But Tonight We Dance Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Breathe deep and easy, swallow this pride
Stare at my shaking hands through bone dry, blood shot eyes
Clock strip the hours, I count the miles
Will you be there waiting, awake until sunrise?

I have traveled in darkness, for what seems like days
I, come from the sinkholes, collapsed under this weight
I know not your sorrow, but I know mine
So say you'll stay and dance with me tonight

In the glow of twilight, our world is finally calm
I felt it complete me, when the stars give way to dawn
A language universal, but I speak not his tongue
Is this a night that spins forever or a dawn that never comes?

I have traveled in darkness, for what seems like days
I, come from the sinkholes, collapsed under this weight
I know not your sorrow, but I know mine
So say you'll stay and dance with me tonight

Tomorrow, we might wake in solitude and silence
I will give you everything if you would only have me
Tomorrow we will sweat and toil
Our hands will quiver caked with soil

Tomorrow we'll give it one last chance
But tonight we dance
But tonight we dance

And for this, I travel in darkness, for what seems like days
I, come from the sinkholes, collapsed under this weight
I know not your sorrow, but I know mine
Just say you'll stay and dance with me tonight
