Intro: C5 C5

C5
We both sat there in denial
F5
I was miles away
A5
You dusted off your old flats
G5
And you practiced your plies

C5                                  F5
Blank stares across an empty vacuum of stubbornness and vanity
A5                     F5
Instead of saying what you really mean
         G5
You just dance away from me

F5     G5
I know your shadows
A5  F5               A5 G5
I'm engrossed in silhouette
C5       G5                       A5 F5             A5 G5
You know just how that dance goes, my Queen of Pirouette

C5                                F5
Cold breezes and colder shoulders to make this night complete
A5
Do I dare drag my feet
F5
Dare to sleep alone?
              G5
Will you keep dancing to the beat?

F5     G5
I know your shadows
A5  F5               A5 G5
I'm engrossed in silhouette
C5       G5                       A5 F5             A5 G5
You know just how that dance goes, my Queen of Pirouette


F5        G5
Yeah ay yeah
A5       G5
Yeah ay yeah
F5        G5
Yeah ay yeah
C5
Yeah ay yeah

F5
I will scream it from the rooftop
G5
Get this out of me
    F5             G5
And bellow out of key
F5
I'm too tired
G5                            A5   G5
And now I just want to fall asleep

But you just dance away from me


F5     G5
I know your shadows
A5  F5               A5 G5
I'm engrossed in silhouette
C5       G5                       A5 F5             A5 G5
You know just how that dance goes, my Queen of Pirouette
