Michael Sembello — Maniac lyrics

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 life
She has danced into the danger zone, when the dancer becomes a dance

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

She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she's dancin' like she's never danced before
She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she's dancin' like she's never danced before

On the ice-blue line of insanity is a place most never see
It's a hard-worn 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 door
And she's dancin' like she's never danced before
She's a maniac, maniac at your door
And she's dancin' like she's never danced before

Oooh, oh!
(Break & guitar solo)

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

She's a maniac, maniac at your door
And she's dancin' like she's never danced before
She's a maniac, maniac at your door
And she's dancin' like she's never danced before

Maniac, maniac at your door
And she's dancin' like she's never danced before
(Repeats out)
