Annie, I Owe You a Dance

I was running late again
Picking up a few things
And there you were on aisle 13
I felt that old rush
When you saw me you blushed
Like you did when you were sweet 16

They said you looked lost on the dance floor
With a lonely look in your eyes
Don't know why I didn't show
To this day I still don't know
For once I wish I hadn?t thought twice

Then your folks split up
And you moved to colorado
And I headed out to tennessee
Heard you got married
And you moved back home
Here we are again you and me

It's no surprise the light in your little girl's eyes
Shines like the ring on your hand
Annie, I owe you a dance

Don't the years fly by
In the blink of an eye
Yeah loves I had a few
I've been in a million places
And I've seen a million faces
But I couldn't stop thinking about you

Remember how we talked for hours
Keeping each others secrets
Made a promise I'd take you to homecoming
But annie I didn't keep it
Almost called you up
When I played in boulder
But I thought I?d just let it be
Heard you found yourself a real good man
Do you ever think of you and me?

It's no surprise the light in your little girl's eyes
Shines like the ring on your hand
Annie, I owe you a dance

So put your groceries in the basket
I'm so sorry now I'm asking
Like I should have 20 years ago
And I know it's all over
I'm just looking for some closure
And there's a song on the radio
You give me your hand
And we start to dance
The cashier gives us a smile
As you turn and walk away
I hear your little girl say
?Mama who was that guy??
Shouldn?t be surprised
The forgiveness in your eyes
Gave me a second chance
Annie, thanks for the dance
