One Last Dance (For the Melody) - lyrics

playlist Playlist
I'm so tired of the same old story,
Like some picture I've already seen
Now I don't care what the reason is,
I'll take no part in living that dream...
I'm so wired off of chasin' my glory,
Though it's clear that it's nearer somehow-
On the first step was the hardest one,
But that's all behind me now...
Shake hands with the man who looks like me
Show him all the dreams you could never see
Save one last glance for your memory
It's so easy to live in the shadows,
And just long for the wrong side of day
Now I don't care what the reasons is,
I'll have no part of living that way...
It's too easy to blow the whole battle,
Just sneak out when the smoke first appears
Oh the first step is the hardest one,
When your heart beats like a drum in your ears
Shake hands with the man who looks like me,
Tell him all the things you've wanted to be
Save one long wait for the tragedy...
Did you hear what happened when the song was sung,
Everyone hit the street on the run-
Out the houses, up, out, off of their beds
Thankin' the Lord for what they thought he said
But people are as different as day and night
Some folks need the light right on them,
Some can't take it that bright...
The first step's always the hardest one
Racing out of control falling back toward the sun...
Shake hands with the man who looks like me
Give him all you believe in to set you free
Save one last dance for the melody
But people are as different as day and night
Some folks need the light right on them,
Some can't take it that bright...
The first step's always the hardest one
Racing out of control falling back toward the sun...
Shake hands with the man who looks like me
Give him all you believe in to set you free
Save one last dance for the melody
