Ribbon Road lyrics


Now the Dance is Over

NOW THE DANCE IS OVER

Now the dance is over
now the music's gone
the mirror ball is broken
it's lying on the floor
Time will pass you by
love and pain will cry
together we were strong
you felt like you belonged
but it's only tainted love

Now the dance is over
what is there to say
how could we recover
they've taken it away
It takes hold of your body
it takes hold of your mind
and I won't say I'm sorry
that you're so deaf and blind
it's only tainted love

It's the heartbeat that you feel
when you turn the twisted wheel
an all-nighter out there free
the whole wide world and me

Now the dance is over
there's nowhere left to go
it's hidden in the cover
it's in my northern soul

I count the teardrops falling
Oh I've been fooled before
you stand there, you're still talking
You're blocking up the door
and it's only tainted love

It's the heartbeat that you feel
when you turn the twisted wheel
an all-nighter out there free
the whole wide world and me
Still keeping in the faith
though now it's getting late
we'll dance like once before
without order and the law

Now the dance is over
now the lights are down
a loving like no other
and we all have a crown
Time will pass you by
love and pain will cry
together we are strong
together we belong

Time will pass you by
love and pain will cry
together we are strong
together we belong
it's only tainted love
only tainted love
only tainted love
it's only tainted love
