Lyrics

dance for me. dance for me. dance for me…. dance for me, darla
dance for me. dance for me. dance for me…. dance for me, now

we may not be here too long
we may not be here too long

the ticket taker’s smile is as wide as the aisle
but I can’t say for sure that he’s breathing
now you’ve come all this way / to perform in this play
and the curtains are tattered and bleeding

trade your heart for a song
take this heart for a song

the trombone comes in late / he leans hard on the eight
while he’s draining the spit from his horn
the lights have come down on the pig and the clown
and the air smells like livestock and popcorn

trade your heart for a song
trade your heart for a song

la… la… la… la…

it was under duress that the usher confessed
to leaving his station unguarded
but you captured the room when you brought out that spoon
and decorum and taste soon departed

take this heart for a song
take this heart for a song

I can see by your face / that you’re bored with this place
and you’re bored with your tiny companion
but you stand there so cute in your powder blue suit
who could blame you for putting the tease on

take this heart for a song
take this heart for a stone

dance for me. dance for me. dance for me... dance for me, darla
dance for me. dance for me. dance for me... dance for me, now

we may not be here too long
we may not be here too long

la… la… la… la…
