lyrics

I met you at the counter
Our fate was written in chalk
And I didn't know what I wanted
Until I heard you talk
Until I heard you talk

You convinced me of the chapel
Where they sang that my love was pure
Then I bit into your apple
And you bit into my core
And you bit into my core

Ballerina
Why walk away
When you can pirouette
Ballerina
Fading with the sun
Your dancing silhouette

You lived upon the water
A sinking boat on the canal
Then your bed became an altar
For the most unholy vows
For the most unholy vows

Am I an unlikely suitor
You poured another glass
And you raised it to the future
Where I would be your past
Where I would be your past

Ballerina
Why walk away
When you can pirouette
Ballerina
Fading with the sun
Your dancing silhouette
Your dancing silhouette
Your dancing silhouette
