lyrics

ACROBAT
(Robertson 2017)

chorus

She's an acrobat
she tumbles all the time
she has a heart that dances
to each and every line
and I wish that I could figure out
how to make her mine
but she's an acrobat
she tumbles all the time

she's made a career
out of falling down
she recovers gracefully
every time she hits the ground
she's got bells around her waist
and sawdust in her hair
it only makes her lovelier
people stop and stare

chorus

I've watched her fall so many times
she spins head over heels
she doesn't know which way is up
and I know how that feels
she runs around in circles
and dances in the light
dazzles all the audience
every single night

chorus

about

Craig Robertson Boston, Massachusetts

I live in a landscape of ghosts and scientific oddities. Memories surface like flying fish in a glassy ocean. Songwriting for me is like a spiderweb; the strangest things fly into it.
