WALTZ
Music/Lyrics by Ian and Chad

Hello monsieur
I’ve got the door and the key to your loft on Lenoir
Where it’s notorious for the bumps in the night
Thump, ba dump, ba dump, ba dump, ba dump
They have been waiting.
They are your friends til' the end, we’re your friends til' the end
We’re not gonna harm you
Let us in for a swim
We will find a way to your heart
Thump, ba dump, ba dump, ba dump, ba dump!

The music that haunts this town
Awakens the souls as they gather around
The fire that burns their ground
Now we are one, two, three, four
You can’t stop us now
No, you can’t stop us now
No, you can't stop us!

Open your eyes
This is the start of a beautiful, beautiful, day
The weather is glorious
It’s the talk of the town
Something must be wrong around here...

It’s no surprise there’s a glow in your eyes
You’re alive now
I can die now...victorious
While the dancing goes on
You have never won
But we have overcome the endless little folds of your heart

The music that haunts this town
Awakens the souls as they gather around
The fire that burns their ground
Now we are one, two, three, four
You can’t stop us now
No, you can’t stop us now
No, you can't stop us!
