Kind Of Dance (Solo Acoustic)

from by The Secret Sea



My chemicals in balance
so chemistry has healed
spent most of the hour
waiting for the pill
the moon has closed the door
to be alone
rain on the seaside
hail into the bone

you don't have to fight
there's nothing there to win
you don't have to try
to follow anything
you don't have to belong to anyone
rain on the seaside
hail into the bone

now there ain't no sound to calm you down
before you go to sleep
but hey I'll stretch the night away
to hear the trumpet's grief
as the pen-pal pauses while he's reaching out
for help behind the screen
I thoroughly know this kind of dance
it's all I've ever seen
(I've ever seen)

I've given up the fight
I'm waiting for the kill
whatever's left behind
was not remotely real
I'll meet you at the shore
and come along
rain on the seaside
hail into the bone

now time has stopped your hybrid heart
from beating for relief
and bravery prowls with beaming eyes
it's searching for the thief
in a corridor's half light a thousand miles
from any open room
I thoroughly know this kind of dance
I'll join you very soon
very soon

rest your weary mind and let me take the wheel
I'll get you home in time
I promise that I will
