This Dance

When I pass by,
You catch my eye
But you just keep on walking.
You're wonderful,
And I'm just a shadow on the wall.

'Cause you don't see
What we could be
Because neither of us
Will take that chance.
You have your reasons,
I have mine,
I understand,
So why is this so complicated?

All I ask for is a chance,
So tell me, may I have this dance?

Chorus:

One song,
One night,
The band slows down,
They dim the lights.
I see you there,
This is my chance.
May I have this dance?

I say
It has to be this way
To keep myself from getting hurt.
Walls up
Could be driving you away.

Come back,
I don't know jack.
Don't get the wrong impression.
I could be mistaken.
I know it's never easy.

All I ask for is a chance,
So tell me, may I have this dance?

Repeat Chorus

I'm tired of
Excuses,
Of holding in what I feel,
So maybe I can tell you
In a song.

One song,
One night,
The band slows down,
They dim the lights.
I see you there,
This is my chance.

My heart speeds up,
And time slows down.
Won't be afraid
This time around.
I see you there,
This is my chance.
So tell me,
May I have this dance?

All I ask for is a chance.

So tell me,
May I have this dance?

Oh,
This dance.
