This awkward dance
This awkward dance, where we look into each other's glazed eyes...

We float along,
Barely touching.
Barely breathing.
To a steady drum.

I hope and pray that someday
You'll spin me back into your arms.

-instrumental break-

We don't speak
We don't speak, while we try not to step on each other's toes.

We're out of sync.
Your eyes close while
Mine stay open,
I barely even blink.

But I hope and pray that someday,
You'll spin me back into your arms.

Spin me back into your arms.
