if you see lil lyrics – dave barrett

she’s a little ballerina
who can dance without s sound
in an old burned out building
in a part of old town
and there in sunlit terrace
where her shadow almost fades
she dances to the music of a
morning parade.
and though some see her
they don’t care that much
she’s a little girl who dances
with the angels touch.
lil used ta twirl for me
oh, many years on back
we’d stand upon the fire escape
and she danced upon the tracks
and there in a moonlit garden
i would talk about my scenes
lil would do her dance’n
and i would talk about my dreams
and, oh with these old heals
under me now if i ever get back
i’ll tell her this right now.
if you see lil in the moonlight
tell her i’m doing fine,
i’m all right and o.k.
if you see lil in the moonlight
tell her i am fine and i’m o.k.
when it came time for me to go
i lit another cigarette
has lil put on a show
and there i’d sit in her stairwell
and look between the blinds
and i’d go and pull her covers up
just one last time
and oh as i walked out
into the city streets
i’d look back through the window
and see lil upon her feet
well, they say that she is dancing
in a midnight hourgl*ss
with an only rose that’s there
has her supporting cast
and they say that she pours tea
for a crowd that isn’t there
lil will go on dance’n
cuz she just don’t care
and if i ever get back
it won’t be the same
cuz she’ll know i’ve been out there,
play n’ sane.
