Dance Slow Decades - Angel Olsen

Thought I had a clue, it was passing by
Thought I had an answer, it was just a sigh
Thought I had a dream once - don't remember why
Your voice cut straight through me, right down to my bones
Like a winter's wind, it knocked out my soul

Thought I had some time here, left my watch at home
Thought I had ideas once, they were all on loan
Thought I conquered something, then it took me down
What I thought I heard clearly, it wasn't sound
Thought I felt your heartbeat, it was just my counting
And to what thoughts will my life be amounting?

I can hear you crying and I am crying, too
The world might be lying, but so are you
I can see you dancing, if you'd just take the step
You might still have it in you, give yourself the benefit
And dance slow decades toward the sun
Even when you're the only one

Don't look around
It's not right, it's not wrong
Dance because you know the song
I dance because I know this one
