Ultravox - We Came to Dance Lyrics

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

He cracks the whip and we step in time.
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:
We came to dance
Making moves from a passion play...

We came to dance.
Waiting as the panic grips my hand
Hearing prose from high command

Like a million times before
No dignity or grace

It's the price and not the race
And someone said:
We came to dance
Making moves from a passion play...

We came to dance.
We came to dance
Making moves from a passion play

The ties that bind us just slip away.

Take what you can
They said take it while you may.
But keep in mind penalty fits the crime

And it deals no softened blow.
We came to dance
Making moves from a passion play...

We came to dance
Making moves from a passion play...

We came to dance
Making moves from a passion play...
