​Dances When

This song is by Awesome New Republic and appears on the album Rational Geographic Vol. I (2009).

Open up the floor.
There's a venom on the breath of every beat.
'Cause she only dances when she feels the dirt get in between her feet.

Take her through the door.
To the alleyway where hustlers compete.
'Cause she only dances when the one she's with could take over the street.

Now watch her go.

Shoulder on the back of her frame
That's what you love.
Try not to react as she reaches for it.
It's harder to explain why you'd hurt the one you love.
Easy on yourself, but you can't ignore it.

Stifled by the heat
You react by leaving flowers on the street.
'Cause she only dances when the asking is a price you couldn't beat.

So open up the floor
As the band sets up to take another break.
'Cause she only dances when there's something in the cabinet to take.

Now watch her go.

Stubborn like a mule or a fast republican.
Still she's worth the time of your every minute.
Think you're in the lead, till she rubs up next to him.
Takes you up to speed that you'll never win it.

Better be sure. (x4)
