the Ballerina in her twilight, and the illusion of becoming..

lyrics

"Dance The Lonely Spotlight"


She watches as they float across the stage
in pirouettes …
lost inside a movement that she knows that she deserves to get
if she could only get the wrinkles from her face to disappear …
they'd see the talent and the that she found from practicing for years

As the T.V goes to grey all and every curtain comes to close
she be fast asleep inside a dream of turns and jumps and pointed toes
It's a batterie of ballet dreams a coterie of memories tonight

And She Will
Dance the lonely Spotlight Tonight
Making up the music as she goes
Dance the lonely Spotlight Tonight
What the truth is darling no one really knows
We're all making up the music as we go

Every morning she wakes up and turns the coffee maker on
As it sputters and it spits in rhythm
She begins her song
sings her scales then Madame Butterfly
as she hold the balance bar
from the bookshelf to table
she's a bright new shooting star

Though the days are getting quiet and the nights are cold as hell
Every minute she goes further in becoming her Giselle
In an orchestra of make believe we sing our tragic melody tonight

And She Will
Dance the lonely Spotlight Tonight
Making up the music as she goes
Dance the lonely Spotlight Tonight
What the truth is darling no one really knows
We're all making up the music as we go

So i will hold her flashlight strong and true
As she comes floating in and flying through
For tonight her yesterdays are gone
So take my hand and take the stage where you belong

And we will
Dance the lonely Spotlight Tonight
Making up the music as we go
Dance the lonely Spotlight Tonight
What the truth is darling no one really knows
We're all making up the music as we go
