Ribbon Road lyrics


We Should Have Danced

WE SHOULD HAVE DANCED

I was dreaming, I was feeling
I was being led up to the sky
and the dawning came a-calling
it's never too late to reply

I was wakened, I'd been waiting
in a queue to the end of the road
and the holding went out floating
and I knew I had somewhere to go

Chorus
And the music played into the small hours
and I thought I could never let go
and my head became bright sherbet fountain
and my feet danced of nights long ago

In the moonlight, there was my light
and the silver, it turned into gold
and the moments were forever
and the silence was broken for good

Now the tides roll, and the meadows
ripple in sight of the sun
and the wind sings out of nowhere
as I watch the river return

Chorus
And the music played into the small hours
and I know I will never let go
and my head is a bright champagne fountain
and my feet know the dance
and my feet know the dance
and my feet know the dance
and my feet know the dance
that we should have danced so long ago
