Slow Dancing

When the push and the pull of the fast lane
Starts tearing us apart
A memory from long ago
Starts tugging at my heart

I remember when daddy would go to the radio
And turn on something slow
Mom would take her apron off
Her face would start to glow, and

They'd go slow dancing around the kitchen
Like they were out on the town
Maybe baby that's what's missing
Between the two of us now
I wish you could've seen
The way he held her tight
I wish it was you and me
Slow dancing tonight

No matter how busy their day was
They'd never miss the chance
To leave behind the daily grind
And make room for romance, when

They'd go slow dancing around the kitchen
Like they were out on the town
Maybe baby that's what's missing
Between the two of us now
I wish you could've seen
The way he held her tight
I wish it was you and me
Slow dancing tonight

I know it may sound crazy
When I start to reminisce
But I'd trade everything we have
For the passion in their kiss, when

They'd go slow dancing around the kitchen
Like they were out on the town
Maybe baby that's what's missing
Between the two of us now
I wish you could've seen
The way he held her tight
I wish it was you and me
Slow dancing tonight
