Pretty Ballerina (The Left Banke)

I had a date with a pretty ballerina Her hair so brilliant that it hurt my eyes I asked her for this dance and then she obliged me Was I surprised? Yeah Was I surprised? No not at all I called her yesterday it should have been tomorrow I could not keep the joy that was inside I begged for her to tell me if she really loved me Somewhere a mountain is moving Afraid it's moving without me I had a date with a pretty ballerina Her hair so brilliant that it hurt my eyes I asked her for this dance and then she obliged me Was I surprised? Yeah Was I surprised? No not at all And when I wake on a dreary Sunday morning I open up my eyes to find there's rain And something strange within says "Go ahead and find her, just close your eyes, yeah Just close your eyes and she'll be there" She'll be there, she'll be there
