He Gets Gone

© 2016 Pierce Turner from the album Love Can’t Always Be Articulate
Covered in grease and oily overalls all week long
Monday to Friday his hands get worked to the bone
But all that subsides
On Saturday night
When he gets to dance with the love of his life
He rocks from side to side
Smiling so wide and bright
And singing along
He gets gone
Truly gone
Singing along with a voice so strong
He gets gone, gone
Truly gone
Floating on air at the Palm Springs Ballroom

People think he’s tough
He seldom smiles
Keeps his feet on the ground
Up before the morning sun
And back after it’s been and gone
But when he arrives
On Saturday night
And gets to dance with the love of his life
He rocks from side to side
Smiling so wide and bright
And singing along
He gets gone
Truly gone, singing along with a voice so strong
He gets gone, gone
Truly gone
Floating on air at the Palm Springs Ballroom

But all that subsides
On Saturday night
When he gets to dance with the love of his life
He rocks from side to side
Smiling so wide and bright
And singing along
He gets gone
Truly gone
Singing along with a voice so strong
He gets gone, gone
Truly gone
Floating on air at the Palm Springs Ballroom
Floating on air
