And The Dance Goes On
UK

Its no shot in the dark
And no trick of the lights
You tease me, adore me
Talkin' dirty, sitting pretty
Lay me down and annoint my wounds
{dust up, bust up} lets get down to the nitty-gritty

You call on favors promised and sworn
Changing names and changing places
The blade digs deep
And the cut begins to sting
There's more to this than reason
Or the old familiar river man rhyme
Take me shame me lead me
To the floor in {heylets swing}

(chorus)
And the dance goes on
And the dance goes on and on
And the dance goes on
And the dance goes on and on and on and on

We're going up in flames
We're burning up in a blaze of glory
Don't put fire into the hands
Of the weak and faint, the weak and frail
Dripping the life fantastic
Let's celebrate our great escape
For goodness sake, its all the same
The sinner and saint, heaven and hell

(chorus)

(repeat last verse)
