lyrics

It was 17 years ago today, we heard young Lucy died
She was well known to associate with those from the other side
Well Lucy, she was an angel of mercy, divine
And angels are known for tangles with those of the other kind

It was late on the eve of New Year's Day
at a ball with gentry and wine
A handsome young man, he caught her eye
and crossed from the other side
He said, "Lady, you look like an angel,
I feel I know ya, I don't know why.
May I have this dance? I don't ask for much,
just a little of your precious time."

They danced by the light of the silvery moon, an angel and a man
That was the last time we saw them alive
They must have made other plans

It was a dance we'll always remember: so sweet, so beautiful
It somehow reminds you of the passing of your life
Funny, that that's so unusual

This is the last dance
on the last night
the last December
of your last life

So hold me close now, I want to feel your body glow
I feel it's close now, all the little stars are going out

Pale and wintered, you came in from the cold
You said you gotta live before you get too old

When you're afraid of dying, you're afraid of life
But you keep on trying and trying to keep out the light

This is the last dance
on the last night
the last December
of your last life

So hold me close now, I want to feel your body glow
I feel it's close now, the stars are going out
