Lyrics

The You Never Danced With Me Waltz
words and music by Steve Givens

At the ballroom that night before he went off to war
They danced every dance but the last.
As the band played a waltz he took her aside:
"Save this dance 'till I'm back by your side." (refrain)

Refrain: And she danced "The You Never Danced With Me Waltz"
All alone on linoleum floors.
And she sighed, and she swayed, and she dreamed of the day
He would come and lead her away
2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1.

Oh but after the war, she slipped out of his heart
And he stayed in the City of Lights.
He played bass in a band and found him a wife,
And twenty years flowed from his life.

When he did not come home she did not lose heart
And she kept the fire burning for years.
And then she married a man out of anger and fear
And he left her when she turned 39. (refrain)

[Instrumental bridge]

He thought about her again when his wife passed away
And with the memory came the pain of his lies.
So he packed up his life and kissed Paris goodbye.
And he went home in three-quarter time.

She married two other men before she gave up on love.
She grew old and she lived all alone.
'Till one day in late May he showed up at her door.
And they held to each other and danced. (refrain)
