Graveyard Ballet

She moves through the crowded streets
Satin slippers on her feet
She comes every Sunday
Brings a bouquet

Slipping through the iron gate
The dying day rests in golden rays
Filing down the aisles
To the seat that is saved
With her name, for...

The Graveyard Ballet
The Graveyard Ballet
Tonight he is dancing
In the Graveyard Ballet

The Graveyard Ballet
The Graveyard Ballet
Tonight he is dancing
In the Graveyard Ballet

the chatter of a passing breeze
Falls to the hush of remembering
Now every set without him
Built of paper-mache

The night conducts a melody
A symphony stirs in the leaves
She can feel him lift her by the waist
When the shadows play

The Graveyard Ballet
The Graveyard Ballet
Tonight they are dancing
In the Graveyard Ballet

The moon drops like a spotlight
On the cemetery stage
The clouds part like a curtain for
The Graveyard Ballet

If you’re the type for listening
You can hear the crinoline sway, in

The Graveyard Ballet
The Graveyard Ballet
Tonight they are dancing
In the Graveyard Ballet

She will lay down beside him
And the kings of this cruel world

We all will share the same bed that we’ve made
We’ll all go dancing
In the Graveyard Ballet
