When I was twenty, my mind was really out from the common sense of simplicity.
Mazy, like a complex riddle, but easy, thanks to the basic principles and high values it was driven by.
I met a girl, in that period. Beautiful, for my eyes, but more for my soul, because of her richness of hidden “things”, like wonderful soul traits and characteristics that I perceived, but she was not interested in revealing to everybody.
So I entered the labyrinth.
Now, it’s not important to describe in details this relationship, but there was a strange behavior on my side. Oh, she was perfect. So close to my ideal partner, in everything, but I messed up. At the beginning, I told myself a lot of excuses, but after some days or weeks I realized.
She was perfect, as I said, buy I acted like she was not a person but something intangible. My perfect partner, my idol, i don’t know exactly, but not like she was a simple person to know and to let her know me.
In this song, I invite her for a dance. Dancing could be a lot of things, not strictly related to sexual appealing or aesthetics, and I’ve always been attracted by the way two dancers move and share their feelings. Obviously this regards the way and why you dance.
Surely my intentions were not clear to her, and in these lyrics it is not clear why I invite her for a dance, as well.
At a first, direct and simple reading, the metaphor with a sexual intent could be clear. But, if read with a clear view of what dancing should mean, it is not. This was what I did.
I have never let her understand the deeper meaning of my request for a dance, even if only for one or two steps. She was my dreamgirl, but I was misleading and not simple as love should be.
Basically I acted like she was only “ideal”, giving the floor to any kind of interpretation, and the song ends with me realizing that I’ve only invited someone real only in my mind.
