Signorina Ballerina

So many ways to go, so much you want to know

And you’ll find a way, yes you’ll find your way

Cause you’re always on the move, and you’ve always got a groove

Your style, such style on display

 

Took a trip across the sea to see another way to be

Get some time away, yes some time away

But the weeks went fast and the summer didn’t last

And you couldn’t stay, no you could not stay

 

Signorina Ballerina don’t know where to start

Too long since we’ve seen you, you’re still in our hearts

But they haven’t been the same

Since the day we watched you part oh no

 

You weren’t the one that we expected but the one we came to know

And the way that we connected deep in the soul

Oh we’d try to protect it but by summer’s end oh no

Signorina Ballerina we had to let you go

 

So much heat and so much haze but we were dancing through the days

Like they’d never end, like they’d never end

And each night so long as we wrote our summer song

We need it back again, need you back again

 

Signorina Ballerina don’t know where to start

Too long since we’ve seen you, you’re still in our hearts

But they haven’t been the same

Since the day we watched you part oh no

 

You weren’t the one that we expected but the one we came to know

And the way that we connected deep in the soul

Oh we’d try to protect it but by summer’s end oh no

Signorina Ballerina we had to let you go

 

Remember the way that we danced in the heat

And the song of the summer, how you made it complete

Help us find it again, the rhythm, the beat of our hearts

 

Remember the way that we danced in the heat

And the song of the summer, how you made it complete

Help us find it again, the rhythm, the beat of our hearts

 

Signorina Ballerina don’t know where to start

Too long since we’ve seen you, you’re still in our hearts

But they haven’t been the same

Since the day we watched you part oh no

 

You weren’t the one that we expected but the one we came to know

And the way that we connected deep in the soul

Oh we’d try to protect it but by summer’s end oh no
