I won't bury you in the basement
As I've been known to do
I won't bludgeon your memory
Leave you crying out for truth

There's a song we sing together
The song of me and you
And I was hoping that we could fix it
At least just fiddle around with the tune

But you go right, I go left
You go forward, I go back
And we're dancing this waltz alone
You go up, I go down, lost our grip
And now we've found ourselves
Dancing this waltz alone

Hush now, don't cry
It's just a lullaby
I won't leave you
Til you close your eyes
Hush now don't cry
It's just a lullaby
I'll tell you sweet lies
I won't leave your side

We were peaceful when we were sleeping
Or after we had a fight
We were civil when people were watching
We were worst when we were right

You'd go in, I'd go out
We'd forget what it's about
And we'd start dancing this waltz alone
You would smile and I'd frown
You gave it up, now who's the clown
That is dancing this waltz alone

Hush now, don't cry
It's just a lullaby
I won't leave you
Til you close your eyes
Hush now don't cry
It's just a lullaby
I'll tell you sweet lies
I won't leave your side
