Michael Sembello – Maniac (acoustic cover) by Kaiak

Just a steel town girl on a Saturday night, Lookin’ for the fight of her life, In the real time world no one sees her at all, They all say she’s crazy

Locking rhythms to the beat of her heart, Changing movement into light, She has danced into the danger zone, When the dancer becomes the dance

It can cut you like a knife, If the gift becomes the fire, On a wire between will and what will be

She’s a maniac, maniac on the floor, And she’s dancing like she’s never danced before, She’s a maniac, maniac on the floor, And she’s dancing like she’s never danced before

On the ice-blue line of insanity, Is a place most never see, It’s a hard-won place of mystery, Touch it but can’t hold it

You work all your life for that moment in time, It could come or pass you by, It’s a push-shove world but there’s always a chance, If the hunger stays the night

There’s a cold kinetic heat, Struggling, stretching for the beat, Never stopping with her head against the wind

She’s a maniac, maniac, at your love, And she’s dancing like she’s never danced before, She’s a maniac, maniac, at your love, And she’s dancing like she’s never danced before

Ooh, oh
Oh

It can cut you like a knife, If the gift becomes the fire, On a wire between will and what will be

She’s a maniac, maniac, at your love (at your love), And she’s dancing like she’s never danced before, She’s a maniac, maniac, at your love, And she’s dancing like she’s never danced before, Maniac, maniac, at your love, And she’s dancing like she’s never danced before
