My love is cruel as the night
She steals the sun and shuts out the light.
All of my colours turn to blue
Win or lose.
Slow dancing, slow dancing, slow (dancing).
Scarlet eyes and see-through heart
I saw her coming right from the start.
She picked me up, but had me down on my knees
Just a-begging her please.
(Take me) slow dancing, slow dancing, slow.
And, I don't know why a man will search for himself
In his woman's eyes.
No, I don't know why a man sees the truth
But believes the lies.
My love is restless as the wind
She moves like a shadow across my skin
She left with my conscience
And I don't want it back
It just gets in the way.
Slow dancing, etc.
