Mechanical Knight
(lyrics by Diane Nalini, music by Rick Rangno)

Turn the key to see just what I can do for you
If you wind me up you'll find
I'll always be there you'll never be blue
I'll be true

If you use the magic words I'll bring all your dreams to life
For the chance at just one dance
I'll hold out my hand and we can take flight
Leave tonight

Stay by my side and maybe we'll find
A place where nobody cares and no one will stare
At such an odd pair as you and me in the light

Turn the key again I'll sing you another verse
And the dance will never end
I'll be by your side for better or worse
That's my curse
