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 woman into life
She has danced into the danger zone, when the dancer becomes the 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 built iron sanity, it's a place most never seen!
It's a hard warm place of mystery, touch it but can't hold it!
You work for your life for that moment in time, it could come or pass you by!
It's a push of the world, but there's always a chance
If the hunger stays the night!

There's a cold connective heat, struggling, stretching for defeat!
Never stoppin' with her head against the wind!

She's a Maniac, Maniac I sure know!
And she's dancin' like she's never danced before!
She's a Maniac, Maniac I sure know!
And she's dancin' like she's never danced before!

Oooh, oh!
(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 I sure know!
And she's dancin' like she's never danced before!
She's a Maniac, Maniac I sure know!
And she's dancin' like she's never danced before!

Maniac, Maniac I sure know!
And she's dancin' like she's never danced before!
(Repeats out)
