  • I, I loved you in secret
    First sight, yeah, we love without reason
    Oh, twenty-five years old
    Oh, how were you to know, and
    My, my love had been frozen
    Deep blue, but you painted me golden
    Oh, and you held me close
    Oh, how was I to know that

    I could've spent forever with your hands in my pockets
    Picture of your face in an invisible locket
    You said there was nothing in the world that could stop it
    I had a bad feeling
    And darling, you had turned my bed into a sacred oasis
    People started talking, putting us through our paces
    I knew there was no one in the world who could take it
    I had a bad feeling

    But we were dancing
    Dancing with our hands tied, hands tied
    Yeah, we were dancing
    Like it was the first time, first time
    Yeah, we were dancing
    Dancing with our hands tied, hands tied
    Yeah, we were dancing
    And I had a bad feeling
    But we were dancing

    I, I loved you in spite of
    Deep fears that the world would divide us
    So, baby, can we dance
    Oh, through an avalanche?
    And say, say that we got it
    I'm a mess, but I'm the mess that you wanted
    Oh, 'cause it's gravity
    Oh, keeping you with me

    I could've spent forever with your hands in my pockets
    Picture of your face in an invisible locket
    You said there was nothing in the world that could stop it
    I had a bad feeling

    But we were dancing
    Dancing with our hands tied, hands tied
    Yeah, we were dancing
    Like it was the first time, first time
    Yeah, we were dancing
    Dancing with our hands tied, hands tied
    Yeah, we were dancing
    (Ooh, we had our hands tied)
    And I had a bad feeling
    But we were dancing

    I'd kiss you as the lights went out
    Swaying as the room burned down
    I'd hold you as the water rushes in
    If I could dance with you again
    I'd kiss you as the lights went out
    Swaying as the room burned down
    I'd hold you as the water rushes in
    If I could dance with you again

    Dancing with our hands tied, hands tied
    Yeah, we were dancing
    Like it was the first time, first time
    Yeah, we were dancing
    Dancing with our hands tied, hands tied
    Yeah, we were dancing
    And I had a bad feeling
    But we were dancing
