Cosmic Dancer Lyrics

I was dancing when I was twelve
I was dancing when I was aaah
I danced myself right out the womb
Is it strange to dance so soon
I danced myself right out the womb
I was dancing when I was eight
Is it strange to dance so late
I danced myself into the tomb
Is it strange to dance so soon
I danced myself into the tomb
Is it wrong to understand
The fear that dwells inside a man
What's it like to be a loon
I liken it to a balloon
I danced myself out of the womb
Is it strange to dance so soon
I danced myself into the tomb
But when again once more
I danced myself out of the womb
Is it strange to dance so soon
I danced myself out of the womb

one of the most beautiful songs ever written

An error occured.

On the Acoustic Warrior album, Marc says, "This is a song about reincarnation" before playing Cosmic Dancer.

An error occured.

First off, just12: Marc Bolan did not die from "an OD of the quintessential disco drug," he died as a passenger in a car his girlfriend accidentally drove into a tree. Yes, he was involved with drugs for a time, but was actually clean and coming back at the time of his death. (look at any Bolan fan site).

Anyway, I love this song, even before I knew it was about reincarnation (according to Marc), but that makes me like it even more. To me, the song is about living your life fully, from birth to death, and then some--to recognize that death isn't the end of life, just a small part in the tapestry of a cosmic dance.

How can no one comment on T Rex ? One of the greatest bands there ever was and no one says anything about them. Urgh. Sums up Britain. We'd rather listen to "Crazy Frog".

An error occured.

This is one of my favorite T.Rex songs. It is definately not about the car accident thing. Marc died in a car accident while his wife was driving but she survived. I don't think his kid was in the car and Rolan Bolan is very much alive.

The mood of the song is so strange and the idea of dancing from the womb to the tomb is perfect Bolan. That carefree perfect expression in dancing.

The Cosmic Dancer is Shiva from the Hindu religion, representing the act of creation and destruction so I am guessing that this song is about Bolan as an artist or poet, a sort of song about destiny. I know he used to call himself the Bolan Child and thought he was destined to become something big.

To me it's about enjoying something so much that you give it your all and refuse to let go.
