Remember how scary it was to go up to " an angel" and ask her to dance? This song is about remembering those days, and wondering if it meant as much to her as it did to you. " the Dukes all over this one"
You walked into the room looking like a queen
From a far-off land, and exotic dream
I nervously held out my hand
Like it was all just part of the plan
From the twisted dirt-filled backroads my family came
Mama never got to fly in an airplane
Around the kitchen table each night
She taught her boys what is wrong or right.
So ill put on my favorite old blue jeans
Button up my one good shirt,making sure its
pressed and clean
Hold your hand in mine as we spin across the floor
And get hypnotized by your eyes once more.
My hand placed wishingly on your back
As the band plays, “my old friend the blues”
It was then I should have knows
That cinderella always leaves on her own
They tell me “all in love is fair
But only I heard my heart break
Here’s to the girl with the raven hair
Who taught me how much mine could take.
The crickets chirp... In prayer my eyes closed tight
I’ll try to conjure up the memories of you tonight
Maybe your somewhere across the sea?
Did you ever think about me?
