Maniac Lyrics by Michael Sembello


Michael Sembello Lyrics

Maniac Lyrics
Just a small town girl
On a Saturday night
Looking 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

It can cut you like a knife
If the gift becomes the fire
On the wire between will
And what will be

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

On the ice blue 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, shove world
But there's always a chance
If the hunger stays the night

There's a cold kinetic heat
Struggling, stretching for the peak
Never stopping with her head against the wind

She's a maniac, maniac
I sure know
Like she's never danced before
She's a maniac, maniac
I sure know
And she's dancing
Like she's never danced before

[Instrumental Interlude]

It can cut you like a knife
If the gift becomes the fire
On the wire between will
And what will be

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
Maniac, maniac
I sure know
And she's dancing
Like she's never danced before
