lyrics

Burning ears in a bedroom
Restless feet of a restless bridegroom
On and on and on she cries
On and on and on she cries
Bitter tears on a white dress
Make-up stains on the sheets in protest
On and on and on she cries
On and on and on she cries

We move our feet to the broken waltz
We move our feet to the broken waltz

'til the music stops and the floor drops out
'til the music stops and the floor drops out
'til the music stops, 'til the music stops
'til the music stops and the floor drops out

I am a heartless bastard
Candle wax on her favorite record
On and on and on she cries
On and on and on she cries
I am a heartless bastard
Snake-oil love in a bottle of aspirin
On and on and on she cries
On and on and on she cries

We move our feet to the broken waltz
We move our feet to the broken waltz

'til the music stops and the floor drops out
'til the music stops and the floor drops out
'til the music stops, 'til the music stops
'til the music stops and the floor drops out

I am just an animal and I am just a caged heart
If you beat me I'll always come back for more

'til the music stops and the floor drops out
'til the music stops and the floor drops out
'til the music stops, 'til the music stops
'til the music stops and the floor drops out

'til the music stops and the floor drops out
'til the music stops and the floor drops out
'til the music stops, 'til the music stops
'til the music stops and the floor drops out

I am just an animal and I am just a caged heart
If you beat me I'll always come back, I'll always come back, I'll always come back
If you beat me I'll always come back for more
