We'd drive to the river
She'd dance on the levee
Like it was her stage
My ballerina, shined in the bright lights
Of my Chevrolet
We used to laugh about that
But deep down I knew that she had

Dreams of a dancer
Spinnin' round in her head
I never asked her
And she never said
Where they would lead her
I didn't wanna know
I just held on tight
Till she let go
The music called
She had to answer
The dream of a dancer

One night on the levee
We watched the stars
Till they disappeared
Softly she swayed
To a distant song
Only she could hear
She kissed me then whispered good-bye
And I saw through the tears in her eyes

Dreams of a dancer
Spinnin' round in her head
I never asked her
And she never said
Where they would lead her
I didn't wanna know
I just held on tight
Till she let go
The music called
She had to answer
The dream of a dancer

Sometimes I go drivin' at night
Down by the river and I turn out the lights

Dreams of a dancer
Spinnin' round in her head
I never asked her
And she never said
Where they would lead her
I didn't wanna know
I just held on tight
Till she let go
The music called
She had to answer
The dream of a dancer
