Lyrics - Dance with an Angel

Leading social dance, swing included, is a both a challenge and a terrifically fun experience. These lyrics express the promises made by the angelic lead. They are written in a six beat style. The lyrics “Dance with an Angel” were inspired by a photograph of a talented swing dancer and his equally capable partner.


Dance with an Angel
Bonus Poem for Day 168 – 20150617

Come dance with an angel,
leave your cares behind,
more than mere human,
less than divine,
you can see the halo.
Agent of the swing beat,
advocate of the dance,
follow them onto the floor,
they'll want nothing in return.

Angel's steps, yes beauty,
angel's leads, yes lovely,
come dance with an angel tonight.

Beware the fallen ones,
tempting the innocent.
Blues never hurt anyone,
silky words from Lucifer.
The rest are guardians,
protectors of their charge,
be it single or triple step,
the rock beat will be secure.

Angel's steps, yes beauty,
angel's leads, yes lovely,
come dance with an angel tonight.

Light on their flowing feet,
following the band's tune,
wings lifting their steps,
angelic guides at God's side.
Bending the laws of nature,
everything possible to them
from the downbeat forward
swing out or a triple step.

Angel's steps, yes beauty,
angel's leads, yes lovely,
come dance with an angel tonight.

Now I present myself,
I may be of this earth,
but the swing lifts me up,
putting me closer to heaven.
With you by my side,
I'll be your angel tonight.
Come dance with an angel,
come dance with me.

Angel's steps, yes beauty,
angel's leads, yes lovely,
come dance with this angel,
this angel,
with this angel tonight.
