Dance With Me

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
Through the darkness, through the lies:
One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me,
Ignore their shouts, ignore their cries:
One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
Don’t tremble, hold your head high.
One two three, one two three
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
They can’t hurt you, don’t you cry,
One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
It’s lonely dancing on your own.
One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
But I’ve been living all alone.
One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
I wish I had never come here.
One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
But I will not shed a tear
One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
Breathe in, breathe out
One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
I can face those demons now
One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.

One two three, one two three,
take a step, dance with me.
Or I’ll dance alone again.
One two three, one two three,
Won’t you please dance with me?
