baby your moves cut through the gloom
of this macabre parade of souls
apportioning those eyes discretely
heaven sent them down to earth to scold

those boys that look at you do so coldly
you siphoned off their sweaty, huffing grace
and I bet that they regret ever coming out tonight
to lose their cool, when they find out I'm yours

dance secret, elegance manoeuvred
attitude's frightening in here
dance secret, expertise removal
of breath from my lungs

that shuffle of your lip
my longing slips out in quip after quip
exasperated puns delight you

those pupils
are the gateway to the infinite
and I'm happy to forever drink them in

dance secret, elegance manoeuvred
attitude's frightening in here
dance secret, expertise removal
of breath from my lungs

dance secret, semiotic tomb
clandestine architect of doom
dance secret, spark renewed
and flits in and out of the back room
