lyrics

Well our bodies are old, but the night is young
We can dance like we’re demons till the early sun
Comes up and clears us old ghosts away

I crawled out from my waste bin
Drank a pool of spilled gin
Dusted off my new suit
And brand new shoes
Suspenders too
I got things to lose

She crawled out from her own bin
Sloughed off all the old skin
Found herself a new layer
Of underwear
Made of rodent hair
And she took off running down the street

You and I, you and I will dance
Dance, dance, dance, dance,...
Like a couple of kids
Like two gorgons’ heads
Like two birds on fire
Like old ghosts in love

We met up on the pavement
Cast aside bereavement
Found rhythm in the moonlight
And danced all night
Till the growing light
Burned our eyes

You and I, you and I will dance
Dance, dance, dance, dance,...
Like a couple of kids
Like two gorgons’ heads
Like two birds on fire
Like old ghosts in love

about

Daniel Muenz Ann Arbor, Michigan

A folkie at heart, I'm drawn to simple melodies and to lyrics that tell a story. This whole thing's an experiment; I'm figuring out how to make music as I go.
