You Never Learned How To Dance

lyrics

It’s a one step, it’s a two step, it’s a misstep, it’s a waltz,
One you don’t know
Its a night, like tonight, like the night, when you thought you might just go
You never learned how to dance
Did you?
When I first saw you
I didn’t know what to do

It's a heart stop, an eyes lock, across the room, a night in June
It's a cliche, but please may, I hold your hand anyway
It's a hit, it's a miss
It's no more than this
Oh it's everything
You never learned how to dance
Did you?
When I first saw you
I didn’t know what to do

It's a foxtrot, a fandango, an I know where you wanna go
It's a rhumba, its a polka, it's a why don’t you wanna
It’s an arabesque, it’s a good guess, its a oh who could care less, I’m gonna
Its a jitterbug, a cha cha cha, a shot in the dark
Everyone wants what they got on that ark
Its a can can, its an oh man, you know I’m your biggest fan
You never learned how to dance
Did you?
When I first saw you
I didn’t know what to do

Its a step up, a step down, a ladder, a hand up, a rung, a song you ain’t sung
It's a prize, it's a promise, it's a romance, it's a run girl, you better run fast
It's a high five, it's a touch down, it's a knockout, it's a drag down all nighter
It’s the first wave, it’s the last page, it’s the golden engraved lighter
You never learned how to dance
Did you?
When I first saw you
I didn’t know what to do

about

Lo Carmen Los Angeles, California

Lo Carmen has a way with words, confessionary tones pervade her songs; equal parts rolling narratives, romantic rumination and restless, slow burning country soul. Using her gifts for wry lyricism and close to the bone observation, Carmen spins gold from playful twists of phrase, letting her lyrics and gilded vocals shine among the supernatural country arrangements. ... more
