Liquor burns my tongue
It stings to count to three and look to see a hand up on your waist
But he holds you like he should
Graceful
Gliding
Glimpse of lover's kiss
Another round of ale
And I don't believe this

Movements of a demigod
We're caught in a waltz
And I hope we dance forever
A dream from which I'll never part
And awake from your arms
I'd never
Ever

He whispers in your ear
From what I see
It turns you on
Sends shivers down your back
Like the violin runs
Graceful
Gliding
Glimpse of lover's touch
I can dance with my gloves on
I think this has gone far enough

Movements of a demigod
We're caught in a waltz
And I hope we dance forever
A dream from which I'll never part
And awake from your arms
I'd never
Ever

Watch your steps and count to three
Stare across the room with careful scrutiny
Assess the situation
Proof is what it needs
To show that I'm a man
I know just what I want
And have the liquid confidence to show her what I've got
The man that never cared
That never bottled up and hid from all the feelings that he had
And all the things he never did
I stop my slurring speech and expect the best reply
"Will you dance before the night ends
Just one more time?"

Adrenaline
The confirmation
Losing to the charm
In my arms

Movements of a demigod
We're caught in a waltz
And I hope we dance forever
A dream from which I'll never part
And awake from your arms
I'd never
Ever

    General CommentThis is possibly the best song (in my opinion) of the album. It's also very original, with the way it all comes together. I'd say, what I like about it most is that during the verses, he slightly slurs, as if he is drinking too much while watching this catastrophe of a night.
    It's also incredible, because I don't think I've ever heard the word demigod in a song before. It's awesome!

    General CommentYeah, it's about getting drunk & working up the courage to ask someone to dance. I believe that's how Steve put it. It's also about redheads & irish girls. :)

    General Commentits about jealousy. THe singer is looking as his ex lover is dancing with someone who doesnt amount to the lead singer. but the man dancing still makes her happy. and thats all the singer wants.
