Girl: Frank, there’s something mysterious, well something enchanting about twilight.
Frank: I think I know what you mean. It makes you feel as though you have always been a part of this.
Girl: Yes that’s right. Perhaps we are reliving the experience of some other boy and girl who have stood like this and watched the night coming.
Frank sings:
Dancing in the dark, till the tune ends, we’re dancing in the dark,
And it soon ends, we’re waltzing in the wonder of why we’re here,
Time hurries by, we’re here and gone.
Looking for the light of a new love to brighten up the night,
I have you, love, and we can face the music together,
Dancing in the dark.
(What – though love is old, what – though song is old)
(Through them we can be young)
(Hear this heart of mine wailin’ all the time)
(Dear one, tell me that we’re one.)
(musical interlude)
Looking for the light of a new love, to brighten up the night,
I have you, love, and we can face the music together,
Dancing in the dark, ((with you)).
