“Devil’s Dance Floor”

 

Her breath began to speak 
As she stood right in front of me 
The colour of her eyes 
Were the colour of insanity 
Crushed beneath her wave 
Like a ship, I could not reach her shore 
We’re all just dancers on the Devil’s Dance Floor

Well swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, a little more next to me 
Swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, on the Devil’s Dance Floor

Pressed against her face 
I could feel her insecurity 
Her mother’d been a drunk 
And her father was obscurity 
But nothin’ ever came 
From a life that was a simple one 
So pull yourself together girl 
And have a little fun

Well she took me by the hand 
I could see she was a fiery one 
Her legs ran all the way 
Up to heaven and past Avalon 
Tell me somethin’ girl, what it is you have in store 
She said come with me now 
On the Devil’s Dance Floor

Well swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, a little more next to me 
Swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, on the Devil’s Dance Floor
Swing a little more, on the Devil’s Dance Floor

Well swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, a little more next to me 
Swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, on the Devil’s Dance Floor

The apple now is sweet 
Oh much sweeter than it ought to be 
Another little bite 
I don’t think there is much hope for me 
The sweat beneath her brow 
Travels all the way 
An’ headin’ south 
This bleedin’ heart’s cryin’ 
Cause there’s no way out

Well swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, a little more next to me 
Swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, on the Devil’s Dance Floor

Well swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, a little more next to me 
Swing a little more, little more o’er the merry-o 
Swing a little more, on the Devil’s Dance Floor
Swing a little more, on the Devil’s Dance Floor
Swing a little more, on the Devil’s Dance Floor
