Van Morrison – Ballerina lyrics

Spread your wings
Come on fly awhile
Straight to my arms
Little angel child
You know you only
Lonely twenty-two story block
And if somebody, not just anybody
Wanted to get close to you
For instance, me, baby
All you gotta do
Is ring a bell
Step right up, step right up
And step right up
Ballerina
Crowd will catch you
Fly it, sigh it, try it
Well, I may be wrong
But something deep in my heart tells me I'm right and I don't think so
You know I saw the writing on the wall
When you came up to me
Child, you were heading for a fall
But if it gets to you
And you feel like you just can't go on
All you gotta do
Is ring a bell
Step right up, and step right up
And step right up
Just like a ballerina
Stepping lightly
Alright, well its getting late
Yes it is, yes it is
And this time I forget to slip into your slumber
The light is on the left side of your head
And I'm standing in your doorway
And I'm mumbling and I can't remember the last thing that ran through my head
Here come the man and he say, he say the show must go on
So all you gotta do
Is ring the bell
And step right up, and step right up
And step right up
Just like a ballerina, yeah, yeah
Crowd will catch you
Fly it, sight it, cmon, die it, yeah
Just like a ballerina
Just like a just like a just like a ballerina
Get on up, get on up, keep a-moving on, little bit higher, baby
You know, you know, you know, get up baby
Alright, a-keep on, a-keep on, a-keep on, a-keep on pushing
Stepping lightly
Just like a ballerina
Ooo-we baby, take off your shoes
Working on
Just like a ballerina

    Van at his very best.
    This song is off side 2(Side 1 was labeled "in the beginning", Side 2 "the end") of Astral Weeks, a concept album that describes the arc of a near-divine love affair. This song is about a man asking his woman to take him back, but more impportantly, he is asking her to risk for the chance at love. He is there, waiting for her.
    He starts off slyly asking her, "If someone, not just anyone, wanted to get close to you... for instance, me, baby?". But then he talks about the confusion of love, how his head and heart disagree about her. "I may be wrong, but something deep in my heart tells me I'm right...and I dont think so. I see the writing on the wall" We are drawn even deeper at the end when he is "standing at her doorway, mumbling"- so he cannot talk, but the song is inside him.
    This is not a song about Love, but one about Being in Love.
