I'm getting tired of this dance

it never stops
and it's always your hand

on my back


always out of step

I'm clumsy
stepping on toes

and I hear you wince


I've always danced alone

but this time
where are my manners?

You're far too courteous


Where is this music coming from?

I've never heard it
yet my feet still move

You're my partner again?


The band is tired

is this the end?
my everything aches

but your ankle, swollen red


End it

End it all
make it stop

you're bleeding out


I'm sorry

it's my fault
don't pity me

They need you, too


Ruby floors

no more cries
is that you?

The Nocturne returns.
