It Takes Two To Tango

The accordion starts to play
You look me fiery into my eyes
Your arm around my waist
Your other hand seeks mine
They fall into each other
We fall into place

It takes our feet that follow our hearts
It takes one step and then the others
Quick rhythms and abrupt pauses
Still postures and long movements
Your lips that almost touch mine
And then an arm length between us
Moves that are synchronized
Opposite positions sometimes
Though we dance in perfect balance

It takes passion and desire
It takes melancholy and longing
It takes the flame of true love
It takes our bodies, our soul
It takes the masculine and feminine
For it takes two to tango
