Lyrics - Almost Strangers

The lyrics “Almost Strangers” are about the special kind of connection possible in partners dancing. Most of the time a dance is a chance to engage in enjoyment of the music and movement. The partner, while appreciated, is part of the entire experience. There are rare times when the partner supersedes the dance, and the other’s company is the reason to dance. “Almost Partners” is about those moments.


Almost Strangers
Poem for Day 229 – 20150817

Hold me tight partner of the night,
do not stray and do not wander.
You’re the one I came for tonight,
to dance and to love in close rapport.
In lights dim we will hard embrace,
thirsty souls seeking to be quenched,
lonely hearts longing for respite,
almost strangers in like company.

Body to body with no space in between,
connection by touch and beating heart,
linked together by passion’s urge,
sensual time spent with clothes on.
We’ll show restraint fully dressed,
that is our promise to God above,
but the proximity is too much
for those who look on in dismay.

Almost strangers, seeking comfort,
almost strangers, connection made,
almost strangers, shared restraint,
almost strangers, never again.

I’ll share you with others if I must,
but know this my lovely partner,
you’ll return to my arms in time
to resume where we had left off.
They may say I hold you too close,
that our dance has gone far beyond
social dance of two strangers met
and to this they are correct.

They don’t need you like I do,
don’t crave your calm company,
your sense of impropriety
rolled into the one who can swing.
I’ll ask them to look away,
leave me to my close proximity,
lonely hearts longing for respite,
almost strangers in like company.

Almost strangers, seeking comfort,
almost strangers, connection made,
almost strangers, shared restraint,
almost strangers, never again,
never again, never again.
almost strangers, never again.
