When the Music Played Lyrics

I was young, I was poor. Life was harsh and unsure
But a father's girl can't complain
And my fate changed by chance With an innocent dance
With a man who was older and richer and bolder
A man with a taste for champagne
and girls like me, too blinded to see

But when the music played the world would fade away
And I'll sail 'cross the floor, caring less, wanting more
When the music played somehow my soul obeyed
Heaven would be whispering my name when the music played

So I gave and he took, with a word, with a look
I was captured inside of his game
There I was still a girl in the devil's own world
But a girl who was older and wiser and colder
A girl who felt hunger and shame
Yes I served like a slave things I'll take to my grave

But when the music played the world would fade away
And I'll sail 'cross the floor, caring less, wanting more
When the music played somehow my soul obeyed
Heaven only knows what I became when the music played

And I hated him and I wanted him, and I met with him more than I should
And it frightened me how he hold me like he owned me
I said stay away, but he wouldn't. Oh god stay away, but I couldn't
I had to end it, I had to live. Can you forgive me?
Put the pain aside, put the past away
Look into my eyes

And let the music play, yesterdays fade away
To a world we restore, wanting less caring more
Let the music play, for who we are today
Let me hear you whispering my name when the music play
