We Were Dancing Lyrics

We Were Dancing Lyrics by Noël Coward :
[spoken:] I only know that when we were dancing an enchantment swept over me. An enchantment that I’ve never known before and shall never know again. Oh, its obvious that to you my behavior must seem cheap, childish, idiotic, anything you like—but it’s true this magic that’s happened—so true that all ordinary ways of behavior look shabby and unreal beside it. My heart’s thumping, I’m trembling like a fool, even now when I’m trying so hard, so desperately hard to explain to you calmly and reasonably, I daren’t look at you. If I did my eyes would brim over with these foolish tears and I should cry like a child

If you can
Imagine my embarrassment when you politely asked me to explain
Man to man
I cannot help but feel conventional apologies are all in vain
You must see
We’ve stepped into a dream that’s set us free
Don’t think we’ve planned it
Please, understand it

We were dancing
And the gods must have found it entrancing
For they smiled
On a moment undefiled
By the care and woe that mortals know
We were dancin,g
And the music and lights were enhancing
Our desire
When the world caught on fire
She and I were dancing

Love lay in wait for us
Twisted our fate for us
No one warned us
Reason scorned us
Time stood still
In that first sweet thrill
Destiny knew of us
Guided the two of us
How could we
Refuse to see
That wrong seemed right
On that lyrical enchanted night
Logic supplies no laws for it
Only one thing calls for it

We were dancing
And the gods must have found it entrancing
For they smiled
On a moment undefiled
By the care and woe that mortals know
We were dancing
And the music and lights were enhancing
Our desire
When the world caught on fire
She and I were dancing
