Avantasia & Eric Martin – Maniac (Michael Sembello cover)

Maniac

[Tobias Sammet]
Just a steel town girl on a Saturday night
Lookin' for the fight of her life
[Eric Martin]
In the real-time world no one sees her at all
They all say she's crazy
[Tobias Sammet]
Locking rhythms to the beat of her heart
Changing movement into life
[Eric Martin]
She has danced into the danger zone
When a dancer becomes a dance

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

[Both]
She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she's dancing like she's never danced before
She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she's dancing like she's never danced before

[Tobias Sammet]
On the ice-thin line of insanity
Is a place most never see
[Eric Martin]
It's a hard-won place of mystery
Touch it, but can't hold it
[Tobias Sammet]
You work all your life for that moment in time
[Eric Martin]
It could come or pass you by
[Both]
It's a push of the world, but there's always a chance
[Tobias Sammet]
If the hunger stays the night

There's a cold connective heat
Struggling, stretching for defeat
[Eric Martin]
Never stopping with her head against the wind

[Both]
She's a maniac, maniac, I sure know
And she's dancing like she's never danced before
She's a maniac, maniac, I sure know
And she's dancing like she's never danced before

[Solo]

[Tobias Sammet]
It can cut you like a knife, if the fight becomes the fire
[Eric Martin]
On a wire between will and what will be

[Both]
She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she's dancing like she's never danced before
She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she's dancing like she's never danced before

[Tobias Sammet]
She's a..
[Both]
Maniac, maniac on the floor
And she's dancing like she's never danced before
Maniac, maniac on the floor
And she's dancing like she's never danced before
[Eric Martin]
...never before...
