Mason Williams/John Stewart

Do you remember me? Turn back the years and see. Dance the distance. Dance it if you can.
For as you'd always say, "Forever's just a day. Dance the distance. Dance it if you can."

Chorus:
And far beyond the song, I've been searchin' for too long. I can't dance the distance by myself,
And the sand where we would meet would vanish from my feet. I can't dance the distance by myself.

If you should happen by, like a soft wind on my mind, dance the distance, dance it if you can.
You can look for me where the road turns to the sea. Dance the distance. Dance it by yourself.

[Chorus:]

Do you remember me? Turn back the years and see. Dance the distance. Dance it if you can.
For as you'd always say, "Forever's just a day. Let's dance the distance. Dance it while we can."
Let's dance the distance. Dance it while we can. (Repeat and fade)
