"The Crystal Ballroom" (12-inch Mix)

Life begins with the first glance
The first kiss at the first dance
All of us are wondering why we’re here
In the crystal ballroom underneath the chandelier

Wet the glass ’til the glasses sing
We punish our hearts ’til the heart bells ring
‘Cause where we come from
We’re not always kind
The human story is what love leaves behind

We’re the ghosts of love
And we haunt this place
We’re the ghosts of love
In every face
In the ballroom of the crystal lights
Everyone’s here with me tonight
Everyone but you

Our first chance is their last dance
Our life is shaped by another’s hands
Buttoning, unbuttoning her Coco dress
Stopping and unstopping every cold caress

Born for bliss, born for this
Every human life begins with a kiss
Kissed by every kind of possibility
And everyone is here tonight with me

We’re the ghosts of love
And we haunt this place
We’re the ghosts of love
In every face
In the ballroom of the crystal lights
Everyone’s here with me tonight

Everybody’s here with me tonight
Everybody’s here with me but you
Everybody’s here with me tonight
Everybody’s here with me but you
Everybody’s here with me tonight
Everybody’s here with me but you
Everybody’s here with me tonight
Everybody’s here with me but you

Born for bliss, born for this
Every human life begins with a kiss

We’re the ghosts of love
And we haunt this place
We’re the ghosts of love
We’re the ghosts of love
And we haunt this place
We’re the ghosts of love
We’re the ghosts of love
And we haunt this place
We’re the ghosts of love
We’re the ghosts of love
And we haunt this place
We’re the ghosts of love
In every face
In the ballroom of the crystalline

Born for bliss, born for this
Every human life begins with a kiss
Born for bliss, born for this
Every human life begins with a kiss
Born for bliss, born for this
Every human life begins with a kiss

Buttoning, unbuttoning a Coco dress

Born for bliss, born for this
Every human life begins with a kiss
