  1. BALLERINA

From the album DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR

Maximum jangle as John puts it , complete with twelve string. Some nice vocal stuff over the Em. Randy Cook on drums , really tasty.

Lyrics

BALLERINA

That dress you're almost wearing tells me that tonight's the night.
And I'm just sitting , praying , hoping you just might.

The truth comes out between the sheets,
The queen of cool gives off some heat.
A nightmare or a pleasant dream.

Ballerina , ballerina.
Just a touch of schizophrenia.
You always think the grass is greener.
Ballerina , dance with me just one more time.

You seem as cruel as Cosa Nostra on a killing night.
Your emotions are all hidden somewhere out of sight.

You danced across my open heart.
You waltzed right in , took me apart.
You never finish what you start.

[chorus]

[bridge]
You're always making changes
but not inside of you.
You're busy rearranging pieces of the truth.
But it's still crashing 'round your head.
So you just say goodbye instead.

[chorus] out
