dance with me baby lyrics – ben rector

“dance with me baby”

and do i leave for california
when my love is here behind in tennessee?
from the night times and the mornings
i am aching for the better part of me
i’ve a thousand miles behind me
and a thousand more that i have yet to go

well, i kept all of your letters
reading in between the white lines on the road
the white lines on the road

so won’t you come home and dance with me baby
cause i’ve been traveling this road that is so dark
so won’t you come home and dance with me baby
cause it’s been too long
it’s been too long

and i find i am divided between here and there
and you and them and me
and i know this dream that i am chasing
can very well go and be the death of me
so darling, don’t you worry
i’ll be there before you can close your eyes
i’ll be there to kiss my baby
and dance with you until the morning light
until the morning light

so won’t you come home and dance with me baby
cause i’ve been traveling this road that is so dark
so won’t you come home and dance with me baby
cause it’s been too long
it’s been too long
oh, yeah
