Dancing In The Dark

Tags: dancing, dark

Dancing in the dark is a whole new thing to me,
Switching person to person,
Going from A to B,
The masquerade is haunted,
Who knows what lies behind?
The faces of your close friends,
Or those of your close enemies?

The twisting and the turning,
The rising and the fall,
The darkness is in corners,
And creeping up the hall.
We dance like we don't notice,
We dance like we don't care,
Yet something in me sees you,
But cannot quite be scared.

I leave my partner to see,
What creeps along the wall,
We join and start a tango,
Dance to the thrilling beat,
We move along quite quickly,
We dance into the dark,
The closeness is increasing,
With the beating of my heart.

I feel the darkness in you,
I know you are my foe,
Yet somehow I see through that,
And dance on anyhow.

Dancing moves of beauty,
Dancing moves of lust,
Breaking rules here with you,
But feeling like I must,
Your coldness pulls me closer,
My heat melts the ice,
But why now am I feeling,
My life is risked by dice?

I never leave my friends now,
I stick close to their side,
But sometimes I still wonder,
If you dance with mask with us.
