Give me your hand
Let's dance away sorrow
Of the pain that never ends
Let's hit the dance floor
With determination
To forget the past
Let's dance like there is no tomorrow
And believe things will change
They will never repeat
In the same pattern
Let's get lost in the
Sounds of cosmic staccato
For a moment of relief
Let's get drunk with the passion
Hoping the time will heal
The wounds of deeds
We never accomplished
Let's get carried away with the
Winds of change
Believing the next
Morning will never come again
