LETRA 'MANIAC'

Just a steel town girl on a Saturday night
Looking for the fight of her life
In the real time world no one sees her at all
They all say she's crazy

Locking rhythm to the beat of her heart
Changing movement into light
She had danced into the danger zone
When the dancer becomes the dance

It can cut you like a knife
if the fight becomes the fire
On the 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 blue line of insanity
Is a place most never see
It's a hard won 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 shove world
But there's always a chance
If the hunger stays the night

There's a cold connective heat
Struggling stretching for the peak
Never stopping with her head against the wind

She's a maniac, maniac I sure know
And she's dancing like she's never danced before

She's a maniac, maniac I sure know
And she's dancing like she's never danced before

It can cut you like a knife
If the fight becomes the fire
On the wire between will and what will be

She's a maniac, maniac I sure know
And she's dancing like she's never danced before

She's a maniac, maniac I sure know
And she's dancing like she's never danced before

I sure know, and she's dancing like she's never danced before
She's a maniac, maniac I sure know

Sobre Maniac

  •  La canción Forma parte de la banda sonora de la película Flashdance  (1983). 

    La canción fue inspirada por la película de terror Maniac que trataba sobre un asesino en serie que acecha a sus víctimas en la ciudad de Nueva York. La letra de la canción originalmente decía:

    He's a maniac, maniac that's for sure,
    He will kill your cat and nail him to the door.

    A propuesta del productor Phil Ramone, la letra fue reescrita para describir a una chica con una pasión por el baile. Entonces quedó:

    She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
    and she's dancing like she's never danced before.
