Lyrics:

How many times can I leave you at night,
come home, pretend it's ok.
How long can I expect you to try?
There's too many chances we've thrown all away.

'Cause we used to have it made.
Holding so tight on the dance floor we swayed.
But those lovers, meant for each other,
somehow have lost their way.
We're past our dancin' days.

The last month or two I've been feeling so blue,
and no way to soothe my heartaches.
I've tried talk and booze, and prayin' in pews,
and askin' for mercy to be sent my way.

'Cause we used to have it made.
Holding so tight on the dance floor we swayed.
But those lovers, meant for each other,
somehow have lost their way.
We're past our dancin' days.

Oh what I'd give to feel a trace,
of love that cannot be erased, of love that stays so strong, always.

'Cause we used to have it made.
Holding so tight on the dance floor we swayed.
But those lovers, meant for each other,
somehow have lost their way.
We're past our dancin',
we're past our dancin',
we're past our dancin' days.
