in my opinion, I think it's about a guy who's miserable because he likes/loves a girl that just keeps falling through his fingers, and her dancing represents her playing hard to get. As she finally becomes real, and perhaps in a way says to him, 'I'm ready to be with you now', it's apparent he's grown tired of the games, and walks away.
I could be completely off the mark, but that's just how I interpret it when I see it.

The two were married but the woman died and now the man is very depressed as he constantly thinks about her1

I think there are many ways to interpret this.
My initial thoughts were that maybe the woman was someone who had died, and the memory of her kept lingering in his head. But as time goes on, the guy is letting go, growing tired of remembering her, until he lets go of her completely.
The woman playing hard to get could also be an interpretation.
Another interpretation could be that he keeps fantasizing about a girl, but once he musters up the courage to actually get to know her, the image he had of her was not enough and the real her was a disappointment. So he then leaves because the expectations weren't met, hurting her in the process because she was really into him.2
