The Dancer

The Dancer

See the picture in the hall
Framed in magic on the wall
Ain’t it funny how it glows
What’s on the inside no one knows
What makes this picture so inviting
To those who stand outside it
Maybe it’s the dancers
Or maybe it’s the dance
the dancer dances




Thousands will fill the gallery
Pay their price to see a dream
They can make believe for free
Two hours’ worth of fantasy
Maybe they pretend the picture’s them
Or maybe they just love to sit and blend
Maybe it’s the dancer
Or maybe it’s the dance
the dancer dances



Tonight the picture has no frame
Colours unleash and float away
To each and every one of you
Tonight the spirit brings the news
You become a part of it all
Thousands turn to one in the hall
You become the dancer
And we become the dance
the dancer dances
