​The Band Is Playing Too Slow

This song is by Chris Knight and appears on the album Chris Knight (1998).

It's midnight and the music is playing
It's the same old song every night
The melody is made out of memories
The words you and I used to write
I paid the band when you left me
Expecting them to pack it in
But heartaches's a stubborn musician
And it's playing a waltz that won't end
And I can't help but remember you
Morning high midnight low
I don't want to dance with your memory
But somehow I can't let you go
The band is playing too slow

Now I've got to find a new partner
And get on with my life
But these dreams of moonlight dances with you are still sweet
If a little off time
And I can't help but remember you
Morning high midnight low
I don't want to dance with your memory
But somehow I can't let you go
The band is playing too slow
