lyrics

Bowlegged and pigeon-toed
In the grip of some do-si-do
Changing partners, changing lanes
Always headed down the same road

Unsteady on two feet
Bear witness to the strangest scenes
The mind is juggling absolutes
That fall somewhere in between

It's a parlor trick, or practical magic
A peaceful transition by force of habit
The axis is aligned, there's no need to run for cover
Binary stars, they revolve around each other

Darling, be my chandelier
I'll lay your able body here
I'll light a fire to every fuse
Until you shine from ear to ear

Now, if I was a second guess
I don't care what I came after
Just tell me: do you cry cause you're depressed?
Or is it joyous laughter / Overflowing

It's a parlor trick, or practical magic
A peaceful transition by force of habit
The axis is aligned, there's no need to run for cover
Binary stars, they revolve around each other
