lyrics

Chorus:
There’s no dancing at your funeral tonight
but i’ll be waltzing with you till the morning light

Verse 1:
My heart may be dead and cast in stone
but that doesn't mean it can’t bleed or moan
My love for you went unsung
I guess my wait had just begun...

My lifeless fingers ran through your hair
You did not stop, it’s like you didn't care
Your face was dry, not a tear in sight
Forgiving you took all my might

Chorus:
There’s no dancing at your funeral tonight
but i’ll be waltzing with you till the morning light
I may have forgotten all of the steps
hopefully this will be our last distress
Teaching me to dance again

Verse 2:
Your memory stood still but mine was moving on
only when my body lie cold, lifeless, and gone
It’s easy standing still with nowhere to go
This was when your true colors started to show

Even still I could not resist.
no one else I have so lovingly kissed.
I was waiting for you to pass away
So I knew that you could hear me say

Chorus:
There’s no dancing at your funeral tonight
but i’ll be waltzing with you till the morning light
I may have forgotten all of the steps
hopefully this will be our last distress
Teaching me to dance again


bridge:
I had nowhere left to go
God left me in your throws
I knew that you would be my final stop
I’m glad I haven’t waited for not

Chorus:
There will be dancing at your funeral tonight
and i’ll be waltzing with you till the morning light
With the shadows circling ‘round our heels
We’ll dance into the light
