We came to dance
Making moves from a passion play

The ties that bind us just slip away.
We came to dance
The piper calls out a different rhyme

Standing as the parade goes passing by
I hear a voice around my cry.
Like the sound of a distant drums
Rejected and alone.

A heart without a home
Then someone said:
