The Dance

	  		Intro 
C    F  C  F  Fm  C 

Verse 
                Em       Am              C7 
Morning comes a-calling, knocking at the door 
   F                 C            Dm                G       C 
It slipped up on two lovers, it's found them on the floor 
                  Em      Am               C7 
Sunlight spills a shadow, shading every glance 
     F                Fm               C 
It's hard to tell the dancers from the dance 

Verse 
                  Em     Am             C7 
Footsteps ring so hollow as he tries to lead 
F                C       Dm               G      C 
Once she used to follow, now they tip-toe lead 
                  Em       Am           C7 
Going through the motions, in a lover's trance 
     F                Fm               C 
It's hard to tell the dancers from the dance 

Chorus 
         Am       E7            F 
Now he's dancing alone down the stairs 
           Em     C 
Pretending not to care 
    F         Fm         C 
The ballet is empty of romance 
     F                Fm              C 
It's hard to tell the dancer from the dance 

Instrumental 
C    F  C  F  Fm  C 

Verse 
                   Em      Am              C7 
They're so close together, they're so far apart 
        F               C                Dm               G      C 
They've memorised their lines, but never understood their part 
                       Em              Am                   C7 
He says, "You'll never live alone, she says, "I'll take the chance" 
     F                Fm               C 
It's hard to tell the dancers from the dance 

Chorus 
          Am       E7             F 
Now she's dancing alone, come the morning 
        Em      C 
Waiting for the dawn 
    F         Fm         C 
The ballet is empty of romance 
     F                Fm              C 
It's hard to tell the dancer from the dance 
     F                Fm              C 
It's hard to tell the dancer from the dance 
     F                Fm              C 
It's hard to tell the dancer from the dance 

Outro
