Falling in love

It's like a song that doesn't seem to start
but past the quiet gentleness
An anthem will arise
Let the melody unfurl
Let it build
Find the triumphant chorus
declare with passion
your true heart
make your statement
stnad your ground
don't lose your chance by bending now

It might be a mistake
It might be painful after all
But it isn't wrong
To wait
is not the bad thing to do

For now the bass is thrumming
the drummer stills his hands
the singer croons
the audience shift restless in their stands
now is not the time
not the moment
you can't make it be
let it come

It might be a mistake
It might be painful after all
But it isn't wrong
To wait
is not the bad thing to do

don't take your stand too early
don't choose before the chord is played
take this time
join the dance
learn the steps
and find your place
then as the chord builds
you will turn
you will step
you will toss your head
and the right partner
will have been there all along

On that note
with that chord
as all the power is released
in the right time

The real moment will be worth waiting for
There will be no compromise
For one moment
There will be no doubt
There will be other dancers
In the mediocrity of the chorus
in the impulse of the bridge
in the lull of the breathless pause
between notes
anticipating that this might be it

But the real song is playing onwards
it carries the moment
The crescendo is coming
