"If you

can walk

You can

tango"

But there

isnt always

a person

to tango

with.

Sometimes

you need

to tango

alone

to learn

to appreciate

your own

life

and dance

to your own

beat.

Totally agree. Sometimes you need to curl your toes around, and dance with the music in the air, alone.
