 Reflections of My Heart

I Dance for Me  ღ KKD ღ

I Dance For Me

She stands upon the stage
a radiant beauty in the spotlight
Her elegant costume barely covering
Yet it is only here she feels all is right

For it is this nite
she can be who she wishes to be
and spread her wings wide
and soar the heavens so free

The beat of her heart quickens
as the music begins and possesses her body
She feels the chains breaking free
for when she dances there is no boundary

Her body moves
as gentle as a ripple upon a lake
with burning men wishing to ride
just once in her wake

But she does not dance
for any other pleasure than her own
This nite she stands as one upon the stage
where her spirit is set free and reborn

Her dance of liberation
is like nothing else you will ever see
It's like that of a beautiful butterfly
struggling to be set free

So your Private Dancer
I'm afraid she will never be
She will be the first to say
Oh when I dance I dance for me
