  • 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
    And dance me to the end of love

    Leonard Cohen

    A man will love you if you tell him you would rather dance with him than with Mikhail Baryshnikov, and mean it!
