lyrics

Red high heels She knows how they make her feel, kicking out the jigs and reels she can dance around. Red high heels. These ones are the real live deal, their soles are scarlet and the toes are pointed into one.
And still she’ll dance in them around her bedroom wear six inches to the ground and pirouette till dawn.
This old friend got herself a pair at the end of the season’s half-price sale and they’re a size too small. This old friend wore her first pair out again has to have them all re-heeled at least they make her tall.
And still she’ll dance in them around her bedroom wear six inches to the ground and pirouette till dawn.
My old friend is heading back for home again. The sun is coming up in town over Heuston Bridge. Six a.m. the lorries beeping at her hem- line’s around her waist again; her shoes are in her hand. They’re glittering in her hand. They’re red dust in her hand.
