Bucks Fizz /

Tears on the Ballroom Floor (long version)

Pale young lovers
Dancing hand in hand
As the local band
Plays the final tune

Sad young lovers
Hold each other tight
For they know the night
Will be over soon

Two young lovers
Dancing hand in hand
Why they have to part
They don’t understand

Midnight
They don’t see the coloured
Streamers shimmerin’ down
Midnight
And it’s time to say goodbye
To the wrong side of town
Midnight
And in the crowd
Two anxious faces watch the door
And there are
Tears, tears on the ballroom floor

Pale young dreamers
Hold each other close
They don’t hear the sound
They are on their own

Sad young dreamers
Hold each other near
There is no-one else
They are on their own

Midnight
They don’t see the coloured
Streamers shimmerin’ down
Midnight
And it’s time to say goodbye
To the wrong side of town
Midnight
And in the crowd
Two anxious faces watch the door
And there are
Tears, tears on the ballroom floor

As these final moments descend
Vow their love will never end

And sad young dreamers
As the music plays
Now we have to go
Separate ways

Midnight
They don’t see the coloured
Streamers shimmerin’ down
Midnight
And it’s time to say goodbye
To the wrong side of town
Midnight
And in the crowd
Two anxious faces watch the door
And there are
Tears, tears on the ballroom floor

And there are tears
Tears on the ballroom floor
Wishing they don’t have to say goodbye
Tears, tears on the ballroom floor

And there are tears
Tears on the ballroom floor
Wishing they don’t have to say goodbye
Tears, tears on the ballroom floor
