"Slow Dance" as written by and Jonathan Luke/nixon Mcduffee....
Pardon me for saying I was afraid
She'd never give me the time of day
If love is a slow dance
I just hope for one chance

I hope time could stop
It's hard for me to breathe
She's really walking over here to me
What should I say?
What should I do?

Don't let this end now
Slow this dance down
I could stay here all night
Forever
(Forever)

This is not my strongest point, that she knows
She pardons me for stepping on her toes
I've heard she's a pageant queen
So what's she doing dancing with me?

I hope time could stop
It's hard for me to breathe
She's really falling in love with me
What should I say?
What should I do?

Don't let this end now
Slow this dance down
I could stay here all night
Forever

Forever
Dance with me forever
Teach me every step
Every tip and every turn
Your arms around my neck
You make me want to learn

I'm only getting better

Don't let this end now
Slow this dance down
I could stay here all night
Forever

Don't let this end now
Slow this dance down
Don't let this end now
Don't let this end now

Slow dance
Slow dance

    General Commentmy girlfriend just got me their album a few weeks ago and this has got to be one of the best songs on the album besides built for sin and 23 days. i think its about a guy thats with a girl whose possibly out of his league and he doesnt want to ever lose her because he knows how much value she holds.

    General Comment I to think the song is about a girl who (he thinks) is out of his league. In the beginning it says "if love is a slow dance, I just hope for one chance". I think you can relate the "dance" and the relationship throughout the song. Such as...He meets a girl who he thinks is out of his league. They date and he is a little insecure because she is popular and has had several relationships whereas he is somewhat new to dating. He falls in love and doesnt want it to end. He starts learning through their relationship "every dip and every turn" what and what not to do.

    My first real date was with a very popular cheerleader and I was not social at all. She had been in several relationships and I learned a lot from her. So I guess thats kind of how I see it. :)
