Richard Thompson – Waltzing's For Dreamers lyrics

Oh play me a blues song and fade down the light
I'm sad as a proud man can be sad tonight
Just let me dream on, oh just let me sway
While the sweet violins and the saxophones play
And Miss, you don't know me, but can't we pretend
That we care for each other, till the band reach the end

One step for aching
Two steps for breaking
Waltzing's for dreamers
And losers in love

One step for sighing and
Two steps for crying
Waltzing's for dreamers
And losers in love

They say love's for gamblers, the pendulum swings
I bet hard on love and I lost everything
So don't send me home now, put a shot in my arm
And we'll drink out old memories and we'll drink in the dawn
And Mr. Bandleader, won't you play one more time
For I've good folding money in this pocket of mine.
