Come Dance With Me

Come dance with me, my love, I care not where.
On a sandy beach, our steps we shall share,
while the sun is high, we waltz, hot and slow,
as our thoughts take on a sensual glow,
and we dream of night, our bodies laid bare.

Take my hand, lead me to a field so fair
where we glide with daisies, without a care,
as rain patters down, and the sun sinks low,
come dance with me…

Hold me tightly in the crisp mountain air,
as dusk gives way to night, without a prayer.
Our bodies sway, ‘neath the moon’s argent glow, 
and we come together, a liquid flow.
With stars in our eyes, one more time, mon cher,
Come dance with me…
