lyrics

A short walk through the dark down to Broadway
Think I'll choose my room
And watch these figures bend through the glass to the hall way
Some shapes sown to the wall by the moon
Watch them dance and see them spin

A fast break in the silence is louder
When you’re out of tune
This floor won't go silent with out you
It will let some new band swing through
And they will dance and they will sing

Sitting still it can kill you, but run and you’ll lose your head
Its like keeping time for the clock, its a cheap trick for idle hands
you can watch it dance and you can let it spin

Sitting still it can kill you, but run and you’ll lose your head
Its like keeping time for the clock, its a cheap trick for idle hands
This storm can blow in
I have my plane in the air and it's learning
Time is at most just a tailwind you can watch it dance you can let it spin

He will cry, ”had the doors not been locked”
And if not for his geography
He would fly to the peaks of these mountain tops
But for now he sells cars to the streets
he can dance and he can spin

Sitting still it can kill you, but run and you’ll lose your head
Its like keeping time for the clock, its a cheap trick for idle hands
You can watch it dance you can let it spin
Break the dam let the water in
Have the cat count its lives again

Small Time Napoleon Louisville, Kentucky

Small Time Napoleon has been described as “a mad science blend of western swing, hot jazz, and folk” by Insider Louisville’s Kyle Ware. Their live shows are intimate and natural while remaining energetic. Their combination of swing-era influence with modern inclinations has driven them to a sound and style that is both new and old and wholly their own. ... more
