So shall we dance?
That’s what you say as you take my hand
Don’t hesitate, I say, or think too much
So then we dance
Your hands on my waist as we spin around
Don’t complicate, I say, cause you think too much

But it’s the fairy lights and the summer nights and this whirling round
That leads me to the feeling that I can’t explain
So in this moment for once in my life
Disregard the sounds and the sights
And just run with me, run with me, run away

And so please just for once
Let me be the reckless one
The one that doesn’t have a fear
And I know it might be hard for you
To pretend to be responsible
But please, the music is playing
So we might as well dance while we’re here

And so we dance
Round and round wrapped in romance
The sparks are flying and everyone seems to know
So we dance
So close as if we’re in a trance
So close that I can count the freckles on your nose

But it’s the fairy lights and the summer nights and this whirling round
That leads me to the feeling that I can’t explain
So in this moment for once in my life
Disregard the sounds and the sights
And just run with me, run with me, run away

And so please just for once
Let me be the reckless one
The one that doesn’t have a fear
And I know it might be hard for you
To pretend to be responsible
But please, the music is playing
So we might as well dance while we’re here

But this newfound sense of liberty,
So captivating, doesn’t seem so free
It’s so big and bold and brooding and loud
I’m lost, I’m dazed
I’m drowning in the crowd

So, please, just for once
Let me be the senseless one
The one that doesn’t have to feel
And I know it might be hard for you
To pretend that we could be possible
But, please, the music is playing
So we might as well pretend that we could be real
