Chasing A Lovers Dance
Across the sky you dance to the flash of music
I follow in a burst of light,
I cry a sudden rain of tears
knowing I can't catch you in the night.
The music stops but for a moment
as you prepare to leap across the sky,
I realize what can never be
no matter how hard I try.
Winds sweep beneath me
and carries me toward you,
but dies down and I fall behind
then the music stops and the sky turns blue.
The music is over and you disappear
I'm left picking up the debris,
left chasing all the shadows
of a lovers dance called you and me.
