I'm Dancing As Fast As I Can

I'm Dancing As Fast As I Can

Juice Newton

He said, "I've seen you before",
As the band broke into Misty.
I put one hand on the bar.
The whole room by then
Was starting to spin.

I said, "you've got Hemingway's eyes",
And that night I called him papa.
It seems that there are so many lovers
Who hold you and yet,
Whose name you forget.

[Chorus]
Dance, they said
Life is only for the moment
The light is brief,
Don't waste it.
The taste is sweet so taste it.
So I said I understand,
I'm dancing as fast as I can.

Maybe were just shooting stars
Needing something to hold on to,
But each thing we touch seems to vanish,
Like candles and friends
They burn at both ends.

[Chorus]

He said I'll see you around,
And as I brushed my hair
I winked and said, "you might".
Cause I know by now how it's done,
After all the mornings after
And all the nights.

[Chorus]
