The saxophone played
And music overflowed
Spilling across the floor
Quickly grabbed a cup
Trying to catch every note
But the rhythm was slippery
And I drowned in the song
The harmony saturated my bloodstream
And my heart beat to the band
Thumping in my chest
And my only escape was to dance
Allowing my feet
To stomp and thunder against the floor
My body shook with the music
Pulling me further under
Until I was lost for the night
