Dance Me To The End Of Love

Dance me to your beau­ty with a bur­ning violin
Dance me through the panic ‘til I’m gathe­red safe­ly in
Lift me like an oli­ve branch and be my home­ward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Oh let me see your beau­ty when the wit­nes­ses are gone
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
Show me slow­ly what I only know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the wed­ding now, dance me on and on
Dance me very ten­der­ly and dance me very long
We’­re both of us bene­ath our love, we’­re both of us above
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the child­ren who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains that our kis­ses have outworn
Rai­se a tent of shel­ter now, though every thread is torn
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to your beau­ty with a bur­ning violin
Dance me through the panic till I’m gathe­red safe­ly in
Touch me with your naked hand, touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
