about

Originally written for my band Pinqual.

lyrics

we only danced once

she wanted a rest
I did what she said
and I said I'd wait as long
as I must

she stayed near me
we sat through the event
everything felt fine but we
never did dance again

since then
I've felt better
I've looked better
I've moved better

dates on the sideline
staying in our own chairs
she never acted bored and there was
truth, until she chose an excuse

since then
I've felt better
I've looked better
I've moved better

and the ones who chose to dance since then were fine
but it's just never been the same

since then
I've felt better
I've looked better
I've moved better
I've danced better

we only danced once
