Now the party's over
I'm so tired.
Then I see you coming out of nowhere.
Much communication in a motion

Without conversation or a notion. - Avalon
Where the samba takes you out of nowhere
And the background's fading out of focus.
Yes the picture's changing every moment

And your destination you don't know it. - Avalon
Dancing
Dancing
Dancing
@ dancing.
When you bossa nova there's no holding

Would you have me dancing out of nowhere. - Avalon
