Dance with me in the moonlight
Take my hand
Curve my spine with your hand a-slight!
Swirl on the beats
Gently but strong following the feet
Maintain the lines
Forming a whole is what you seek!
Lengthen the step
More complex it will get
Free the spirit
Unleash your regret!
Take this dance further up
See those eyes around you stare
Awe and spellbound, will they dare?
One step to the next
Clear the way, this is a concept
To lead so they follow
Into the depths so hollow!
