lyrics

Garden rows, tinkling bells
Sparkly stones to play on
But if harm should ever come to her
Out come the nightmare guns

Our lady love, she dreams us real
And we love her right back
But if you wanna date her, we better like you
Or you’re not coming back!

In the plumbing, in the walls
Between the books and cracks
We’re the eyes that you feel watching
Just behind your back

We love our dancing lady
We’d follow her through hell
And any who annoy our love
We’ll take them there as well

She dances in the firelight
We dance within the flame
She doesn’t know we live here, too
But she somehow knows our name

Small and wiley, dark and fast
We’re legion through and through
We love our dancing lady
And you better love her, too!

The trickster bird and the wizard
Play music past midnight
Jamming with Orpheus
Past the early light

They once lived in the window box
But now in an old guitar
Gathering the traveling tales
Of their clan from near and far

Tracing back the bunny clan
The tree down to the root
And when it’s done, every song’s been sung
Orpheus passes on his lute

Hair barrets go missing
Keys just disappear
A dream once filled with color
Washes grey with darkest fear

We’re eye for eye, tooth for tooth
We’ll never be too tame
For everyone who hurts her
Is a target for our games

Come dancing with our lady
And we’ll never do you harm
And we promise not to nip your toes
If you leave a shiny charm

And so we keep our lady safe
To dance and sing each day
But keep your darker thoughts from her
Or we’ll come out to play

In the plumbing, in the walls
Between the books and cracks
We’re the eyes that you feel watching
Just behind your back

Small and wiley, dark and fast
We’re legion through and through
We love our dancing lady
And you better love her, too!
