Lyrics

Some people dance cheek to cheek
Some people dance

Life was so simple then
A kind of playtime
You made it easy then
We had a great time

I try not to talk too fast
Like you do when you fall in love
But some people let their passion scream
And some people understand their dream

Life was so simple then
A kind of playtime
You made it easy then
We had a great time

Some people dance cheek to cheek
Some people dance

Life was so simple then
A kind of playtime
You made it easy then
We had a great time

I take you somewhere different
It’s only me can see the change
‘Cause some people are tied to emotion
And some people understand their dream

Life was so simple then
A kind of playtime
You made it easy then
We had a great time

Some people dance cheek to cheek
Some people dance

Life was so simple then
A kind of playtime
You made it easy then
We had a showtime

Some people dance cheek to cheek
Some people dance

Some people dance cheek to cheek
Some people dance

Imagination

Lyrics

She lit a cigarette, both hands behind her back
Thought she was hungry, lack of choice saw to that
Only you can try to see what I’m really like
She said, “Only you can understand the way I feel tonight”

She blamed excesses on the American dream
So seldom witnessed, never seen

Imagination could make a man of you
Imagination could make me love you too
Imagination is all I want from you

She lost her virtue before she could write
I lost mine too on my very first night with you
You’ll have to guide me, these impossible schemes
You make me steal unstealable things

She blamed excesses on the American dream
So seldom witnessed, never seen

Imagination could make a man of you
Imagination could make me love you too
Imagination is all I want from you

And she blamed excesses on the American dream
So seldom witnessed, never seen

Imagination could make a man of you
Imagination could make me love you too
Imagination is all I want from you

Imagination could make a man of you
Imagination could make me love you too
Imagination is all I want from you

Imagination
Imagination
Imagination
Imagination
