Ballerina

(Susan Lowery)
Ballerina, that’s a title that you’ve won.
Dear Palestrina, like a sacred song, with God you act as one.
Oh lady dancer, your fortress strong will chase away the cold.
Sweet romancer, no one nears your illuminated soul.
Don’t try changing, soon you’ll sweep the stars.
Oh ballerina, you’re the passion of the wildest child’s dream.

You’re lookin’ for love, but sometimes it’s so slow.
They don’t understand, can’t let it show, no, no, no.
You’re lookin’ for love, but it won’t hold.
You’re burnin’ inside, to let it go, oh, ballerina……..

Oh ballerina, leap, fly ballerina, my dear ballerina,
you’re the passion of the wildest child’s dream.

Lonely caged spirit, your time has now come, take your chances –
an obsession now is won. So fierce a desire, leggings with no seam.
Oh ballerina, you’re the passion of the wildest child’s dream.

Oh ballerina, jete’ ballerina, leap, spin ballerina, you’re the passion of the wildest child’s dream. Oh ballerina, leap, fly ballerina, my dear ballerina, you’re the passion of the wildest child’s dream.
