    Sweet is the melody, so hard to come by
    It's so hard to make every note bend just right
    You lay down the hours and leave not one trace
    But a tune for the dancing is there in it's place
    Well, the dance floor's for gliding and not jumping over ponies

    And you know the sun's settin' fast,
    And just like they say, nothing good ever lasts.
    Well, go on now and kiss it goodbye,
    But hold on to your lover,
    'Cause your heart's bound to die.

    Everybody's wonderin' what and where
    They all came from
    Everybody's worryin' 'bout where they're gonna go
    When the whole thing's done
    But no one knows for certain and so it's all the same to me
    Let the Mystery Be  -  39,779 plays
    Well, you told me that you wished that things had not,
    Turned out this way.
    You never thought there'd come a time,
    When you would go away.
    But you stayed right here beside me,
    You've Done Nothing Wrong  -  29,874 plays
    Well, I looked up into heaven, I thought I'd solve life's mysteries.
    I observed the constellations for a clue to my destiny.
    But the rhyme of life confounds me, things will be as things will be.
    So I'll just dance the shores of Jordan 'til the angels carry me.
    I'm gonna let my feet go dancing to my very favourite songs,
