May I have this dance saw you sitting lonely
I hope you would say yes may I have this dance look into my eyes I
As I offer you my hand my hand dance forever stretch out my hand to dance
With your inviting warmth providing hand and I stand out facing me embracing me
Into my companion for a dance, dance forever dance forever when we dance
I'll whisper nothing in your ear speak in words you'd never hear
This is my love it will not stop or start and you know
That in your heart you know that in your heart you lift your hands to me
You lift you hands to me and hold me so close and you dance forever
And you dance forever and you dance forever

    General CommentThis song is on The Militia Group comp. I'm surprised noone has heard it. This was the first song I heard from Copeland.

    General CommentI finally got to hear the tracks from we Copeland performed as Ev Angel. Great song, Aaron has an amazing voive and is the best songwriter, right up there with Coner Oberst.
