Neruda – Solitary Shadow In A Tango lyrics

Was that your foot I stepped on to?
Or am I just too fast?
I did rehearse the steps you turn left while I go right
The gentle wind that blew your hair
To your shoulders I just stared
I watched the shadows of both of us
Swaying swiftly in a moonlit night

One, two, wish I could I count forever

As we held hands our head up high
You closed your eyes I felt you sigh
Then I held you near me, you whispered softly
Don't let me, don't let me dance alone

I ran my fingers thru your hair
It felt like you were never there
I searched the shadows of both of us
Empty, barely seeing light

One, two, wish I could count forever,
Couldn't count forever

But your minds made up, I never learned
You let me dance

As we slip hands I asked you why
Don't hide your eyes I see you cry
When I learned with you, this dance called tango
I never thought that you'd let go
But your minds made up, I never learned
You turned your back and never to return
Can't hold you near me, to say to you softly
You let me, you let me dance

I guess I said I won't let you dance alone
But you let me dance alone
In this dance called tango
