Lyrics

[Verse 1] Just a steel town girl on a Saturday night Lookin' for the fight of her life In the real-time world no one sees her at all They all say she's crazy Locking rhythms to the beat of her heart Changing movement into light She has danced into the danger zone When the dancer becomes the dance [Pre-Chorus] It can cut you like a knife, if the gift becomes the fire On a wire between will and what will be [Chorus] She's a maniac, maniac on the floor And she's dancing like she's never danced before She's a maniac, maniac on the floor And she's dancing like she's never danced before [Verse 2] On the ice-thin little line of insanity Is a place most never see It's a hard-won place of mystery Touch it, but can't hold it You work all your life for that moment in time It could come or pass you by It's a push of the world, but there's always a chance If the hunger stays the night There's a cold connective heat Struggling, stretching for defeat Never stopping with her head against the wind [Chorus] She's a maniac, maniac, I sure know And she's dancing like she's never danced before She's a maniac, maniac, I sure know And she's dancing like she's never danced before [Solo Intermission] [Pre-Chorus] It can cut you like a knife, if the gift becomes the fire On a wire between will and what will be [Outro + Fade] She's a maniac, maniac, I sure know And she's dancing like she's never danced before
