about

We tried to write an upbeat & gay holiday song. (Honest!) But this is what came out: loneliness meets desperate yearning meets tango meets passion in the night. Here's wishing you some tango in your Christmas!

lyrics

TANGO ME FOR CHRISTMAS
by María Volonté & Kevin Carrel Footer

Let me know your whispers
Slip them in my ear
Offer up your heartbeats
When the hounds are drawing near

Longed for you in daydreams
Dreamed of you at night
Kiss me once on Christmas
While we're standing out of sight

Are you gonna leave me howling in this alley?
Are you gonna love me now now now now?

CHORUS:
Tango me for Christmas
When the lights are getting low
Tango me for Christmas
And do it very slow

Tango me for Christmas darling
Make the season bright
Dance me wild and take me right into the fire
Let us light up the night

Share your desperate meanings
No one else will hear
Love is like a shelter
It's a house that knows no fear

Are you gonna leave me howling in this alley?
Are you gonna love me now now now now?

Chorus:
Tango me for Christmas
When the lights are getting low
Tango me for Christmas
And do it very slow

Tango me for Christmas darling
Make the season bright
Dance me wild and take me right into the fire
Let us light up the night

Come close and hold me through the storm
'Cause I don't want to be alone

Chorus:
Tango me for Christmas
When the lights are getting low
Tango me for Christmas
And do it very slow

Tango me for Christmas darling
Make the season bright
Dance me wild and take me right into the fire
Let us light up the night
...When we turn out the light

Are you gonna leave me howling in this alley?
Are you gonna love me now now now now?
