I was walkin' real fast, I was too scared to run
Past this lonesome graveyard where the highway meets the sun
Well, that old graveyard's been around since the civil war
I had a funny feelin' that I'd been here before

I heard a voice, it was talkin' real slow
She said, "It's time to make a choice, is it yes or is it no?"
I said, "Okay, do what you wanna do"
Then she took me to a world, a world I never knew

Where we danced so close, we were teenage ghosts
We were doin' that graveyard waltz
After all is said and done, we were just too young
To be doin' that graveyard waltz, graveyard waltz

Next thing I knew the first dance was done
But this magic carpet ride had just begun
And Heaven only knows where she learned to drive
Right between the tombstones and the ones still left alive

And then that old soul band began to play
In triple time, she was begging me to stay
And when the masquerade had started up again
She said this is the night, the night that never ends

Where we danced so close, we were teenage ghosts
We were doin' that graveyard waltz
After all is said and done, we were just too young
To be doin' that graveyard waltz, graveyard waltz
Doin' that graveyard waltz

Where we danced so close, we were teenage ghosts
We were doin' that graveyard waltz
After all is said and done, we were just too young
To be doin' that graveyard waltz, graveyard waltz

Where we danced so close, we were teenage ghosts
We were doin' that graveyard waltz
After all is said and done, we were just too young
To be doin' that graveyard waltz, graveyard waltz
Doin' that graveyard waltz
Doin' that graveyard waltz

We were just too young
To be doin' that graveyard waltz, graveyard waltz

I was walkin' real fast, I was too scared to run
