a letter came one day, it slid into the hall
I couldn't breathe, could not feel anything at all
the words were yours, yet I just couldn't hear your voice
I loved you so, I simply never thought you could

and for the second time I buckled at the knees
the time before you gently raised me to my feet
your hands were strong against my trembling little ribs
and all at once we both fell lost in love's abyss

all the faces turn away
all the faces drift away
all the dancers turn away
all the dancers fade
