Poeming Again: “Don’t You Dare Dance Away With My Heart”

An attempt at song lyrics. Pulling a Taylor Swift. Although, I’m dramatizing the situation quite extensively. (But then again, she probably does too).

Verse 1: You’re a sly marauder, drifting my way
A tiger in kitty attire looking so harmless
You know exactly what to say
To bring down all my defenses

(Chorus) Don’t you dare dance away with my heart,
Away with my heart, away with my heart
‘Cause I know the moment I fall,
The moment I fall
Is the moment I fall completely apart.

Verse 2: I tell myself to flee from your hypnotic presence
But you’ve already got my heart in your paws
Got me impressed by one word, so pleasant
I find myself breaking all my own laws

(Chorus) Don’t you dare dance away with my heart,
Away with my heart, away with my heart
‘Cause I know the moment I fall,
The moment I fall
Is the moment I fall completely apart.

Verse 3: It’s hard to believe you’d be so full of guile
You and your nerdy Clark Kent glasses
Tricking me with that gentleman’s smile
I’m not as good of an actress

Verse 4: Now I’m grasping onto a silver line of moonlight
Praying that this night will never end
Wishing for so much, so much more
Than just a shallow one-night stand.

(Chorus) Don’t you dare dance away with my heart,
Away with my heart, away with my heart
‘Cause I know the moment I fall,
The moment I fall
Is the moment I fall completely apart.
