There used to be a girl I knew
who danced inside a circus.
I never told her the secret I knew,
that most of her tricks weren't worth it.
But that young girl, a beautiful girl,
danced the the moon, the stars, the ballet;
she saw the lights upon the earth
and left her sky for gray.
And that young girl that I once knew
could do every spin and pose,
and when the neon lights went off
she yearned for home, and rose.
Upon rising, sparkling feet
she danced upon the air
until she met a concrete wall
she didn't know was there.
Her shoes fell off, her hair fell out,
and from the sky she fell.
The world below, without the lights
became a her grayest Hell.
