Will you dance with me
Take my hands and lead me,
With all my faults
In the ballroom waltz
That we might have done
Had we ever been young

It'll end in tears
But not for years
If you dance with me

Will you dance with me,
Me, with two left feet
You'd be showing me how
I'm no dancer now
But soon you and I
Could step into the sky
We'll go down in flames,
Of course, but love remains
If you dance with me

I'll make only sunny weather for you
The sky will be blue forever
I'll make only sunny weather for you
To keep me and you together

And you'll dance with me
In the rain, maybe
But we won't really mind
In the end we'll find
It was just a dance
And our little romance
It'll fall to dust
But only just
If you dance with me
It'll fall to dust
But only just
If you dance with me

    General CommentIt's like he's saying, "I know that this is going to be shot to hell, but dance with me and give me this one moment of bliss."

    General CommentI think the saddest part of the song is the title itself, because from the moment he begins singing, you know from the title that the response to his question is no...

    the cautious hope he has in his voice breaks my heart.

    General CommentPerhaps the most beautifully pessimistic song I've ever heard. It'll end in tears, but not for years." Sung by Bob Mould of Husker Du and Sugar.

    General CommentI can't believe that this is the same guy who was in the greatest-slash-only pop-hardcore band (husker du of course) of all time. It's really beautiful
