Black ballerina
Dancing on a darkened stage
To a march for strings in a minor key
Black ballerina
Dress flowing like the waves
Of a stormy night on an inky sea
And the audience can't turn away from the girl in the black dress
Doing pirouettes to a wartime theme

Black ballerina
Dancing under red stage lights
Like a scene of hell where she's your escape
Black ballerina
Like a raven taking flight
And you feel so good but you don't feel safe
And everyone who sees her falls in love under her spell
Like a silent siren in a lustful scene

Black ballerina
She confuses every sense
Until she creates a new reality
Black ballerina
Every movement makes them tense
And there with her is where they want to be
But they don't know she's going to be undressed tonight
By the only man she would ever dream
