it sure is hard to dance across
the room when you've got
one foot on the floor
and one foot outside the door.

i want nothing more
than to dance with you.

the peace i've known, floating along,
the deep green river with you and a song
is something like the peace i hope
to make with you my whole life long.

i want nothing more
than to float with you.

paddling through the hail storm,
clothes ravaged, the leaves all torn,
a part of me was born.

why care about yesterday's haze
when the stars above me are all ablaze?
why care about the coming dawn
when the moon pours now searchlight strong?

i want nothing more
than to dance with you.
i want nothing more
than to float with you.

    General Commenti feel like this song is talking about a relationship that she wants to grow, but the man is not allowing it to...

    it sure is hard to dance across
    the room when you've got
    one foot on the floor
    and one foot outside the door.

    i want nothing more
    than to dance with you.

    it's as if she is comparing the relationship to a dance, and it's hard to go about it, and them, if he has one foot out the door (meaning, he is leaving, or maybe questioning their relationship and is thinking about leaving).

    the peace i've known, floating along,
    the deep green river with you and a song
    is something like the peace i hope
    to make with you my whole life long.

    she finds peace in their relationship, she feels at home and comfortable, and it's something she wants to last a whole lifetime. i feel she is fighting for it, but she just wants to dance through life, float through life, with him - but he is not allowing it, and is pushing back...

    anywho, that's my lil' opinion. :-) love the song.
