This song is a cover of "Waltzing's For Dreamers" by Richard Thompson.
Oh, play me a blue 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
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, and two steps for breaking
Waltzing's for dreamers and the losers in love
One step for sighing and two steps for crying
Waltzing's for dreamers and the losers in love

Now they say love's for gamblers, oh, 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 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

Oh, one step for aching, two steps for breaking
Waltzing's for dreamers and the losers in love
One step for sighing, and two steps for crying
Waltzing's for dreamers and the losers in love

Miss, you don't know me, but can't we pretend
That we care for each other, till the band reach the end?

Oh, one step for aching, two steps for breaking
Waltzing's for dreamers and the losers in love
One step for sighing, two steps for crying
Waltzing's for dreamers and the losers in love
Waltzing's for dreamers and the losers in love
