lyrics

May I THIS DANCE?

You are so good looking that I think you might be sad
& so smart with words that I think you could be lost
& so good at kissing that I think you might be
missing someone
& so calm in the storm
so cool
You might be way off course

You know so many people that I think you don't know anyone
& you laugh so hard that I think you're gonna cry
You have so many plans, but you get nothing done
& when you tell the Truth it's
just another lie
You don't know the reason why

Cuz all I ever do is look for anything that's wrong
But I love you, baby you can hear it in every song
take a chance with me
try this dance with me,
the night is young,
the night is young,
May I have this dance?
the night is young...

You pretend to know the answers, but you don't have a clue
Your room is clean, but your life's a total wreck
Your body's tight & your clothes are hip
but you don't make love
with anyone,
unless you're drunk,
& now you’re feeling less & less

Cuz all I ever do is look for anything that's wrong
But I love you, baby you can hear it in every song
take a chance with me
try this dance with me,
the night is young,
the night is young,
May I have this dance?
