Michael Sembello - Maniac (Album Version; Re-Recorded, Remastered). It can cut you like a knife, if the gift becomes the fire On a wire between will and what will be. 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. On the ice-build iron sanity is a place most never see It's a hard warm place of mystery, touch it, but can't hold it You work all your life for that moment in time, it could come or pass you by It's a push of the world, but there's always a chance If the hunger stays the night.

Produced by Phil Ramone. Album Bossa Nova Hotel. Just a steel town girl on a Saturday night Lookin' for the fight of her life In the real-time world no one sees her at all They all say she's crazy Locking rhythms to the beat of her heart Changing woman into life She has danced into the danger zone When a dancer becomes a dance
