Ballerina Spirit

Description
Dreamy song about a girly-girl, I guess. My granddaughter, partly, but also just the spirit of girl-hood. (Do you think it's too long?)

Lyrics
She came to me in silence like an angel’s gentle smile
Like a symphony in slow motion
And she hovered there forever – maybe just a little while
Like the vapors from a strong potion

And I felt a little dizzy, and I felt a little warm
Like emotional intoxication
Everything was stillness like the calm before a storm
Was it all in my imagination?

CHORUS:
Dancin’ on the water, dancing in the wind, dancing in the glowing embers
Dancing in the moonlight, dancing in the rain, am I the only one that remembers?

When I came back to the living, when I floated back to earth
With a feelin’ that was oh so pleasin’
I could not forget the beauty. I can’t tell you what it’s worth
And I smile for no apparent reason

CHORUS:
Dancin’ on the water, dancing in the wind, dancing in the glowing embers
Dancing in the moonlight, dancing in the rain, am I the only one that remembers?

BRIDGE:
Ballerina Spirit – elusive as a mist
Ballerina Spirit – just a glance, just a glance
Ballerina Spirit – heaven must have kissed
Ballerina Spirit is the dance.

CHORUS:
Dancin’ on the water, dancing in the wind, dancing in the glowing embers
Dancing in the moonlight, dancing in the rain, am I the only one that remembers?

Nice tune
Doesn't seem to me to be too long, maybe because it's pretty and well done. But if you were thinking of cutting it somewhere I think I would leave out the second chorus and go right into the bridge from the verse, because it would have a nice movement harmonically, I think. I think after the last chorus you could fade out on that arpeggio so that it implies the dance goes on and on. Top notch as it is, but since you asked, that's my best guess...

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
