  • What a night for a dance, you know I'm a dancing machine
    With the fire in my bones, and the sweet taste of kerosene
    I get lost in the light, so high don't wanna come down
    To face the loss of the good thing, that I have found

    In the dark of the night I can hear you calling my name
    With the hardest of hearts I still feel full of pain
    So I drink and I smoke and I ask you if your ever around
    Even though it was me who drove us right in the ground

    See the time we shared it was precious to me
    But all the while I was dreaming of revelry

    Gonna run baby run like a stream down a mountainside
    With the wind at my back I won't ever even bat an eye
    Just know it was you all along who had a hold of my heart
    But the demon in me was the best of friends from the start

    So the time we shared it was precious to me
    All the while I was dreaming of revelry
    Dreaming of revelry

    And I told myself for the way you go, it rained so hard it felt like snow
    Everything came tumbling down on me
    In the back of the woods in the dark of the night
    Palest of the old moonlight
    Everything just felt so incomplete

    Dreaming of revelry
    Dreaming of revelry
    Dreaming of revelry
    Dreaming of revelry
