A girl from a good home
meets a guy without a home
The dance floor is lit up
for a dangerous dance
Between the hanging lights,
the eyes meet, and the
guitar sounds go up in smoke.

The drink in the glasses
is trembling, hers, she
swallows to the end,
hearing no danger sounds
nor warning signs, she dances
to him and she makes the
move, from which there is
no easy way back.

They danced themselves, as if
they were alone in the world.
The good cards were in their
hands all night, on the
dance floor, the dance floor.

He's one criminal who goes
in and out of jail, with a
ringing can of worms hanging
on his back. Why would you
entangle yourself in such a
life? Surely you think that
with you he will get better.

Happiness is
Happiness is
Happiness is the perfect crime
Yes, she's his and he's hers
Two flaming eyes
She to him and he to her
On the dance floor, the
dance floor.

An alarm bell rings to him
and he doesn't run away
There is no shelter from
her, not even overseas.
As the lighting of a serrated
knife, her beauty pierces his
heart, knowing that here he
is judged forever.
On the dance floor, the
dance floor.

They danced ...

Happiness is ...
