​Waltzing's For Dreamers

This song is by Carrie Rodriguez and appears on the album Love and Circumstance (2010).

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 Sir, 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, losers in love
One step for sighing, two steps for crying
Waltzing's for dreamers, losers in love

Now they say love's for gamblers, all the pendulums swing
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

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

And, Sir, 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, two steps for crying
Waltzing's for dreamers and losers in love
Waltzing's for dreamers and losers in love
