Dance With Me

I come home to my baby at the end of the day
But when I look into her eyes, they're so far away
In a place where hearts were young and love was new
Where tomorrow was just a dream and dreams could all come true

And after all this time, I still can't see
What a girl like her is doing with a guy like me
I know the road is long and that she gets so tired
And if I could, I'd give her all that she desired

I met her on the beach at a place called First Street Grille
We talked all night and I fell so hard I couldn't get my fill
When I look back on how long she's been mine
I love her more each day, and she's still looking fine

But she gets lost in daydreams now and then
Silent and solemn as a prayer
For tattered promises that might have been
A faded ribbon in her hair

Baby, one day soon when that old sun goes down
I'll sweep you off your feet, yeah, honey, we'll hit the town
You'll wear that dress I like, we'll reminisce
First we will steal away and then I'll steal a kiss

We'll run off to a little rendezvous
A friendly crowd, a jukebox, me and you
We'll play some sweet Roberta Flack, and that's alright
Just like the good old days, we'll dance all night

But right now, baby, while we're all alone
Let down your hair and I'll unplug the phone
The house may be a mess, but it can wait
Forget that stack of bills till I get paid
We're gonna have a sweet scenario
So dim the lights, turn up the stereo
Baby, now here's the million dollar question in advance
Hey, pretty baby, can I have this dance?

Sip your Merlot, I'll drink my Maker's Mark
Nowhere to go, just us swaying in the dark
This moment everything's just how it's meant to be
So stay here by my side and dance with me
Dance with me
