lyrics

Mary's done so well to find her Romeo
Oh! in time will he his soul bare?
En avant sauté, she loves him,
Cavalier will find her some day.

Many an ethereal girl of idle reverie has wept
A million tears o'er the boy in the mirror as he pirouettes.

Mary's done so well, a prima ballerina,
Designer of worlds.
'Yond a gateway lain a meadow,
Her studio, a sylvan domain.

A rivulet curves, a bough bows, her tender arm shaping air.
Infinity variant form arabesque, he sees her...

Move through air faster than light,
Pull her soul from a void,
Flee from a tiresome plight,
Dance there unto the night.

Many an ethereal girl of idle reverie has wept
A million tears o'er the boy in the mirror as he...

Moves through air faster than light,
Pulls her soul from a void.
Flee from a tiresome plight,
Dance there unto the night.
Dance there unto the night.
