Lyrics: 

 

When you asked me if I'd like to dance,
I could barely stand,
but I found no walls that I could lean against,
so I took your hand

I didn't know where you would dance me to
I only knew I didn't care
I was so happy just to be with you;
it didn't matter where

You danced me to an endless ocean view
from a high mountain plain
Then you danced me through a dark abyss
over cliffs and into flame

And for awhile you seemed to disappear
My head could find no place to rest
But when the ashes and the smoke had cleared,
you were beating in my chest

What a song, what a song,
what a secret, open song we are dancing to
In the cave of the heart it's been playing all along
but until you came, I never knew

Some people ask me what it is I've gained
and if there's a teaching to impart,
but I have no answers and no state to claim,
just an arrow through my heart

And some songs that try to name this luck,
but it's my destiny to fail,
for all expressions and experience
next to this love, pale

I still don't know where we are dancing to,
but I would be a fool to care
I am so happy just to be with you;
it doesn't matter where

What a song, what a song,
what a secret, open song we are dancing to
In the cave of the heart it's been playing all along,
but until you came, I never knew.
