Lyrics

You rolled in like a storm and brought the rain
Showered me with scorn and all your pain
You told me you were torn in between dates
Now there’s nothing I or Bobby Smith can say
To chase this torrential torture away

There just ain’t words to say how sorry I am
For acting like a school boy trapped in a man
There’s nothing I won’t do for one last chance
May I have this dance?
Just one last dance

Blew back into town just like the wind
Beyond repair the damage that I did
We both assumed we’d never speak again
Till I saw you in those turquoise pumps and tight black vinyl pants
I need you back my friend

There just ain’t words to say how sorry I am
For acting like a school boy trapped in a man
There’s nothing I won’t do for one last chance
May I have this dance?
Just one last dance

I’ve been dancing with the ghost of myself
I’ve been dancing with a ghost, it’s true
Take the heart in the jar off my shelf
Pull it out and give it back to you

There just ain’t words to say how sorry I am
For acting like a school boy trapped in a man
There’s nothing I won’t do for one last chance
May I have this dance?
Just one last dance
