Reed Johnson ~ Dancing Girl

An artful piece. Love the color palette. The seated girl in the shadows.

I had a date with a pretty ballerina
Her hair so brilliant that it hurt my eyes
I asked her for this dance
And then she obliged me
Was I surprised, yeah
Was I surprised,
No not at all

I called her yesterday,
It should have been tomorrow
I could not keep
The joy that was inside
I begged for her to tell me
If she really loved me
Somewhere a mountain is moving
Afraid its moving without me

I had a date with a pretty ballerina
Her hair so brilliant that it hurt my eyes
I asked her for this dance
And then she obliged me
Was I surprised, yeah
Was I surprised, no not at all

And when I wake on a dreary sunday morning
I open up my eyes to find theres rain
And something strange within said,
Go ahead and find her
Just close your eyes, yeah
Just close your eyes and she’ll be there

She’ll be there…
