Music of the Morning

“I’m Dancing As Fast As I Can” performed by Juice Newton

He said I’ve seen you before
as the band broke into “Misty”.
I put one hand on the bar…
..the whole room within was starting to spin.

I said “You’ve got Hemmingway’s eyes,”
and that night I called him “Popeye”.
Seems that there’s so many lovers
who hold you and yet,
whose names your forget….

Dance, they said,
life is only for the moment.
The light is brief, don’t waste it
The taste is sweet, so taste it.
So I said, “I understand, I’m dancing as fast as I can.”

Maybe we’re just shooting stars
needing something to hold on to
But each thing we touch seems to vanish —
like candles and friends
they burn at both ends…

Dance, they said,
life is only for the moment.
The light is brief, don’t waste it
The taste is sweet, so taste it.
So I said, “I understand, I’m dancing as fast as I can.”

He said “I’ll see you around”
and as I brushed my hair I winked and said “you might”
Cos I know by now how it’s done…
after all the mornings after,
and all the nights…

Dance, they said,
life is only for the moment.
The light is brief, don’t waste it
The taste is sweet, so taste it.
So I said, “I understand, you see, I’m dancing as fast as I can.”
