The Barefoot Ballroom (The Story)

Sometimes I'm happy, mostly I'm not, I like to be alone a lot And I don't know how I got this way, Everything around me seems so crazy My life is a rented hotel for the poor The rooms are bare, and I'm afraid to close the door But I keep the light on in the hall And the perfume of the lover on my hands And in a twinkling we will all be changed And I'll wait for you, and I'll wait for you In a twinkling we will all be changed And I'll wait for you, I'll wait for you 'Cause they'll come barefoot, little angels, Barefoot, little angels, and take us away from here They'll come barefoot, little angels, Barefoot, little angels, and take us away from here (The scene is set and the light is on, Set, and the light is on in the barefoot ballroom The scene is set and the light is on, Set, and the light is on in the barefoot ballroom) Sometimes she comes at a quarter to two, Wearing her love like a costume She takes it off, she's barefoot, Sometimes I remember this dance, Mostly not And in a twinkling we will all be changed And I'll wait for you, and I'll wait for you In a twinkling we will all be changed And I'll wait for you, I'll wait for you 'Cause they'll come barefoot, little angels, Barefoot, little angels, and take us away from here They'll come barefoot, little angels, Barefoot, little angels, and take us away from here (The scene is set and the light is on, Set, and the light is on in the barefoot ballroom The scene is set and the light is on, Set, and the light is on in the barefoot ballroom)
