Intro: C C

C
We both sat there in denial
F
I was miles away
Am
You dusted off your old flats
G
And you practiced your plies

C                                  F
Blank stares across an empty vacuum of stubbornness and vanity
Am                     F
Instead of saying what you really mean
         G
You just dance away from me

F     G
I know your shadows
Am  F               Am G
I'm engrossed in silhouette
C       G                       Am F             Am G
You know just how that dance goes, my Queen of Pirouette

C                                F
Cold breezes and colder shoulders to make this night complete
Am
Do I dare drag my feet
F
Dare to sleep alone?
              G
Will you keep dancing to the beat?

F     G
I know your shadows
Am  F               Am G
I'm engrossed in silhouette
C       G                       Am F             Am G
You know just how that dance goes, my Queen of Pirouette


F        G
Yeah ay yeah
Am       G
Yeah ay yeah
F        G
Yeah ay yeah
C
Yeah ay yeah

F
I will scream it from the rooftop
G
Get this out of me
    F             G
And bellow out of key
F
I'm too tired
G                            Am   G
And now I just want to fall asleep

But you just dance away from me


F     G
I know your shadows
Am  F               Am G
I'm engrossed in silhouette
C       G                       Am F             Am G
You know just how that dance goes, my Queen of Pirouette

Ending: F C G
