Thanks for the Dance Lyrics


Leonard Cohen - Thanks for the Dance Songtext

Thanks for the dance
I'm sorry you're tired
The evening has hardly begun
Thanks for the dance
Try to look inspired
One two three, one two three one

There's a rose in your hair
Your shoulders are bare
You've been wearing this costume forever
So turn up the music, pour out the wine
Stop at the surface, the surface is fine
We don't need to go any deeper

Thanks for the dance
I hear that we're married
One two three, one two three, one
Thanks for the dance
And the baby you carried
It was almost a daughter, or a son

And there's nothing to do, but to wonder if you
Are as hopeless as me, and as decent
We're joined in the spirit, joined at the hip
Joined in the panic, wondering
If we've come to some sort of agreement

Da, da, da-da
Da, da, da-da

It was fine, it was fast
We were first, we were last
In line at the Temple of Pleasure
But the green was so green, and the blue was so blue
I was so I, and you were so you
The crisis was light as a feather

Thanks for the dance
It's was hell, it's was swell, it was fun
Thanks for all the dances
One two three, one two three, one

Da, da, da-da
Da, da, da-da
