"Thanks For The Dance" lyrics

Thanks For The Dance

Thanks for the dance
I'm sorry you're tired
The evening's
Hardly begun

Thanks for the dance
Try to look inspired
One, two, three
One, two, three, one

There's a rose in your hair
Your shoulders are bare
You've been wearing this costume
Forever

So turn up the music
Pour out the wine
Stop at the surface
The surface is fine
We don't need to go
Any deeper

Thanks for the dance
I hear that we're married
One, two, three
One, two, three, one

Thanks for the dance
And the baby you carried
It was almost
A daughter or a son

And there's nothing to do
But to wonder if you
Are as hopeless as me
And as decent

We're joined in the spirit
Joined at the hip
Joined in the panic
Wondering
If we've come to
Some sort of agreement

It was fine
It was fast
We were first
We were last
In line
At the temple of pleasure

But the green was so green
And the blue was so blue
I was so I
And you were so you
The crisis was light
As a feather

Thanks for the dance
It was hell
It was swell
It was fun
Thanks for all the dances
One, two, three
One, two, three, one
