We Danced

  • The bar was empty
    I was sweeping up the floor
    That's when she walked in
    I said, I'm sorry but we're closed
    And she said "I know,
    But I'm afraid I left my purse
    I said, I put one back behind the bar
    I bet it's probably yours
    And the next thing that I knew
    There we were, lost in conversation
    And before I handed her her purse
    I said, You'll only get this back on one condition"

    And we danced
    Out there on that empty hardwood floor
    The chairs up and the lights turned way down low
    The music played, we held each other close
    And we danced

    And from that moment
    There was never any doubt
    I had found the one
    That I had always dreamed about
    And then one evenin'
    When she stopped by after work
    I pulled a diamond ring out of the pocket of my shirt
    And as her eyes filled up with tears
    She said, this is the last thing I expected
    And then she took me by the hand
    And said, I'll only marry you on one condition

    And we danced
    Out there on that empty hardwood floor
    The chairs up and the lights turned way down low
    The music played, we held each other close
    And we danced

    Like no one else had ever danced before
    I can't explain what happened on that floor
    But the music played
    We held each other close
    And we danced
    Yeah, we danced Writer/s: CHRIS DUBOIS, BRAD DOUGLAS PAISLEY
