stay with me?

But you've reached the heights, you've had the calls
You've danced for kings and queens in famous halls
You've lived in a world of lights
So now, you shouldn't cry, but look ahead
And won't you let me take you home instead
So I can give you some tips from an old dreamer
For the best of all dreams are the dreams for two
And I've been so in love with you
So let the young win the stage
So we can turn the page

Dancing, just a little girl and her dancing
Who had won the world with her dancing
You always dreamed of ballerinas
Dancing, I guess your home has been your dancing
And now you feel alone without your dancing
But will you stay, and dance for me?
Will you stay with me?
