Violent Femmes I Danced Lyrics

Last updated: 04/02/2000 02:32:28 AM

I danced before I had two feet
Sang before I had a tongue.
I laughed before I had two eyes.
Loved before my heart was young.
I swam before I had two hands
and held the distance in my toes.
Before I heard the stars I knew
the wild compulsion of the rose.
I bore the fruits of many lies.
Before I came into this day.
I knew before my grave was made,
the worms eat only death away
I danced before I had two feet
