I have been trying to find the name of the waltz song that begins, “We danced all night long, doesn’t seem long, me being close to you.
If they only knew I’m here with you taking you home ……..”
It is a nice piece of music. I have it on a disc where it is simply named as “Track 1”

Hope you can help, thanks.
