Artist/Band: Indigo Girls
Lyrics for Song: Center Stage
Lyrics for Album: Indigo Girls [1989]



laughing in a crown of jewels

numbness from a scepters wound

toss and turn, i spin and learn

"catch yourself before you burn"

a joker's dance before the king

jangling beads, and silver rings

close your eyes and bare the sound

jumping up - falling down



falling, falling, falling, falling down

look yourself in the eye before you drown



royal rebels discover you

trust? you turn there is no truth

and circle, circle, why are you scared

why a smile instead of tears

i'm gulping smoke i fade away

figures floating down to lay

i meet the joker and the thief

the king and queen but - no relief



"the king is in the counting house,

(falling, falling, falling, falling down)

counting all his money

(look yourself in the eye before you drown)

the queen is in her parlor

(falling, falling, falling, falling down)

eating bread and honey

(look yourself in the eye before you drown)



i cross myself before i die

and the leaping man, he asks me, "why?"

"well your rhythm is off" i reply

"now you must dance the dance

that you imply!"

your actions will follow you full circle round

your actions will follow you full circle round

your actions will follow you full circle round

your actions will follow you full circle round

your actions will follow you full circle round

your actions will follow you full circle round

your actions will follow you full circle round

your actions will follow you full circle round

"the higher the leap," i said

"the harder the ground!"
