Young love… a song (written 2014)

AFTER THE MUSIC STOPS

 

Our eyes met across the crowded floor

And then they parted once again

I was shy beyond my 16 years

So were you up to the end

 

As we watched our friends get up and dance

We still sat there in our chairs

Catching glimpses of the other one

Still constricted by our fears

 

Tell me, won’t you tell me

What happens when the music stops

If I put out my heart and feelings

Could I survive if they were dropped

So do I dare take a giant step

For such a little man

Would I be here if I hadn’t hoped

To finally get my chance

Tell me

What happens

After

The

Music

Stops

 

Was it a courage that I never knew

Existed inside of me

Because the next thing that I knew

I’m in front of you, you see

 

And when you up looked into my eyes

Your hand extended out, just so

I must admit I was surprised

When I took it in my own

 

Tell me, won’t you tell me

What happens when the music stops

If I put out my heart and feelings

Could I survive if they were dropped

So do I dare take a giant step

For such a little man

Would I be here if I hadn’t hoped

To finally get my chance

Tell me

What happens

After

The

Music

Stops

 

I don’t know if our friend did see us

As we walked out on the floor

My nerves were fighting, let go and run

And somehow find the door

 

But the gentle touch of your soft hand

Cemented me in place

Then the song that played was a slow dance

Finally time to find my grace

 

I don’t recall any moves I made

With her out there on that floor

I only knew the comfort that I felt

Her close to me and so much more

 

Tell me, won’t you tell me

What happens when the music stops

If I put out my heart and feelings

Could I survive if they were dropped

So do I dare take a giant step

For such a little man

Would I be here if I hadn’t hoped

To finally get my chance

Tell me

What happens

After

The

Music

Stops
