Lyrics

In a blue ruffled shirt and a pink bouteneer
I took a deep breath before I asked her to dance .
With less than a week left in our senior year
I was so scared to blow it, I tripped on my rented tux pants.

She giggled and smiled, then she offered her hand,
I could not believe how she put me at ease.
Her head on my shoulder, my heart in her hands.
She closed her eyes, I begged "Please, let her be

Someone to Hold on the dance floor
To sway with me, stay with me forever, amen
I want Someone to Hold on the dance floor
For more than one night, for all of my life
In a world without end.

We both found summer jobs by the middle June
We saved what we could though the paychecks were small
A September wedding coming up soon
She got a gown from the mall; I got strings of tin cans
Tied to the fender of my dark blue Trans-Am

But oh, those two golden bands had no guarantees,
Hearts have their seasons and sometimes they freeze
They say the thaw will come to us all
By degrees

Now I'm sitting alone as the band starts to play.
Couples join hands as they head for the floor.
Rhythm and affection on public display,
And I watch from the sidelines like so many times before

I look up to see this most elegant pair
Smiling like the king and the queen of the prom,
Dressed up and graceful with silver white hair,
Somebody's Granddad and Grandmom,
Renewing my faith that springtime will come
And this freeze will be over and done - and I will find

Someone to Hold on the dance floor
To sway with me, stay with me forever amen
Someone to Hold on the dancefloor
For more than one night, for the rest of my life
In a world without end.
