I met a lady dancer trippin' down the beach
On the tips of her toes
Silver ring inside her nose
Rose-colored glasses on her eyes
Thought I might have been fooled by a trick of the light

We played a little game where we
Counted all the homeless in Beverly Hills
All the times we had to get by on pills
All the times we made it when we thought we might
All the times we were fooled by a trick of the light

Do you know what you feel?
Are you feeling alright?
Do you know what you see?
Or do you got the blues with your head unscrewed
Are you permanently fooled
By a trick of the light

She wasn't in it for love, she wasn't in it for profit
She danced with the skeletons in my closet
One by one they fade away
Are they dancing out of sight?
Or am I fooled by a trick of the light?

So, are you turning me out?
Are you turning me in?
Am I floating in space?
Time, to make up your mind
To make up your world
Like you make up your face

And when she went away
She took a part of me like a souvenir
All the pain and all the fear
How to tell the difference from the night
And when I'm fooled by a trick of the light
