A waltz when she walks in the room
She pulls back the hair from her face
She turns to the window
To sway in the moonlight
Even her shadow has grace

A waltz for the girl out of reach
She lifts her hands up to the sky
She moves with the music
The song is her lover
The melody's making her cry

So she dances
In and out of the crowd like a glance
This romance is from afar calling me, silently

A waltz for the chance I should take
But how will I know where to start
She's spinning between constellations and dreams

Her rhythm is my beating heart

So she dances
In and out of the crowd like a glance
This romance is from afar calling me, silently
I can't keep on watching forever
I'd give up this view just to tell her

When I close my eyes I can see
The spotlights are bright on you and me
We've got the florr
And you're in my arms
How could I ask for more?

So she dances
In and out of the crowd like a glance
This romance is from afar calling me, silently
I can't keep on watching forever
And I'm giving up this view just to tell her.

    General CommentI love this song, so so much. Especially the line, "even her shadow has grace". Just beautiful, and one day [if it's not too big-headed to say this] i hope someone will sing this about me, or to me. Perhaps a wedding song? Ohhh i just love it. My other favourite line is, "the melody'######## her cry".

    I love it so much.

    General CommentThis song is amazing...it has so much great imagery. I think it's self explanatory...about watching someone from afar and knowing you should take a chance to talk to that person.

    General CommentHe loves her but cant tell her, he wants to dance with her, but cant ask her

    He is shy and near the end of the song he takes the plunge and he gets his dream girl

    General CommentI think its metaphoric. He watches her from afar, and shes so beautiful that everything she does is this graceful and elegant dance.
    It is so beautiful it almost made me tear up when I first heard it. Doesn't he sing the best songs?

    General CommentI love this song so much!!! It's so poetic, and whoever wrote this is a true genius.

    "I can't keep on watching forever. I'd give up this view just to tell her."

    That line is phenomenal. It describes love from afar so well.

    My InterpretationThis is one of my favourite songs. It makes my heart soar. Josh plays my heart like an instrument.

    A waltz when she walks in the room
    She pulls back the hair from her face
    She turns to the window
    To sway in the moonlight
    Even her shadow has grace

    I don't think she's actually doing this but his heart is making him feel this because it's love at first sight.

    A waltz for the girl out of reach
    She lifts her hands up to the sky
    She moves with the music
    The song is her lover
    The melody's making her cry

    He feels out of her league like she could never be interested in him so he continues to watch her.

    So she dances
    In and out of the crowd like a glance
    This romance is from afar calling me, silently

    A waltz for the chance I should take
    But how will I know where to start
    She's spinning between constellations and dreams

    Her rhythm is my beating heart

    She has him in a a trance. He wants to approach her but he doesn't know how. His heart is her instrument.

    So she dances
    In and out of the crowd like a glance
    This romance is from afar calling me, silently
    I can't keep on watching forever
    I'd give up this view just to tell her

    He's starting to gather the courage to approach her.

    When I close my eyes I can see
    The spotlights are bright on you and me
    We've got the floor
    And you're in my arms
    How could I ask for more?

    Now he's dreaming of what it could be if he approaches her. How perfect it could be. At the end he leaves it open for interpretation but i think he gets the girl. How could he not with words like that. I'm a sucker for romance xxxxxxxxx

    General CommentI love this song. from every standpoint. As soon as I heard it I first started crying, then my theatre side kicked in and started choreographing a dance to it... Josh Groban is one of the best things on earth.

    General CommentIf you love this song then watch the video of performance Julianne Hough choreographed for Dancing with the Stars on youtube. I knew it was special but didn't really put it together until earlier this morning. Just the dancing alone has brought me to tears for years and made me want to learn how to ballroom dance. The lyrics, the performance...it all makes sense now.
