  • Came in together, but you held me
    The process walking right through that door, at the entry
    I can't seem to remember, the lights were so bright
    And the discoball blurred in the turn of that night
    But it was perfect I was told the tux was starched and all
    Grabbed the glass of punch nervousness, structured by that wall
    Arms folded, myself I didn't know yet
    Until you came over, stood by me, you posted
    You put your hand out like I was stranded
    Tried to pull me on that dance floor
    I stepped backwards
    See I wasn't ready yet, but you were my medicine
    Showed me that trust through that love that you held me with
    Our backs against the wall as the DJ would spin
    The soundtrack had changed as he played that mix
    Our lives flashed in front of us, just a glimpse
    We were together and experience this

    You finally pulled me up, I didn't want to
    But you filled me up, from the bottom of my heart
    And as we walked through that gymnasium that I'd been watching
    Feeling like my chest would explode from my heartbeat
    To the middle of the floor I almost panicked
    You put your hand out and I fearfully grabbed it
    The most beautiful thing that I'd seen on this planet
    She laughed 'cause you could tell that I didn't know how to dance yet
    We started moving
    And I, didn't know what I was doing
    You whispered, "don't you love music
    It's such a gift and I'll give it to ya
    But you gotta use it"
    I strayed
    You brought me back in
    Trying to sneak a flask outside of that gym
    She said "You don't need that, look within"
    She hugged me, looked into my eyes, she gave me a kiss
    And she said "I can't help you, if you don't let me
    You're here to live just be, don't forget me
    The end of this dance you don't want to regret me, live
    'Cause tonight you'll all be set free"

    Last dance the Dj yelled
    Looked into her eyes and I could see myself
    Slow motion, frozen, toast of this moment
    Like there is no morning, like there is no morning
    No emotions, you on my shoulder
    Me lead and you follow
    As we circle the floor like the globe
    Through this infinite mass
    Makes us seem so small
    With you in my hand like the skyline holds the stars
    Not letting go, but I can't hold on
    Fading through my fingertips, watching us fall
    I try to catch you with my arms
    I would never take you for granted when I had you in my palms
    To all I ever wanted, please play my song
    And put the record to the needle, don't ever touch that off switch
    You are perfect, forget that prom dress
    My God, seconds away from God yes
    Somebody turned the heat on in this party
    Or we're becoming one because I'm melting into your body
    One being, heartbeating, universe falling
    The ground split right between us and that concrete
    Separated my love, I could hear her calling
    Separated, but I could hear her calling
    Goodbye forever, never see you again
    Winterball 2012, The End
