Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin 

Dance me through the panic ’til I’m gathered safely in 

Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove 

Dance me to the end of love 

Dance me to the end of love 

Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone 

Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon 

Show me slowly what I only know the limits of 

Dance me to the end of love 

Dance me to the end of love 

Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on 

Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long 

We’re both of us beneath our love, we’re both of us above 

Dance me to the end of love 

Dance me to the end of love 

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born 

Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn 

Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn 

Dance me to the end of love 

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin 

Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in 

Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove 

Dance me to the end of love 

Dance me to the end of love 

Dance me to the end of love.
Leonard Cohen
