about

words and music by Reika Hunt

lyrics

20 hours of practice never is enough for this game
There's always something more
Something more to be unsatisfied with getting in the way
She knows it's a dance, she knows it's a short life on stage
Raspberry lips, unbelievable sky-high kicks
Ballerina Meena Jane

Eating less, using more, come what may
She may need a hero come preserve her from her coach
Always telling her, "Don't mess up that plie"
Muscles hard as walnuts, makeup thick as paint on that face
Of porcelain skin, the grace of which, now where do I begin?
Prima donna on her way

It's a messed up kind of fate
A messed up kind of love affair you're in today
'Cause you gave her your heart, she gave hers to a classic art
Ballerina, come my way
Ballerina Meena Jane
