It’s 10 o’clock, you said hello With your hand, you swung me round Butterflies in flight, drifting out of sight.
It was just you and me that night.
Chorus We had a dance in a room full of strange smiles, We had a Dance that will last for quite awhile We had a Dance We had a Dance, ooh, ooh
Back home I remember our night. Want to replay one more time Too many miles between Wishing we were alone again How many loves have lost? How many soul mates forgot? Think about our brief connection Missing your full attention
Extended Keywords: The story begins and ends in Colorado. While on the road, I met two people. It was a cold night, snow flurries were blowing in the wind, and the bar was packed with ranchers, farmers, retail clerks, medical personnel and shop owners, all looking to escape a long week. In the corner, a favorite cover band was singing 80s and 90s rock songs, and drinks were flying off the table.
I watched two strangers gradually wander closer, and closer, to each other over a period of two hours until finally, after two drinks, the man asks for a Dance. The next few hours (until closing time) were filled with light conversation, a few drinks, laughs and a few more memorable dances. And even though I saw magic on that dance floor, no emails were exchanged, no phone numbers were told, just a simple goodbye at the end of the night. I guess they both knew that extending their relationship would be more than challenging since both were leaving to pursue careers.
