She dances on ivories To a small bar dreams came to die Closing her eyes as each digit sweeps Becoming sound as fast as her fingers fly. Hoping her music will set her free From a town she lingered too long. She plays them the song she's felt In every bone, letting the piano tell The words she's too afraid to say.
She dances on ivories Live on a stage with attention of many Looking for familiar faces but doesn't see any. Her music takes her places far and wide Everything she wanted, still it doesn't feel right. Adored by her fans in a personal spotlight, Loved for her sound, shaking countless hands Thousands fill the stands as she's grown With each show, she feels more alone.
She dances on ivories For her family listening to her play, Telling her children if they try to be, They can be anything if they practice everyday. "But listen, no matter how much you grow Don't ever forget this is your home."
