Dance, Baby, Dance

Kick your legs higher, darling Remember, you must keep time to the tune Higher and higher your beautiful legs go, while your kohl-rimmed eyes scan the room Dance like you’ve never danced before They’re all here to see you perform This isn’t just another night at the cabaret, I’m afraid Tonight is the night you’ve…

A Beautifully Simple Masterpiece

You’re my missing puzzle piece the one I’ve been searching for all this time To my every tear, you have a smile and to every lyric I write, you hold a rhyme How is it that we fit so well together? How is it that our minds mesh so perfectly? Before I met you, I…

Dim Lights and Facades

We don’t need the dim lights anymore The secretive and seductive Saturday nights They were fun for a while, that’s true, You in your button down and me in my tights But we’ve grown tired of the monotony It’s always the same thing every week A fun night filled with mystery and passion, But also…
