Came in together, but you held me..
The process walking right through that door, at the
I can't seem to remember, the lights were so bright
And the disco ball blurred in the turn of that night
But it was perfect, I was told the tux was starched and
Grabbed the glass of punch, nervousness struck, stood
by that wall
Arms folded, myself, I didn't know yet
Until you came over, stood by me, you posted
You put your hand out like I was stranded
Tried to pull me on that dance floor, I stepped
See I wasn't ready yet, but you were my medicine..
Showed me that trust through that love that you held me
Our backs against the wall as the DJ would spin
The soundtrack had changed as he played that mix...
Our lives flashed in front of us, just a glimpse
We were together and experience this..
You finally pulled me up, I didn't want to..
But you filled me up, from the bottom of my heart
And as we walked through that gymnasium that I'd been
Feeling like my chest would explode from my heartbeat
To the middle of the floor I almost panicked
You put your hand out and I fearfully grabbed it
The most beautiful thing that I'd seen on this planet
She laughed 'cause you could tell that I didn't know
how to dance yet..
We started moving and I, didn't know what I was doing
"don't you love music it's such a gift and I'll give it
to ya, but you gotta use it"
I strayed, you brought me back in..
Trying to sneak a flask outside of that gym
She said "You don't need that, look within."
She hugged me, looked into my eyes, she gave me a kiss
And she said, "I can't help you, if you don't let me
You're here to live just be, don't forget me
The end of this dance you don't want to regret me,
'Cause tonight you'll all be set free"
"Last dance!" the Dj yelled
Looked into her eyes and I could see myself..
Slow motion, frozen, toast to this moment
Like there is no morning, like there is no morning
No emotions, you on my shoulder, me lead and you follow
As we circle the floor like the globe through this
Makes us seem so small
With you in my hand like the skyline holds the stars
Not letting go, but I can't hold on
Fading through my fingertips, watching us fall..
I try to catch you with my arms
I would never take you for granted when I had you in my
To all I ever wanted, please play my song
And put the record to the needle, don't ever touch that
You are perfect, forget that prom dress
My God, seconds away from God, yes
Somebody turned the heat on in this party
Or we're becoming one because I'm melting into your
One being, heart beating, universe falling
The ground split right between us and that concrete..
Separated my love, I could hear her calling
Separated, but I could hear her calling
Goodbye forever, never see you again
