Dance Hall Of Dreams
© 2014 Lyrics & Music by Bob Bentley

Style: Country Waltz 95bpm

Verse 1: She walked in on his arm with a smile on her face
Washed over by memories in this special place
Where she first saw him smile, it was love at first sight
What she felt then, she still feels tonight

Verse 2: He took her hand gently and walked to the floor
Together, familiar as always before
And the comfort he felt as he danced with his friend
He hoped that the dance wouldn't end

Chorus: So they waltzed like the old days, in a world of their own
Graceful together, in their spiritual home
They could carry on dancing, forever it seems
In love, in the dance hall of dreams

Bridge They'd never been parted for more than a day
When wartime was on them and he went away
But he made it home safely and she held him so tight
She said when you're ready we'll go dancing at night
One step at a time but I know what it means
To go back in the dance hall of dreams

Chorus: And they waltzed like the old days, in a world of their own
Graceful together, in their spiritual home
They will carry on dancing, forever it seems
In love, in the dance hall of dreams

Verse 3: She looked in his eyes and she wondered out loud
Do you still love me, do I still make you proud
He smiled at the question as he whisked her away
Nothings changed since our wedding day

Chorus: With the mirror ball spinning, sparkling light on the floor
They felt their heads swimming like youngsters once more
They would carry on dancing for ever it seems
In love, in the dance hall of dreams

They could will carry on dancing, forever it seems
Both lost, in the dance hall of dreams
