Critique it to bits if you will, folks !
Snow on the Dancefloor.
There was just a wooden floor
With the slightest spring for dancin'
There was just a low-set stage
And a glitter ball in the ceilin'.
But here was where I found the nerve.
Here was where I cast the dice
Asked you for another dance,
And looked you in those deep blue eyes.
But now it's winter
Cold and dark
Even the shadows have fled
For there's snow on the dancefloor,
Pain in my heart
And an empty pillow on my bed.
Somehow we always battled
Against the storm outside.
Could hear it, sometimes see it
But never brought it to mind.
Guess it was me that broke the lock
And let the winter in
A foolish thing, regretted since
But that's how ends begin.
You said you'd never walk away
I'm sure I said the same
But finally I think we learnt
We'd both been playing games.
So I kicked out the fire doors
And we went our separate way
You went east, I went west
With no regrets we said.
So what is it that brought me back
To the ruins of this roofless dance hall
With snow on the dance floor, one standin' wall.
What is it still makes me thrill?
It isn't the music, isn't the lights
It isn't the stars in the sky
I't's the sight of those blue eyes come back to me
And we're gonna make it this time.
