Wedding Song: Let’s Dance

David Bowie is ALWAYS a good choice for a first dance song, especially “Heroes” (one of our personal favorites for a unique wedding song).

Another one of favorite Bowie songs is “Let’s Dance,” but it’s a little too uptempo for my taste when it comes to your first dance. However, M. Ward’s cover of the song from 2009 is absolutely PERFECT. Take a listen to it, below. It’s stunningly beautiful.

And here are the full lyrics to “Let’s Dance.”

Let’s dance
Put on your red shoes and dance the blues
Let’s dance
To the song they’re playin’ on the radio
Let’s sway
While color lights up your face
Let’s sway
Sway through the crowd to an empty space

If you say run
I’ll run with you
And if you say hide
We’ll hide
Because my love for you
Would break my heart in two
If you should fall into my arms
And tremble like a flower

Let’s dance
Let’s dance
For fear your grace should fall
Let’s dance
For fear tonight is all
Let’s sway
You could look into my eyes
Let’s sway
Under the moonlight, this serious moonlight

And if you say run
I’ll run with you
And if you say hide
We’ll hide
Because my love for you
Would break my heart in two
If you should fall into my arms
And tremble like a flower

Let’s dance
Put on your red shoes and dance the blues
Let’s sway
Under the moonlight, this serious moonlight
Let’s dance
Let’s dance
Let’s dance, dance, dance
