Anne Marie, won't you dance with me? I've been standing here so long I'm getting tired Anne Marie, glory glory be All by yourself you're just itching to be admired Anne Marie, and I don't think this love of mine can get much stronger Anne Marie, won't you marry me? Hurry up, cause I can't wait one minute longer All the time I look out of the windows I see Stranger faces than I would imagine they'd be A little bit obscure, but all the same they all need what I need,And that's true,I have seen a thousand girls on sawdust summer days I have loved a million faces all in secret ways And all of them were willing to be caught within my gaze But none stays except you Oh I remember waking up to every lonely moon And as I lay there half-asleep I'd realize it's noon The mind plays tricks and I play games with everybody's mind A girl like you is what I thought that I could never find Anne Marie won't you dance with me Before the love we have gets distant and forgotten? Anne Marie you just have to be From the same soft place as lavender and cotton Anne Marie what's it gonna be? If you must say no, well then, I beg your pardon But Anne Marie, if you'll marry me Then we'll lay amongst the flowers in the garden Oh naturally you'll see me in the shadows lying low And hoping no one else will see as they pass by And as I put the flowers on your doorstep I'm depressed Because I know they'll bring a sweet tear to your eye And time has come and gone for us The songs all says there's nothing But the memory that you and I have shared But I can't help the things I wanna say to you So let me carry on this way Although it seems as though I'm only running scared Oh Anne Marie, I need to know you're there So tell me what I am to you right now Anne Marie Just another summer crush like something off TV Or is there something else that only you and I can see Please tell me, cause I know Oh Anne Marie you know you mean the whole world to me The universe, the stars, the moon, and all the eye can see So let me know you feel the same way and you want to be all that to me And let's go If it's really meant to be then I guess that you will say The things that I have longed to hear since first you came my way But if you cannot say them now, then I am fit to wait A week, a month, a year for you Forever and a day Anne Marie, won't you dance with me? Oh my poor heart just cannot handle being broken But Anne Marie if it just can't be Then I'll understand before the words are spoken Anne Marie you can plainly see What you represent to me is beyond words and Anne Marie won't you marry me? Ah, the answers yes, I know it, I'm quite certain So Anne Marie, here's our chance to be Something different, so we think, than all the others Anne Marie, this is you and me Not another pair of unenlightened lovers Anne Marie, I just know that we cannot seperate You said it, I believe ya Anne Marie, will you marry me? Oh I love you and you know I'd never leave ya...
