I just want the chance to let that little ballerina come dance
I know it's hard to find romance
When all your dreams slipped out your hands
Oh darlin'

I just want the chance to let that little ballerina come dance
I know it's hard to find romance
When all your dreams slipped out your hands
Oh darlin'

Come the nighttime, I'm your lifeline (Such a fool to fall)
I'm a lifeline, maybe I'm a fool for love (Such a fool to fall)
I'm a lifeline, maybe I'm a fool for love (Such a fool to fall)
I'm a lifeline (For love, for love)

As soon as she walked in
We started talkin'
As if nobody else exist
With her bleach blond hair and her cold hard stare
And her lucky 13 on her wrist

And all night long, I play my song
Until she broke down in tears
Oh it's just the same, caught up in the game
Of life so homemade my dear

'Cause all I need is time
All I need is time

I just want the chance to let that little ballerina come dance
I know it's hard to find romance
When all your dreams slipped out your hands
Oh darlin'

I just want the chance to let that little ballerina come dance
I know it's hard to find romance
When all your dreams slipped out your hands
Oh darlin'

So I take her to the ocean
Love to watch her floating
Hoping that she drifts my way
All those waves drown her sorrow
She'll need me tomorrow
So what's another empty day
But all my friends, they see the end
She's been doing this for years
But I swear I know, that her heart can grow
Beyond that lonely little life that she fears

'Cause all I need is time
All I need is time

I just want the chance to let that little ballerina come dance
I know it's hard to find romance
When all your dreams slipped out your hands
Oh darlin'

You've been trying so hard
For all of your life
Never got it quite right
This I know
Oh you say you need it slow
Or you just lose control
Baby if I find the way
To take off your mind away from the cold
Just tell me that you'll go, oh

I just want the chance to let that little ballerina come dance
I know it's hard to find romance
When all your dreams slipped out your hands
Oh darlin'

I just want the chance to let that little ballerina come dance
I know it's hard to find romance
When all your dreams slipped out your hands
Oh darlin'

Come the nighttime, I'm your lifeline (Such a fool to fall)
I'm a lifeline, maybe I'm a fool for love (Such a fool to fall)
I'm a lifeline, maybe I'm a fool for love (Such a fool to fall)
I'm a lifeline (For love, for love)

Maybe I'm a fool for love (Such a fool to fall)
Maybe I'm a fool for love (Such a fool to fall)
Maybe I'm a fool for love (Such a fool to fall)
For love, for love, for love
