The Romance of Dancing in the Dark

Just you and me

he whispered so close

just you and me

in a world of love and romance

he gave her roses

with the scent of the sweetest perfume

a glittering bauble or two

but she said

all she want was to be held close

as he held her

he whispered of his love

always near and always dear

love by scented candlelight

their love in full bloom

as the sun set and twilight came

nothing like holding tight

dancing in the dark

dancing close

just the two of them

expressing their undying love

now and forever

dancing in the dark

dancing till the morning light

it was never clearer

that their love

sparked flames

that lit up the night sky

they left behind

blazing trails

that made the broken hearted cry

never knowing such love

hand in hand

kisses full of fire and longing

nights of passion

leaving smoldering embers

in the morning light

on and on

dancing in the dark

Needed correction: "all she want was to be held close".

Nice, and of course the famous song that is also good for dancing in the dark.
