"Dance Slow Decades" lyrics - ANGEL OLSEN

"Dance Slow Decades"

Thought I had a clue
It was passing by
Thought I had an answer
It was just a sigh
Thought I had a dream once
Don't remember what
Your voice cut straight through me
Right down to my bones
Like a winter's wind it
Knocked out my soul

Thought I had some time here
Left my watch at home
Thought I had ideas once
They were all on loan
Thought I conquered something
Then it took me down
What I thought I heard clearly
It wasn't sound
Thought I felt your heartbeat
It was just my counting
Unto what thoughts will
My life be amounting

I can hear you crying
And I am crying, too
The world might be lying
But so are you

I can see you dancing
If you'd just take the step
You might still have it in you
Give yourself the benefit
And dance slow decades
Toward the sun
Even when you're the only one

Don't look around
It's not right
It's not wrong
Dance because you know the song
I dance because
I know this one
