I still can recall barely touching the floor
When gliding in joy made the rest of the world seemed so damn small
And the melody played as we promenaded
To that beautiful tune that we shared as the evening awakened

It felt like we danced under lights on the stage at the Ryman
But the light was the moon reflecting like a jewel off the Bay
Cicadas sang their love songs all night to remind us
How a sweet country waltz can take all our troubles away

I can still hear the secrets we whispered
All those promises of our youth
And I can still feel the beauty of you and me
On that make believe ballroom

Just a passage in time on your daddy's porch floor
Two open hearts find a love that won't soon be forgotten
Remembering sways and two step embraces
And being held so close that you never want to escape
