The Swanlake

Somewhere there is always evil
in a fairytale’s storyline.
but when darkworld is arising,
it is light we all must find.

On the top of her performance,
you always hear the people breath.
And sometimes in their own emotions,
they will also drop a tear.

When you hear this part of music,
once composed, today all known.
Odette that dances Tsjaïkovski’s story,
as swan will die, for love that’s shown.
