Dance with me

Will you be my love?
Will you free my heart?
Rock of ages am I
Singing river thou art

May I have the next dance?
May I kiss your sweet lips?
With your hair hanging down
To the sway of your hips

O dance with me
Dance with me
Dance with me now

You are fine in your wisdom
You are noble of brow

So dance with me
Dance with me
Dance with me now

The far distant gunfire
Makes it sweeter somehow

Violet eyes
Long blue kirtle
And your bracelets of jade

Jet-black hair
Heart-shaped locket
With your secrets engraved

Thou art so fair, pretty maiden
Wouldst thou me disavow?

Will you dance with me
Dance with me
Dance with me now?

Take my hand, pretty maiden
Take my arm, walk with me
A shawl for your shoulders
And a song just for thee

Come and walk beneath the moon
Come and gaze up at the stars
The lion and the virgin
Are in Venus and Mars

So dance with me
Dance with me
Dance with me dear

The jasmin is fragrant
And the shore-line is near

Dance with me
Dance with me
Dance with me do

The sand is so soft
Wouldst thou take off thy shoes?

May I kiss you?
May I hold you?
May I drink in your eyes?

May I breathe in your perfume
’Til the golden sunrise?

You be so true
You be so tender
You be scented like the breeze

Will you dance with me
Dance with me
Dance with me please?

Dance with me
Dance with me
Dance with me do

You are forever
I am now
You are love
I am truth

Dance with me
Dance with me
Dance a new day

Beyond understanding
Beyond all the pain

You bring me to heaven
You bring me to peace
You move through the garden
And time seems to cease

O you move through the mountain
You move through the sea
I am home in my heart
When you dance close to me
