Taxi Dancing

Album: Hard to Hold (1984)
Charted: 59
  • I think that it's high time we had a talk
    I think that we're making a big mistake
    I've been feeling lately the magic is gone
    Are we just together for convenience sake, baby

    I don't believe it (feeling)
    I don't think that's true (tied down)
    It'll just pass if we allow it to (need to break free)
    It's just a stage we're going through (they say clean cuts)
    I think you're just restless for something new (heal much faster)

    Baby, feeling like we pay our dime
    And all we get in return
    Is a piece of each other's time

    Are we just Taxi Dancing
    Lost somewhere in a slow dance for two
    And the band that was playing
    Has finally stopped playing our favorite song

    Are we just Taxi Dancing
    You're paying for me and I'm paying for you
    And are we holding on to a feeling with desperation

    Don't know if you're right
    Don't know if you're wrong
    Seems to me we haven't danced for long

    Don't make it hard (I won't)
    Don't make it easy (hold you)
    We'll just walk away (if you)
    At the end of the song (must go)

    Baby, put one last nickel in the jukebox
    Give that love we once felt
    Just one final spin around

    'Cause we're just Taxi Dancing
    Lost somewhere in a slow dance for two
    And the band that was playing
    Has finally stopped playing our favorite song
    And we're just dancing

    And the band that was playing
    Has finally stopped playing our favorite song
    Are we just Taxi Dancing
    You're paying for me and I'm paying for you
    And are we holding on to each other in desperation
