Response 1: We will always keep dancing, you and I

We will always keep dancing, you and I. Long after our chocolate-ice-cream-summer years have gone,

Through stay-up-late Wednesdays, on starry lawns and late-night platforms.

We will always keep dancing, you and I. Long after others have said goodbye,

Down dreaming-spire streets and dragonfly riverbanks and muddy paths (one above, one below).

We will always keep dancing, you and I. Long after youth and beauty have faded,

Smiling in the wind and sunshine with scarves and hats and borrowed coats.

We will always keep dancing, you and I. Long after bedtime books have all been read,
With whispered words and love when nights are too dark and too long.

We will always keep dancing, you and I. Long after glasses have all been lost and found and borrowed,

Two souls matched, together burning brighter.

We will always keep dancing, you and I.

Until the starlight holds us forever in its arms.
