Two Left Feet


Teach me how to dance for I have two left feet
I didn’t catch that last step so would you please repeat?
I know in my head what moves I must make
Yet everytime the music starts, I keep making a mistake

I’m trying my best but I just can’t get it right,
Maybe I’m just not fit for this kind of spotlight,
Envy invades me as I watch them sway and leap
Tempting me to just turn my head and leave

Yet a little voice in my head tells me not to quit
Just keep practicing, that ought to do the trick
Is that all you got? Are you really giving up?
It’s okay to get tired and hit pause but never stop.

If you need help then don’t be afraid to ask,
Pick someone to teach you, one that you can trust,
Let your heart listen to all the beats and the rhythm
Erase all your worries and let yourself learn.

      Me too.. I’m not a good singer but I’d rather sing in front of a thousand people than shake my hips even for just a few people
