Goodbye Ballerina
They’re closing down the opera
Now the orchestra’s no more
Farewell to the dinosaur
We never went to see
And goodbye ballerina
We held you up so high
To dance you pay a price
For dance you pay a price
Goodbye ballerina
Now you are free

The letter that she sent me
Made of paper from a tree
Now it’s an emoji
Of a heart I once knew
The sound of her piano
Coming from the other room
And then the song is through
And when the song is through
Goodbye ballerina
Robot plays the blues

Old man shakes his cane
At the passing of the train
Does he miss the voices singing out of tune?
Do you miss the days
When no one knew your name,
And the nights nobody wanted to?

Now I can find another lover
Any time I wanna
I can call a butler
Or a car that I don’t drive
Goodbye ballerina
This world won’t carry you
But before the world was new
Before the world was new
Before the world was new
So good to be alive

Bye bye, bye bye
