Dance with me
Come on a take a chance with me
You cannot shift your glance from me
Enraptured as I wax and wane
The shadows darken and at midnight’s stroke
We’ll cast our spell upon the shanty folk
We’ll cover factory town in dusky smoke
A mix of sin and boiling cane.
And all along the street the night portends
Your truer nature and when nightfall ends
We’ll see who crawls out from the cane.
Don’t blame me
The moonlight’s glow reveals your destiny
The darker conflict you cannot foresee
Erupts into a passion play.
Hounds will bay
Midnight’s creatures come out and play
Owls see what humankind ignores
If the truth you cannot abide
As trouble laps these swampy shores.
