  • Play us a song we can slow dance on
    We want to hold each other
    Play us a groove so we hardly move
    Just let our hearts beat together
    Oh baby, 'cause it feels so good
    When we're close like this
    Whisper is my ear and let me steal a kiss

    Come on and touch me
    When we're dancing
    You know you've got that loving touch
    (Loving touch)
    Touch me when we're dancing
    I want to feel you when I'm falling in love

    Tonight's the night and it feels so right
    My heart is saying it to me
    You're the one I've waited for so long
    So let your love flow through me
    Oh baby, 'cause it feels so good
    Just to be this close
    You've got me up so high
    I could fly coast to coast

    Come on and touch me
    When we're dancing
    You know you've got that loving touch
    (Loving touch)
    Touch me when we're dancing
    I want to feel you when I'm falling in love

    Touch me when we're dancing
    You know you've got that loving touch
    (Loving touch)
    Touch me when we're dancing
    I want to feel you when I'm falling in love
    Touch me when we're dancing
    You know you've got that loving touch
    (Loving touch)

  • Jim from Dover, Deok, so I guess it's been established that these 2 can really put together a mood in music. I'm going to play a song we're going to slow dance on because our hearts have always beat together. We've waited oh so long for "our" moment and when it happens, just all of you enjoy the fireworks. We will. That special someone is getting closer all the time and before you know it, We've Only Just Begun....again! And this time, we'll get it right. ILY
