She was a dancer
she had the fleetest feet
She couldn't help it
Her feet were all to fleet

And she was getting somewhere
and she was going fast
And she was telling someone
that she knew it couldn't last

And she'd tell you something once
and not again
You were her only friend
You were her next of kin

And when she spoke up
she'd say the strangest things
She saw the future
and what tomorrow brings

And things keep moving forward
and things are going fast
And she is dancing somewhere
and she keeps spinning toward the past

And she told you something once
and not again
You were her only friend
You were her next of kin

She went and gave up the rest of her life
for one good waltz and a walk toward the light.

And when you looked up
with your beleaguered face
you couldn't know that
she always wins the race

And she is moving forward
and she is going fast
And she is getting nowhere
as she keeps spinning toward the past

And she'll tell you something once
and not again
You were her only friend
You were her next of kin

I will remember the rest of my life
I was her daughter and
time was her wife

She was a dancer
she had the fleetest feet
She couldn't help it
Her feet were all too fleet
