Song Description

if only he had the nerve to ask her to dance - but only a slow song, because he has two left feet. He wants to be with her, but can't bring himself to approach her. if only she would take the lead - perhaps show him how to dance, walk home with him and show him how a woman wants to be treated - he would happily comply.

Story Behind the Song

Shy, cool guy watching admired girl from afar at the prom, wanting to be with her, but afraid because he can't dance and is clumsy with women.

Broadjam Member Reviews

Take The Lead perfectly captures that moment when you know someone's out of your league - but you try anyway.

    - J Chris Griffin - Broadjam Pro Reviewer


You can hear the music inside playing.
It provides the recess for your soul.
You can feel your body slowly swaying,
Feel the rhythm taking hold.

You can feel all eyes upon you gazing,
Waltzing in in your new party dress.
You look so outrageously breathtaking -
You'd make an innocent man confess.
You'd make an innocent man confess.

Who's gonna walk you home tonight?
Whose pleasure will that be?
I'll slow dance once with you for romance,
But only if you take the lead.

Dim the lights and sing the ballad slower.
Take a breath and you might realize
The dance is full of fantasy and wonder
If you just close your eyes,
If you just close your eyes
