Capo 5th fret ( chords relative to capo )

F  F  F  Dm  Dm

           F			F	F
On a warm night in March on a dark disco floor
I danced up a storm like I’d never before
            F			G	   F
Every step in the book and then some that weren’t listed
Dm					 Dm 		G
For a song or two I felt nothing else existed

F					F   	F
Now if a dream curled at your feet you’d take it home and name it
I’m struggling now to find something to blame it on
F	       G		  F
Strobing effects or perhaps it was that dress
Dm					Dm		G
But my eye was captured by a beautiful actress

		F		F		F
Now the minutiae’s still my memory writ large
As she danced nearer me with her coy entourage
F			G			F
She tugged at the scarf round her neck it came loose
Dm				   F   		F		F
She flung it and hung it from the disc jockey’s booth

      F		G	  Dm	    F
But before I continue one moments reprieve
F					F 
I grant you dear audience a chance to leave
	F	   G           Dm	  F
For my tale never ends in that it never started
F					G 
When the house lights came on I’d already departed

F			           F	F
No not one word was spoken nor a glance exchanged 
When the sun rose next morning the world hadn’t changed
	F		G	    F 
See we only touched elbows is the plain naked truth
Dm			      F	         F 			F
And I can’t even back up my story with proof

Cm				  F		F
We only touched elbows, felt our bones clunk together
Then the moment was over in a falling feather
F	      G		F
An accident sure but it happened I’ll wrangle
Dm			                Dm      Dm   Dm  G
Our elbows did touch our arms at right angles

		F			F	F
Now there’s naught the nosey observer could’ve guessed
But the rock and roll drummer inside of my chest
F			G	                 F 
Everyone’s seen her films and I’ll whisper her name
	Dm			F	    F
That we only touched elbows is not such a shame

         F		G		Dm	  F
For the world’s getting crowded and I can’t see a lapse
F						F
It’s not about leaving spaces but filling the gaps
 	    F	       G	     Dm		F
We’re all bumping and knocking strangers all the time
F					    G
Sometimes we don’t notice, mostly we don’t mind

F			       F	F
A foot brushes your ankle on a peak hour bus
Someone’s hand on the small of your back as they pass
F	     G		   F
A shopkeepers fingers while handing you change
 Dm					      Dm 	           G
Can lightly brush yours without feeling too strange 

	    F			F	F
But why I felt so alive I can’t quite determine
There could be a word to explain it in German
      F		G	  F
Some take others home waking up to regret it
Dm						Dm         
We only touched elbows and I’ll never forget it

G   F   F        F  
F    F   Dm    Dm   
F    G    F     
Dm   Dm    Dm     G
F   F  F   Dm  Dm 
F   G  F   Dm 
Dm  Dm

	F		    F		F
Now the innocent DJ still spins his black moons
Dm						Dm
And keeps us all moving with his faithful tunes
F	       G			F
And the lights nod in synch, they’re mechanically powered
Dm			      F		      F
We only touched elbows and I still haven’t
