Lyrics

When I dance I breathe again, when l dance I ease the pain
"Sweet boy you have far to go " purrs the drag queen impresario

I masquerade as Harlequin and so again the dance begins
But like Petrushka l am made of
straw, I wear the mask that Pagliacci wore

And if I rage and tear the air will madness be awaiting there
And if I break my strings will I fall, am I Pulcinella after all

Courting the light like a butterfly Coppelia
Enchanting as the mannikin she plays in this ballet
And as we dance for the toymaker Coppelius I find in mime
The voice that she had stilled and locked away
But when they bring the curtain down l am alone I am God's clown
And as we danced I saw him watching from the wings, Charlatan
The showman with a blood red rose bouquet
And you, you were won by the wooing oh so sweetly done
Cruelly cast unto the last as the cast off protege
But when they bring the curtain down I stand alone I am God's at

And now, the dance is done and the play so soon begun
"Darling you were too divine" sighs Judus from the chorus line
