lyrics

He was young
And still in denial
But she made him smile
And that was enough

He’d been shy
Too anxious to ask her
But as he walked past her
He knew it was time

Saturday night
The dance joint on Del Rey
Is having a soiree
He said to her

Take my hand
Pull me close
Spin me round on the floor
Tell me that you wanna be
The only two people in the world
Dancing into the night

When she heard him ask
She felt her heart racing
Too nervous to face him
She turned away

But Saturday night
She went to the dance joint
In hopes that she’d push her
Nerves aside

There he was
Alone on the dance floor
He smiled when he saw her
And heard her say

Take my hand
Pull me close
Spin me round on the floor
Tell me that you wanna be
The only two people in the world
Dancing into the night

She took his hand
He pulled her close
They spun around on the floor
The spotlight shone down on them
When the joint shut down they were still
Dancing into the night

Take me out
Take me, take me out

Take my hand
Pull me close
Spin me round on the floor
Tell me that you wanna be
The only two people in the world
Dancing into the night

She took his hand
He pulled her close
They spun around on the floor
The spotlight shone down on them
When the joint shut down they were still
Dancing into the night
