Dancing Shoes and Pearls

Dancing Shoes and Pearls

No, you’re not dreaming, you’re sitting right there,
Empty as a bottle at the bottom of the stairs.
The bank account’s dry, riches to the wine,
Back-road adventures in the front of your mind.

Today and tomorrow, another for sorrow.
It’s so easy to roam, but you’re so close to home.
And you’re stuck in the middle, with the best in the world,
With your bottle, your dancing shoes, and your pearls.

Night lights and avenues call you back home,
To the corners that grab you and never leave you alone.
It’s a deep red seduction, a fresh mystery,
But when you look in the mirror, tell me, what do you see?

Today and tomorrow, another for sorrow,
It’s so easy to roam, but you’re so close to home.
And you’re stuck in the middle, with the best in the world,
With your bottle, your dancing shoes, and your pearls.

(instrumental break)

Today and tomorrow, another for sorrow,
It’s so easy to roam, but you’re so close to home.
And you’re stuck in the middle, with the best in the world,
With your bottle, your dancing shoes, and your pearls.

So, no, you’re not dreaming, you’re sitting right there,
Empty as a bottle at the bottom of the stairs.
The bank account’s dry, riches to the wine,
Back-road adventures in the front of your mind.

Today and tomorrow, another for sorrow.
It’s so easy to roam, but you’re so close to home.
And you’re stuck in the middle, with the best in the world,
With your bottle, your dancing shoes, and your pearls.

Yeah, you’re stuck in the middle, with the best in the world,
With your bottle, your dancing shoes, and your…pearls.
