We both sat there in denial
I was miles away
You dusted off your old flats
And you practiced your plies

Blank stares across an empty vacuum of stubbornness and vanity
Instead of saying what you really mean
You just dance away from me

I know your shadows
I'm engrossed in silhouette
You know just how that dance goes, my Queen of Pirouette

Cold breezes and colder shoulders to make this night complete
Do I dare drag my feet
Dare to sleep alone?
Will you keep dancing to the beat?

I know your shadows
I'm engrossed in silhouette
You know just how that dance goes, my Queen of Pirouette

I will scream it from the rooftop
Get this out of me
And bellow out of key
I'm too tired
And now I just want to fall asleep
But you just dance away from me

I know your shadows
I'm engrossed in silhouette
You know just how that dance goes, my Queen of Pirouette
