And Then You're Gone by Pink Martini, 124 BPM
Intro: see optional steps below, or just wait for about 30 seconds until the first beat of music, starting count 1 on "gone."
Your first repetition is only instrumental. Clockwise rotation; start with weight on L.
NOTE: the lyrics pause briefly during the last repetition, but you will keep dancing on the beat.

*The Tags occur after the 3rd repetition (facing 9:00) and after the 6th repetition (facing 6:00).
The second Tag follows a 64-count instrumental bridge.
The music feels off phrase so it will help to count in your head for the first few times you do it.
The lyrics kick in at the start of a new repetition.
1-4Rocking chair (rock forward R, recover weight to L; rock back R, recover weight to L)
Optional ending: dance through the stomp up, facing 12:00. Do this with the three counts remaining.
1Stomp R to side, feet slightly apart
2Bring your right arm at chest height across from right to left
3Swing R arm emphatically to the right, pointing Lorenzo to the door!
Optional intro: the beats are not consistent, but don't worry—this not part of the dance, so just let it flow. The music will build to tell you when the dance is about to start, so just be sure your weight is on your left foot and you're ready for count 1. This section starts after about 8 counts of piano.

1-8Side R, behind, side, cross, side ("candles"), HOLD, back rock, recover R
