Kristin Hersh – The Key lyrics

Lightning and foam make a pelican fly
Copper and snow make a dusky blue boy
Your hair looks like copper
Your eyes look the same

We dance all night
We dance all night

You don't inspire a metric ton of trust
'cause I'm on fire and so is all my stuff

And we dance all night
And we dance all night

Lightning and foam make a pelican fly
Copper and snow make a dusky blue boy
Your hair looks like copper
Your eyes look the same

We dance all night
We dance all night

If I lived in a pumpkin shell
I'd have the key
And if I had a daughter
She'd look a lot like me

And we dance all night (dance all night)
And we dance all night
And we dance all night (dance all night)
And we dance all night
And we dance all night (dance all night)
And we dance all night
And we dance all night (dance all night)
And we dance all night
And we dance all night (dance all night)
And we dance all night
And we dance all night (dance all night)
And we dance all night
And we dance all night (dance all night)
And we dance all night...
