dance all these foreign moves you're making
can't make no sense
points and pirouettes suggesting
more complicated steps

but I know it's just the artistry of movement
how angles curves relate
the chemistry of moving ever closer
and balancing the weight

well I'm sitting still
while I'm spinning out in space
and just for a minute it
puts me in my place

dance and some are more familiar
like the changing of the guard
a summer swim, a chess game just beginning
kids playing in the yard

dance like the planets in rotation
the ebb and flow of tides
lying on our backs gazing out at the dance of
the stars and satellites

dance the one I knew by
just being of the earth
I've practiced moves that I could make with you since
the moment of my birth

well I'm sitting still...
