"I Love to Watch a Woman Dance " is a song written by L. J. McNally and was released in the Eagles album, Long Road out of Eden.
I love to watch a woman dance She bows her head and lifts her hands Her hips begin to circle slowly Her eyes half-closed; her face is holy She holds the whole room in trance I love to watch a woman dance Yeah, I love to watch a woman dance
She likes the slow songs of love lost They take her a million miles away 'Cause to dream, sometimes, that's the only way To go places you can't get to any other way Our eyes connect; she takes my hand I love to watch a woman dance Yeah, I love to watch a woman dance
I feel my heart beating, and I wonder Can it ever satisfy my longing? I wanna hold on to you as long as I can 'Cause, who knows, this dance may be our only dance
So we danced together, close and slow So slow we're almost standing still Her warm breath against my neck Slowly breaking down my will The room spins so I can barely stand The song ends; then, she lets go of my hand There's so much I don't understand But I love to watch a woman dance Yeah, I love to watch a woman dance
