Indigo Girls

dancing shoes

on the wall above your bedside

saw it all as we performed our pirouette

fleshes fused

as the flicker of the candles

threw upon the wall a single silhouette

tu es dans ma coeur et dans ma tete

dancing shoes

we have loved on distant beaches

where the winter never reaches

there we fell

dying swan

on the dawn you danced before me

though your eyes were dark and stormy

i stood still

qui peut dire le faux et le re'el

dancing shoes

though the distances divide us

there's a paradise inside us

we can't lose

me and you

dance a 'pas de deux'


and i pray you never

shed your dancing shoes
