Music & Lyrics by Josh Richardson

lyrics

The floor is empty, the wall flowers hang,
the disco ball turns, and the music begins.
A boy walks up, asks a girl to dance,
He twirls her around, and she becomes a woman.

The boys have been in the liquor cabinet,
the girls are all made up and in their best.
There are rumours Jill's been making out with Jack,
Jane is crying 'cause Dick up and left.

We are slow dancing.

A woman appears and takes his sweaty hand,
Oh how many men are still afraid of you, Sadie Hawkins.
No one here knows the old steps,
Gone long ago, are the days waltzes.

Eyes glance awkwardly, the crowd whispers,
Out on the dance floor, someone's been kissed.
All hearts are pounding with anticipation,
Because we are going slow dancing.

We are slow dancing.
