may I have this dance?
your arm goes around my slender waist,
you pull me tight, my body sways with yours,
I feel your strength flowing through to my soul
the music calls to me…take this dance,
take this chance… do I dare?
do I deserve a chance to grab for the golden ring?
at least a few turns around the carrousel?
I doubt, but do I dare say no,
do I dare pass up this chance at happiness?
I hear your urging, "reach, try, don't give up"
ever the doubter, I still ask, what shall I do if I fall?
for if I miss, the golden ring does go on
round and round without me.
do I dare, my love, risk it all and reach out
take your hand and answer your question
"May I have this dance?"
you pull me tight, my body sways with yours…
