It Keeps Us Dancing

There’s a wreckage here, it lines the coast

There’s a heartbeat, like a ghost

Moving slowly through its frame

There’s a silence, a sad refrain

Where you’re going, is where I’ve been

Where your heart leads, it’s not the end

Like a fire, you’ll grow and grow

And it keeps us moving, it keeps us dancing

Oh, my past, love, is harsh and thick

But still, you’ve come back around, 

love, to pull me up from the sticks

And through these memories, of love in vain

We keep on moving, and moving, 

and moving, and moving, and moving

Oh, the past, love, it carries weight

And though I swear, love, it’s far too late

Like a fire, we’ll grow and grow

And it keeps us moving, it keeps us dancing

But in this wreckage tonight

Through the dark, there’s a light that grows

And, oh, the horns of the dawn

Beg this heart to move on and grow

 

Oh, you battered, oh, you broke

Turn your wheels here, guide your spokes,

Because this fire will grow and grow

And It keeps us moving, it keeps us dancing

 

Oh, say the sun to the soil

Here’s to my ever-loving girl

Here’s to the heart on my sleeve

A piece of you’s a piece of me

 

Oh there’s a wreckage tonight

But I’m feeling all right

Oh, to the world and her spoils

I couldn’t love you more!
