Right on Cue
All of it has led up to this moment-
All the late nights,
All the practicing,
All the secrecy.
It has all led up to this moment-
Walking out onto the dance floor.
There's the signal; honor your partner
The music begins
Nervous butterflies have multiplied exponentially -
So many people are watching...
Musn't miss a step, musn't miss a cue.
Centered in the ballroom under the chandelier,
We continue on despite distrations.
All of this work, fine-tuning, perfecting -
I can't blow it all to the wind now -
I must continue on.
Be sure to breathe,
Be sure to not be sturn or serious;
Graceful should be my movements.
I am dancing - this is what I love to do -
I just haven't danced in an environment quite like this before.
I must continue on; it will be over in an instant.
I can't back out now; I must finish the dance.
All right on cue...
