"Le Ballet D'Or" as written by Millard Powers, David Bryson, David Immergluck, James Bogios, Charles Gillingham, Daniel Vickrey and Adam Duritz....
Wasted time running scared, when all of love needs is to be believed in
All those springs come and gone,
Passed like trains and box cars, leaving
But I would be lying if I didn't tell you the truth
They will leave you, they will leave you

So come now, let's go dance to the siren's song
Come now, leave your damage behind and gone
Some are lost to you,

Wasted time running scared all I need is to believe in
Something like a summer and I know you need somebody just like I do
And all of these foxes go down in there barrel to hide
They will leave you, they will leave you behind

So come now, let's go dance to the siren's song
Come now, leave damage behind and gone
So come now, let's go down to the dance floor
Come now, lose your mind at Le Ballet Do'r
Some are lost, some are leaving, some are lost, some are leaving
But I'm not gone at all, I'm not going anywhere at all
Some are lost to you,
Wasted time running scared now autumns fire is ashes on the breeze
And it spends away like dust on pearls as winter comes to usher in the evening
All of these drummers go stand on the hillside alone
They will leave you, they will leave you at home

So come home now, lets go dance to the siren's song
Come now, leave your damage behind and gone
So come now, let's go down to eh dance floor
Come now, loose your mind at Le Ballet Do'r
So come now, Come now, let's get out while the getting's good
Just come now, there's no one left in the neighborhood

    General CommentActually, they were wrong, but I changed them to the correct ones.

    It is a nice a song, though I listened to it too much and now it's kinda meh, but nonetheless, still pretty good. Nothing I would immediately turn on. Maybe on Saturdays.

    General CommentWhat's really fantastic about this song is everytime Duritz yells "they will leave you" all I hear is "I won't leave you" and I think that is so brilliant to be able for an artist to be saying one thing and allow listeners to hear something else.
    I love this song.

    General CommentDon't know what this song is about but I like what it says in the album sleeve about who plays what instruments and when it gets to someone near the end it says "and climbing inside a grand piano and playing it like a harp, whatever that is called, because he did that at the end of Ballet D'or"

    Song MeaningIn an early 2008 live performance, Duritz explained the meaning of the song[1]:

    “ This is about looking back at your life and realizing, if I just had done things a little differently, this could all have been a lot different. As the song starts off “Wasted time running scared when all love needs is to be believed in.” Which is an obvious thing to say, but not a simple thing to do.
    And he goes through the seasons in the song, it’s kind of a companion song to Omaha in a way, that he’s looking at his life these different ways and he’s looking at all the places where it didn’t have to go as wrong as it did. It’s just that if I had been able to see things a little differently, I could’ve done things a little differently. And he kind of comes to the conclusion that I’ve got to stop being the way I’ve been and do something different.
